According to previous reports, Korean electronics giant has already gone long way in testing their upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7. In fact leaks hint that the Galaxy S7 will come with three different SoC under the hood (to be launched in separate markets).
Apparently the Exynos 8890 is among those three SoCs which the Korean OEM is working on. Now a report has arisen which claims that Samsung will start mass production of the next generation Exynos SoC from December this year.
Rumors hint that the Exynos 8890 is codenamed M1 or Mongoose. It will in fact be the first Samsung made SoC which will come with custom made CPU cores. Rather the Korean company will no longer be using the ARM design anymore.
With Samsung targeting to make an impact in the SoC vendor market, it is a wise decision by the company to use custom cores instead of ARM designed ones. As of now other than ARM only Intel, Qualcomm and AMD has custom designed core. In fact that the new move will help Samsung to drive better performance from their Exynos SoC and also optimize it as per the requirement of their smartphones.
