Sounds like it'll be better for battery life if it's just a lower clocked version of the 8890. 2000 single core is amazing as it is. I'd take it.

Ikr If The 2016 A7 Comes With This I Might Just Get It Over The S7.

Great.. More trouble for qualcomm.. Hope Sony, htc and the likes of others employs Samsung chips on atleast some of their models next year.

Sounds like competition for S652.

No it is not. S652 is weaker specially in GPU performance. Adreno 510 GPU is even slower than Adreno 418 in offscreen GPU tests

Let's declare the A9 the king of dual-core, the Snapdragon the king of quad-core, the Exynos the king of octa-core, and the Helio the king of deca-core.

The true mobile leader is the GPU. All hail King Adreno 530 and Queen T880 MP12!

Wow that phone looks a lot like someone else's phone, yet they aren't being sued. Amazing!
well, looks like the gap with mid-range and flagships, just got a bit smaller with Samsung providing its chips to other OEM's.
Samsung keeps this up, they will be helping other OEM's have just as good of a phone as they themselves have.
2016 is going to be an amazing year for phone battles.

It does, but HTC aren't all that litigious.

I wish samsung do this with Exynos 8890. I'd like to see some xiaomi device with it like for example Mi note 2 with 8890. That would be sick, highly unlikely doe.

Good move for Samsung. They should be moving their focus away from apple anyway.

You don't move your focus away from your archrival who is seizing your customers and fanbase away.

This move is to take back cheap-good phones market or give it to meizu aka do more damage to htc who is now attempting mid range.

Meizu is really doing great... They should include top of the line Soc... using 7420 was a good move... but this time they should stick to sd820 because it support more wider developer support

Hope to see this chip on moto x play or G .
Rumor: Samsung to produce Exynos 8870 chipset to sell to other manufacturers like Meizu
