Samsung prepping a next generation 14nm Exynos 7890 chipset
Samsung might be working on two more Exynos chipset modules - 7890 and 7650 - judging from a LinkedIn profile that was sent to us. After mishaps with overheating Exynos 5 series, Samsung used its homebrew processor line sparingly, but is now back in full force with the Exynos 7420, that is about to go into the Galaxy S6.

Regarding the differences between Snapdragon 810 and the Exynos 7-series, we'd have to wait and see exactly what modification Samsung will use for the S6, but one thing is for certain - it will be built on the superior 14nm process, whereas Qualcomm uses 20nm for the 810, and only this year will move down to 14nm. The 14nm bit, however, is only mentioned for the Exynos 7890 here, whereas the other piece is rounded as "the first 64-bit," which is actually the silicon that is going in the S6, so this one might just be a rebrand of the chipset we will be taking for a ride two weeks from now.

Thanks for the tip!

The 7650 seems interesting. It should be a 2+4 combo like the Snapdragon 808 on 14 nm fab. It can be used in super high-end midrangers like S6 neo of sorts.

Don't thin kit's 14nm, as they mentioned 14nm specifically for 7890. I think this could be 20/28nm for midrange phones. 14nm could be specific for high end products currently.

Probably not, as Samsung is investing heavily in 14nm production capacity.

Samsung is making big strides this year.
The Galaxy s6 is starting to make me feel like when the galaxy s3 was unveiled.

Show us what you can do Samsung. More competition will force Qualcomm to bring better chipset. They milk krait for too long now they're paying the price.
