Half of the Galaxy S7 units may come with Snapdragon 820, as Samsung strives for Exynos 8890 yield

Galaxy S6, which runs exclusively on Exynos, Samsung is planning to utilize Snapdragon 820 in about half of its future Galaxy S7 units, so the ratio with Exynos 8890 could reach 1:1.Well, that's a no-brainer, given that Qualcomm will be producing its monster chipset in Samsung's foundries, but until now we were in the dark roughly how many Exynos-equipped Galaxy S7 units will leave the conveyor belt, and how many Snapdragon 820-laden handsets. Today's report in Korean media states that, unlike what it did with the
Previously we heard that the Snapdragon 820 chipset will be placed in Galaxy S7 versions destined for the US, for instance, as Qualcomm has unmatched integrated LTE modem that can attune perfectly to the various US carrier 4G networks. Interestingly enough, however, the source reconfirms that Exynos 8890 will also come as a compete system-on-a-chip (SoC) package, introducing Samsung's own LTE modem able to achieve Cat. 12 600Mbps download speeds, just like Snapdragon 820.
However, there might be an issue with getting enough yield for this new Exynos SoC, suggested the insiders, and that is why Samsung is trying to ensure a good supply balance for the Galaxy S7, hedging its bets with both excellent chipsets.

Screw the S820. Give the people what they want and that's the Exynos!

Most people don't care about what processor is inside the phone. They just want a phone that works great. Samsung would not put snapdragon processor if snapdragon processor has problem. If possible, try to limit your Hyper Samsung fanboyism.

That's the logic of people here, I remember someone calling me an SheepDroid just because we disagreed on an idea, he doesn't even know what devices I use lol. That someone is the same idiot who says nobody makes money with android.

Yes, the hundred million people who snapped up the Galaxy S3, S4, S5, Note 3, and Note 4 were so disappointed in the Snapdragon inside, they... oh, wait. They didn't care.

Exynos vs Snapdragon performance was pretty lopsided before but if those benchmarks are true, the Exynos destroys the SD820. What a waste of all that power if they have to cater to the lowest common denominator.

Im selling phone accessories in a busy mall in Dublin Ireland for one year now and what i can tell you half people think the model of their phone is Galaxy. I think like 60 percent of them think their s6 is free. Why would these peple care if its a 620 or its exynos inside? I think like 50 percent of the people dont even know there is a processor inside.

It looks like qualcomm has supported h265 video coding for some time(800/801). Why in the hell aren't we using it!?!? It would really cut down on the space video takes up! If they would have been using it since the 800, we would have support for it in alot more video editors by now! Atleast give us an option to use the H265 coding in these new phones!
