Rumor: Samsung to produce Exynos 8870 chipset to sell to other manufacturers like Meizu
The Exynos 8890 is expected to be the chipset employed by Sammy this year for its high-end mobile devices. The rumor we alluded to earlier is about the Exynos 8870. This allegedly is a high-end chip that offers lower clock speeds when compared to the Exynos 8890 SoC. It also happened to produce a single-core benchmark score on Geekbench in the neighborhood of 2000, which compares to the 2270 scored by the Exynos 8890 on the same test.
So far, Meizu's name comes up as a possible candidate to purchase the Exynos 8870 SoC. The rumor adds that we could see the chip powering a Meizu PRO 6 and Meizu PRO 6 mini by the second quarter of next year. Considering that we have yet to hear anything about this from Samsung and Meizu, you might want to take this rumor with the proverbial grain of salt.
