Samsung officially reveals the chipset that will power its first notched phone, the Galaxy M

Samsung unveils Exynos 7904 SoC for mid-range devices
Samsung just unveiled a brand new upper mid-range chipset in its Exynos lineup, one that will most likely be found inside the upcoming Galaxy M series of notched handsets. Samsung boasts that the new Exynos 7904 chip will be bringing high-end features to the middle-range segment and will be mainly used to tackle the large Indian market, where the South Korean company is having troubles lately. 

On the technical side of things, the Exynos 7904 will be an octa-core endeavor built on a 14nm manufacturing process. The chipset will feature two high-performance 1.8GHz Cortex-A73 cores aided by a sixtet of 1.6GHz Cortex-A53 cores geared towards power efficiency. The latest Exynos will flaunt a Cat. 12 LTE modem with 3-carrier aggregation supporting downlink speeds of up to 600Mbps, triple-camera support, as well as FullHD+ display resolutions. 

As we already mentioned, the Exynos 7904 chip will most likely make its debut inside the upcoming Galaxy M20 and M30, which are going to be Samsung first (and hopefully last) notched phones. The invitations have already been sent out, and the event is scheduled for January 28. It will be launched in India first, but a global rollout will follow suit shortly after.

Interestingly, there have been a few rumors that the Galaxy S10+ and 5G Galaxy S10 could boast the very same batteries that could make the rounds in the M20 and M30 phones. We are talking about 4,000 and 5,000mAh, respectively, which is quite the saucy capacity indeed! Of course, nothing is official until it is.
