As Mobile World Congress draws near, more information is coming out about all the new phones from key players in the industry. One such hotly expected family of smartphones will be 7th generation of Galaxy phones, more commonly known as the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Samsung Galaxy S7, codenamed SM-G930F (the international version of S7) is expected to use a ‘Exynos 8890 version 7.0’ processor. From the information we managed to obtain, it will use Gen2 14nm FinFET process, designed and manufactured in Austin, TX. Given that 14nm is starting to look like a long node for Intel as well, as we reported yesterday
According to a rumor, Apple’s next processor should bear the name ‘A10’ and it may come with as much as six-cores. It would be manufactured using a 14 nanometer production process and it would be produced by either Samsung in Texas or TMSC in Taiwan. Original rumor mentioned 10nm process node, but that just goes to show that original source should be taken with a kilogram of sea salt on its tail. These two companies would be competing for orders, the Weibo source said. We can get behind the naming, but the rest seems a bit off as Apple is not a company known for doing major internal hardware changes.
