TechInsights constantly monitors the market for semiconductor innovation, and we hear that Samsung has packed a lot of it into the soon-to-be-released Galaxy S20 line of phones. We are already planning our teardown activities, and looking forward to March 6.
What we expect to see:
- New Exynos 990 chipset in Korean editions of some of the S20 line – the Exynos 990 with 7 nm EUV, LPDDR5 SoC alongside the Exynos 5123 5G modem
- New Qualcomm 865 processor in North American editions – the Qualcomm 865 LPDDR5 / LPDDR4X
- Multiple versions of the phones. Three main categories of the S20: S20, S20+, S20 Ultra. What we don’t know is how many geo-specific versions there will be with different combinations of processors, cameras, image sensors, and other components.
- New Qualcomm 5G modem, transceiver
- A variety of new image sensors, cameras, and ToF
We were impressed with Samsung’s launch event on February 11, and we are looking forward to the product release date (reportedly March 6, 2020), so we can get these phones in our labs.
