Samsung is not yet over Galaxy Note7 fiasco and now, they have something new to worry about. According to reports, a Samsung LSI official was arrested selling confidential information of its 14nm and 1nm technology to its competitors.
The top secret info contained within the document suggested that Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone could use its new Exynos 8895 processor with ARM’s Mali-G71 GPU.
The Exynos 8895 is reportedly made using 10nm Exynos 8895 processor. Moreover, ARM’s latest GPU, the Mali-G71 clocked at 850MHz is equally powerful. It is said to be 1.8 times more powerful than its Mali-T880 MP12 GPU (seen in Galaxy S7). It is based on Bitfrost architecture and should offer premium 4K and VR experience.The GPU will be compatible with Vulkan, OpenGL ES 3.2 GPU Compute and Android RenderScript APIs.
There are rumors that Galaxy S8 could feature in a 4K display unit to go at par with processor and GPU 4K capabilities.
For now, the information available is at very preliminary stages. Nothing has been official confirmed, so we advice users to take this as a spicy treat. Regardless, stay tuned at TechAndroids for further updates.
