Samsung to Hold an Exynos-Only Event on Jan 12

Just two days before the Galaxy S21 family launch, South Korean tech giant Samsung is holding an Exynos-only event called Exynos On. Notably, this is the first time Samsung is holding a dedicated event for a chip, which signifies the importance of the upcoming Exynos 2100.

It seems like Samsung is trying to beat Qualcomm, and preliminary benchmark results suggest an outstanding performance not only in single but in multi-threaded scenarios as well. Aside from the new architecture consisting of an ARM X1 Prime @2.91GHz core, 4x Cortex-A78 @2.81GHz cores, and a cluster of 4x Cortex-A55 @2.21GHz cores, we also expect some under the hood improvements and additional features to be announced.

The event is going to take place at 11 PM KST, January 12. It will be streamed on Samsung’s official YouTube channel where everyone can follow it live.

Previous leaks around the Galaxy S21 have given us a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming flagship trio, and the Exynos 2100 was also spotted on Geekbench.

As for the device itself, it bears the SM-G998B model number and managed 1,006 points in the single-core test and 3,059 points in the multi-core department. The base frequency of the CPU is listed at 2.21 GHz which is likely the power-efficient Cortex A-55 cluster. Comparing these scores with those of the Snapdragon 888 version of the S21 reveals a small difference in favour of the Exynos-powered device.

Nevertheless, we can expect a stellar performance from Samsung with this new phone and chipset. What do you think?
