The company Samsung will introduce the flagship Galaxy S21 smartphones in a month. They will be powered by chipsets Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and Samsung Exynos 2100 according to the region where they will be sold. Portal Phandroid now informs about the results of the benchmark Geekbenchwhich show that the Exynos 2100 should be better in performance.
The result of Exynos is better, but not marginal
Both chipsets are made by a 5nm manufacturing process. Unlike the Exynos 2100, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 has already been officially introduced and has even been tested in several benchmarks. Its performance was about 10-20% higher than the previous generation. Exynos 21000, on the other hand, does not have official benchmark results, as Samsung will not officially introduce it until January 12. It should be two days before the introduction of the Galaxy S21 flagship smartphone series.

Famous leaker Ice Universe but on Tuesday released the results of Exynos 2100 in the popular benchmark Geekbench. He tests chipsets in two tests – single-core and multi-core. In the first case, Exynos scored 2100 1089 points. This is less than the official result of Snapdragon 888, which scored 1135 points. More important is the multi-core test, where Samsung got the chipset 3963 points. This is almost 200 points more than the official result of Snapdragon 888, which scored 3794 points.
Will Exynos chipsets fix a tarnished reputation?
The difference in the result is not marginal, but it shows that the flagship Exynos chipset could be more powerful after years than the solution from Qualcomm. For the past two years, Samsung’s customers on the European continent have complained that they received a weaker chipset in flagship models than US and South Korean customers for the same price. In addition, Exynos chips were accompanied by problems with overheating and high energy consumption.
However, the Exynos 2100 will also compete in the market with chipsets in competing smartphones. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro smartphone with the 5nm Kirin 9000 chipset has been on the market for a long time. Chinese chip maker MediaTek recently announced a direct competitor to the Snapdragon 888, which it wants to introduce early next year. But neither is considered the most powerful chipset on the market. This is the Apple A14 Bionic in the Apple iPhone 12 with iOS smartphones. However, its comparison with chipsets in Android smartphones is often problematic, because they are two different platforms.
