Earlier, there were rumors that Samsung might use Qualcomm Xiaolong 875 SoC for Galaxy S21 to stabilize the price due to concerns that the new generation of Xiaolong 865 SoC will help increase the price of the new machine. In view of the fact that the Galaxy S20 in the first half of 2020 has stepped on the line of $999, this rumor has attracted many people’s attention. But now, there are rumors that Samsung will completely give up the Xiaolong 875 and turn to the Galaxy S21 with its own Exynos 1000 chipset. If so, even the traditional US market will miss Xiaolong 875.

netizen @ Boby25846908 said on Twitter that it can confirm samsung the older generation of Qualcomm Xiaolong 865 SoC will not be used on the Galaxy S21, instead of its own Exynos 1000 chipset.
Rumor has it that Exynos 1000 will use the Korean technology giant’s advanced 5nm process, integrating high-performance Cortex-A78 CPU cores, as well as possible Mali-G78 or AMD RDNA GPU.
In view of Samsung’s confusion over its self-developed chip strategy in Exynos 990 generation, this means that the company may return to this route.
Earlier, even another unnamed Samsung chipset surfaced. It can be seen that its AMG GPU even defeated Adreno 865 integrated in Qualcomm Xiaolong 650 in a series of benchmark tests.
As for whether Samsung can attract and meet the consumption demand of Galaxy S21 series smartphones, it still needs time to test. In addition, it is reported that Samsung is also developing an improved Exynos 992 chipset, featuring a 5nm process.
But even if it can narrow the performance gap with Qualcomm Xiaolong 865 to a certain extent, we still have higher expectations for the upcoming Exynos 1000 chipset.
