A new Samsung Exynos processor has turned up in some benchmarks, the processor apparently has the code name of Exynos M1 at the moment.
The processor will apparently come with eight cores and you can see the benchmark below from the Geekbench database.
The new Samsung Exynos processor is listed with a motherboard identifier of universal8990, so the new processor may launch as the Samsung Exynos 8990.
As yet there are no details on when Samsung will launch this new processor, Qualcomm are expected to launch their new Snapdragon 820 next year and we suspect Samsung’s will also launch next year.
This new processor could be used in Samsung’s next generation Galaxy smartphones which are expected to be announced early in 2016.
