Samsung drops a New Hint - Exynos 9 Series Coming Soon

Just recently, the Samsung Exynos Twitter account in an attempt to keep everyone on their toes for MWC has put out a teaser image hinting at a new SoC that is Labeled as "coming soon," where the 9 implies that this is a new series of Samsung's in-house chipset.

It could be imagined that this new Exynos line may appear in some variants of the upcoming Galaxy S8, along with the Snapdragon 835 versions. There are no guarantees, however, so we will just need to wait to see what Samsung has in store for us with its 2017 lineup. It is assumed that the chip will use the Korean giant's 10nm FinFET manufacturing process, the one that the Snapdragon 835 will possibly use.
Remembering the images that was leaked few months ago that mentioned an octa-core "Exynos 8895." It would come in two versions: the 8895M and the 8895V. The M was said to be clocked at 2.5GHz + 1.7GHz and have the Mali G71-MP20 GPU, while the V would have a frequency of 2.3GHz + 1.7GHz and a Mali G71-MP18.
The leak also alleged that the 8895 series would be manufactured on a 10nm process and support UFS 2.1 storage, LPDDR4x RAM, a Cat. 16 LTE modem, and 4K displays. Although, this has never been confirmed by Samsung, just bear in mind. However, it is also possible that the supposed 8895 could have been rebranded into an Exynos 9000 series.

Again, all this are speculation.
