A Samsung Exynos 8890 Chip Breezes Through GeekBench Inside A Lucky-LTE Device

Samsung's semiconductor division grew to the top of the Android realm over the course of only a few years, and there's small doubt that the Exynos 7420 is the reigning performance champ. The company appears to be working to diversify its SoC range and a recent model has appeared in GeekBench listing.

The spotted chipset is reported as "universal8890", meaning it may be released as Exynos 8890, instead of the Exynos M1 designation that's been mentioned. The SoC features an octa-core processor, clocked at 1.38GHz, but its Processor ID is none of the familiar ones. The ARM implementer 83 is neither the known Exynos 7420 (ARM implementer 65), nor the purported Snapdragon 820 (AMR implementer 81). That recommends we may very well be looking at Samsung's own Mongoose cores here.

They're scoring quite high, too, though not on par with the existing 7420, which is typically around the 5200 imprint in the multi-core test. The low clock rate may be key in this respect, as 1.38Giga Hertz (GHz) is significantly below the rumored 2.3Giga Hertz (GHz) maximum.

The tested unit packs 4GB of RAM, though if it is a flagship chip indeed, we may see it coupled with 6GB, considering the direction the industry is headed. Another fascinating point is that the chip is implemented inside a device, codenamed LUCKY-LTE. You could speculate that it goes to indicate Samsung finally adopting its own modem, instead of using a elegant Qualcomm solution.
