Currently the Exynos 8895 is the top of the line chip from Samsung. Which alongside the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is also made on the 10nm manufacturing process. While Samsung also have plans to launch their upcoming 7nm chip in the year 2019. But it looks like this is not where Samsung stops. As the company is now developing a new chip. That will be based on a new 11nm manufacturing process based on FinFET technology.
Samsung also made a press release saying that their upcoming 11LPP (low power plus) process used on their 11nm chips. Will be up to 15% more powerful over its 14LLP process, which was used on its 14nm chips. That were mostly used on mid ranged smartphones. Like the Samsung Galaxy A and J series. Samsung also made a statement saying ”we have added the 11nm process to our roadmap to offer advanced options for various applications. Through this, Samsung has completed a comprehensive process roadmap spanning from 14nm to 11nm, 10nm, 8nm, and 7nm in the next three years.’’
There is no actual launch date on this upcoming 11nm chip yet. But do expect them to show in mid to high ranged smartphones starting next year from Samsung. Where Samsung Galaxy lineup like the A, J and C series would probably be the only ones to come equipped with it. Aside from that Samsung also pointed towards their upcoming flagship 7nm chips. Saying that its 7LPP EUV (extreme ultra violet) lithography technology is moving ahead without any hurdles or delays. Where Samsung is expected to start its production next year, while we would most probably see one in 2019.
Samsung’s next step after the manufacturing of 7nm chip would be moving on to a much smaller manufacturing process. Which will be based on a new 4nm chip that also comes in the company’s road map for years to come.
