Following the introduction of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G premium processor last December, Samsung has now unveiled the Exynos 2100 5G mobile SoC with many of the same features and specifications.
The new 5G processor notable features a similar eight-core design with one Cortex-X1 core, three Cortex-A78 cores, and four low-power Cortex-A55 cores, 26 TOPS of AI computing, support for 4K UHD displays, as well as a 5G modem built into the chip.
Samsung Exynos 2100 key features and specifications:
- SoC – Octa-core processor with
- Single-core Cortex-X1 @ up to 2.9GHz
- Triple-core Cortex-A78 @ up to 2.8GHz
- Quad-core Cortex-A55 @ up to 2.2GHz
- GPU – Mali-G78 MP14
- AI Accelerator – 26 TOPS triple NPU
- Memory – LPDDR5 (51.2GB/s)

The Arm Cortex-X1 core boosts single-core performance by up to 19%, while multi-core performance gets improved by up to to 33%, and the Mali-G78 MP14 GPU offers up 46% faster graphics performance compared to the Mali-G77 MP11 GPU found in Exynos 990.
If we look at Snapdragon 888 specifications all features are virtually the same, up to the 5nm Samsung manufacturing process using in both processors. It’s almost like both companies worked together… The main difference may be the Mali-G78 MP14 GPU against the Adreno 660 GPU.
Samsung says the Exynos 2100 is currently in mass production. More information may be found in the awful “modern” product page where you have to continuously scroll to get tidbits of information coming at a time.
