Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S20 series with the Exynos 990 and Snapdragon 865 chipsets. The company is currently selling the Snapdragon 865 variant of its Galaxy S20 series in South Korea.
A new report suggests the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series will be powered by a new Exynos 992 chipset in select markets. Unlike the Galaxy S20’s Exynos 990 chipset, the Exynos 992 will be built using a more efficient 6nm process, and it is also expected to offer slightly improved performance. It is expected to be announced sometime later this year.
Here’s the list of eligible Samsung devices that will get the One UI 3.0/Android 11
According to the ZDNet Korea report, after adopting Exynos 992 for the Galaxy Note 20 devices, Samsung could switch back to the Exynos processor in the home market for its upcoming flagship smartphones.
While Qualcomm was also rumored to bring a slightly upgraded version of the Snapdragon 865 chipset called the Snapdragon 865+ in Q3 2020. It is now confirmed that Qualcomm isn’t going to release another flagship mobile processor this year.

Samsung’s current Exynos 990 chipset is based on the 7nm EUV FinFET process and has criticized for its weak performance compared to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865. The switch to 6nm is expected to result in higher energy efficiency, as well as slightly faster performance.
According to a recent report, Samsung has started to prepare for the launch event for its Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Fold 2, which is planned for August 2020.
