Samsung also said that it will have an upgraded GPU, which could be Mali-G72 GPU, an upgrade to the Mali G-71 GPU present in the 8895 for up to 40% improvement in performance.
The announcement is scheduled ahead of CES 2018 that kicks off on January 9th, but the Galaxy S9 and S9+ smartphones are not expected until the MWC in February. We should know all the details about the next-gen Exynos SoC next Thursday.
