Lenovo May Use Samsung’s New Exynos 8870 Chip In One Of Its Phones
Lenovo may use Samsung’s unannounced Exynos 8870 chipset in one of its phones, if a new report doing the rounds is to be gone by. A new report coming in from China suggests that Lenovo is set to become one of the new clients of Samsung’s new chip. The company may use this chipset in one of its upcoming handsets.
Details about both the Exynos 8870 chip as well as Lenovo’s upcoming phone are scarce as of now.
If the report is to be gone by then Lenovo may likely join another Chinese counterpart Meizu that was recently also reported to come with Samsung’s new chipset in its upcoming Pro 6 phone.
Samsung is reportedly working on two variants of its next generation Exynos 8 CPU: the more powerful Exynos 8890 and the lesser powerful Exynos 8870. While Samsung may reserve the Exynos 8890 for its own high end phones, the company is expected to sell the lesser variant Exynos 8870 to third party OEMs. Looks like Meizu and Lenovo may be one of the first companies to get access to this yet-to-be-announced chipset.
In another news, Lenovo will launch the K4 Note in India on January 5. The K4 Note which is successor to the K3 Note is expected to be an all metal phone cramming in 3GB of RAM and a fingerprint scanner for added security.
