Samsung Galaxy S21 chipset looks set to launch just days before the phone itself Samsung Galaxy S20

Flagship Samsung phones use different chipsets in different regions – in the Americas and Australia they generally use Qualcomm Snapdragon processors (the most recent of which, the Snapdragon 888, was unveiled in early December), and in Europe and Asia Samsung tends to use its own Exynos line.

The next Exynos chipset, which rumors suggest will be called the Exynos 2100, is coming soon: Samsung has confirmed its next processor is coming on January 12.
