Next year, Samsung will be in somewhat of a dilemma. The newest Exynos and Snapdragon chips that will power the Galaxy S10 in various markets are

compared to previous versions of this chip. The Snapdragon 855 has the benefit of being built on a 7nm process, meaning it will be more efficient and powerful. The Exynos 9820

(and 4K recording at 150 fps) while the 855 tops out at 4K@60 fps, just like the Snapdragon 845.

For Samsung, this will mean equalizing the two chipsets to make sure the Galaxy S10 it sells in various markets are all equally equipped. The Exynos version does stand to be more negatively affected, of course. While Samsung can

to match that of the Exynos variant, the 855 will still be more efficient. The difference between 7nm and 8nm manufacturing process won’t be too big, but even a slight advantage in efficiency is useful when you’re talking about a flagship phone. But the 855’s inability to record 8K videos could also stop Samsung from an important marketing standpoint.

). And selling a flagship phone that can record 8K videos (or 4K videos at @150 fps) along with an 8K TV would be a useful marketing trick. But it’s something the company won’t be able to do in 2019. Not if the Galaxy S10 cannot offer 8K recording because the Snapdragon 855 doesn’t support it.

If history is any guide, Samsung probably is going to leave out 8K video recording from the Galaxy S10. Well, unless Qualcomm and the Korean giant can team up and make the feature possible on the Snapdragon 855 variant as well. And our question to our readers is: What would you prefer to have if you are hoping to buy the Galaxy S10? Would you like to see 8K video recording, or would better battery life be your choice?
