According to reports from GSMArena, the two new leaked processors happen to be in the 9000 series and 7000 series chipsets. The Exynos 9610, Samsung's next generation processor will be competing with the Snapdragon 660 processor from Qualcomm. Built on the 14nm manufacturing process, the octa-core architecture of the processor will be based on ARM's Cortex-A73 and A53 four of each.

The Exynos 9160 Processor from Samsung will come out with a three-core Mali-G72 GPU, with an increased efficiency by 25 percent. The new graphical chip will support advanced VR and machine learning. Samsung has also added Cat. 13 LTE model that will offer speeds up to 600/150 Mbps. Details from SamMobile indicate that Samsung will begin using their newly built processor on consumer devices by the end of the current year.

The Exynos 9610 processor by Samsung is the first to carry the Exynos '9' branding. The current processor that's on the company's latest Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphone, is the Exynos 8895. At the moment, there's no detailed information about the two upcoming processors from the South Korean manufacturer.

The Exynos 7872, the other processor that has been leaked alongside the Exynos 9610, is based on a hexacore architecture that will also follow the 14nm manufacturing process. The two primary cores will be Cortex A-72 chips, alongside the four Cortex A-53 processors. Samsung will be using the previous generation single Mali-G71 chip. A Cat 7 LTE Modem on the 7872 processor will be offering speeds up to 300/100 Mbps.
