Samsung's new Exynos 9 Series 8895 is the first processor to have a gigabit LTE modem that supports five carrier aggregation, or 5CA. This means Exynos 8895-powered smartphones will be capable of 1Gbps downlink speeds, and 150Mbps uploads.

 

The new Exynos 8895 has an 8-core processor at its heart, with 4K video support thanks to ARM's latest Mali-G71 GPU, and when teamed with the advanced MFC (multi-format codec) it will support video recording and playback at a huge 4K 120FPS. This is a huge deal, as it means Samsung's new Galaxy S8 might be capable of 4K 120FPS support... which would be, in the words of Ron Burgundy, that would be "kind of a big deal".

 

Better yet, 4K 120FPS allows for some serious VR upgrades to the next-gen Gear VR headset... which would see an 8-core processor capable of 4K 120FPS camera capture, and what could be a big upgrade on the VR side of things? The next generation of smartphones could have 120Hz displays, which would be amazing.
