The Exynos 9610 is essentially a re-hash of what Samsung released this year, but with 10nm and using all ARM processors. The Exynos 9610 is expected to ship with an ARM Cortex A73 CPU cores paired with A53 little cores. The GPU will also be a G71, meaning that none of the parts of the SoC itself will be anything new. Previous rumors stated that it might have a Mali G72 which is ARM's latest GPU core technology.

The Exynos 7885 is a more mid-range version of the 9610 with only two A73 cores as opposed to the 9610's four cores. This is designed to be placed in more budget devices and is only a 14nm chip, which would help it hit a lower price point but would lack the power efficiency and performance that one would expect from the 9610.

Additionally, there's going to be a 9800 series class Exynos coming soon for the Samsung Galaxy S9 for next year which could be 7nm. There aren't any solid rumors yet, but Samsung's manufacturing capabilities are very advanced, and Samsung likes to test out their process on their own chips for their flagship phones.
