As always Samsung made two different versions of this phone. They used their own Exynos 2100 in the international variant. For the USA and China, they used the Snapdragon 888 chipset. Both of these chipsets are built on 5nm technology. Undoubtedly both are the best processors in today’s market for Android smartphones.
CPU & GPU
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100 are octa-core processors. Here Exynos seems slightly faster than another one. Just take a look at the core information and you will understand why I’m saying this.
CPU cores and GPU-
Exynos 2100: Octa-core (1×2.9 GHz Cortex-X1 & 3×2.80 GHz Cortex-A78 & 4×2.2 GHz Cortex-A55), GPU: Mali-G78 MP14
Snapdragon 888: Octa-core (1×2.84 GHz Kryo 680 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 680 & 4×1.80 GHz Kryo 680) GPU: Adreno 660
The two most powerful GPUs are used in these phones. So you do not need to worry about it.
