6nm based Exynos 992 for the next flagship? 

Samsung announced the Exynos 990 back in October 2019 which featured a 7nm architecture that allowed for 120Hz display. You can read more about the chipset at this link

It arrived in the Samsung Galaxy S20 series in February 2020. A few months later, S20 Ultra owners claimed that the Exynos variant was inferior to the Snapdragon variant.

XDA Developers reports that reliable source ZDnet claims Samsung maybe upgrading and redesigning the 7nm Exynos 990 into a 6nm Exynos 992. This new chipset is expected to offer a more power-efficient design with minor improvements to processing performance that will allow the chipset to better compete with the Snapdragon 865 and the alleged upcoming Snapdragon 865+.

The new chip is expected to arrive in the upcoming Galaxy Note series. The alleged Snapdragon 865+ was scheduled to be announced in the third quarter of 2020 but was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This could be the reason why Samsung could be leaning towards releasing an Exynos 992 equipped Note-series smartphone in South Korea instead of a Snapdragon variant. 

To recall, Samsung released Snapdragon 865 variants of its flagship S20 series in South Korea after only releasing Exynos processors in flagships for the past several years.
