Samsung Exynos 850 SoC Launched For Budget Smartphones

After launching the Exynos 880 earlier this week, Samsung has now quietly released the detailed specifications of another mid-range SoC, the Exynos 850. The Korean tech giant has now listed the new chipset on its Samsung website, and it says the processor is designed for smartphones and tablets.

Samsung said the chip will offer “richer user experiences with superb processing power, efficiency and connectivity”.

Samsung Exynos 850 Specifications

The Exynos 850 (part number S5E3830) is built on Samsung’s 8nm LPP process, and comes with an octa-core Cortex-A55 CPU and Mali-G52 GPU. Aimed at lower mid-range devices, the Exynos 850 does not offer 5G connectivity, and instead, comes with an LTE modem with Cat.7 D/L and Cat.13 U/L speeds. It supports LPDDR4x memory and eMMC 5.1 storage.

Some of its other specifications include support for FHD+ (2520×1080) displays and up to 21.7MP cameras (16MP + 5MP in case of dual-cameras) at the front and rear. Wireless connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0 and FM Radio, while satellite navigation systems include GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo. It also supports encoding with HEVC(H.265), H.264 and VP8 codecs.

The Exynos 850 is already in the market with at least a Samsung smartphone, the Galaxy A21s, which was announced earlier this month in London. It is a lower mid-range device priced at £179.00 (around Rs. 16,000 / $210) in the UK, but will very likely be priced lower in India if the company decides to bring it here. Either way, Samsung is yet to reveal when the new chipset will start showing up in more devices, but it might happen at some stage in the coming months.
