Samsung has just unveiled two new chipsets for its mobile devices. The new SoCs are built for mid range smartphones and are called the Exynos 1380 and Exynos 1330, which features various improvements in their performance.
Talking about the higher end model first, the Exynos 1380 SoC is a 5nm based processor that has four ARM Cortex A78 cores clocked at 2.4GHz, paired with four ARM Cortex A55 cores that are clocked at 2GHz.
This chipset also features the Mali G68 GPU and can run devices with Full HD+ resolution and up to 144Hz refresh rate. The new chipset is compatible with LPDDR4x and even LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage as well.
It also houses an NPU that can compute 4.9TOPS (Trillion Operations Per Second).
The Exynos 1380 SoC houses a Triple ISP that supports up to 200 megapixel cameras with 64 megapixel resolution and zero shutter lag. The chip also supports 4K recording at 30fps with EIS, HDR, and support for real time object recognition for improved camera performance.
Notably, the processor is 5G enabled and supports mmWave and sub 6GHz networks that can reach peach download speeds for 3.67Gbps and 1.28Gbps upload speeds. Other features include, support for BeiDou, Galileo, GLONASS, GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and more.
Interestingly enough, various leaks and certification have hinted at the Galaxy A54 5G featuring this chipset.
The Exynos 1330 is another new 5nm chipset that is geared more towards entry level smartphones. It offers two Cortex A78 CPU cores clocked at 2.4GHz, six Cortex A55 CPU cores clocked at 2GHz, and the Mali G68 MP2 GPU.
This processor also supports Full HD resolution but it only supports up to 120Hz refresh rate. Although, it is still compatible with LPDDR4X and LPDDR5 RAM chips and UFS 3.1 and even UFS 2.2 storage.
The Exynos 1330’s ISP supports up to 108 megapixel cameras that can capture images at 32 megapixel resolution with zero shutter lag. It can even support a twin 16 megapixel camera setup with zero shutter lag as well. The MFC (Multi Format Codec) can even capture video footage at 4K resolution at 30 fps in HEVC, H.264, and VP8 codecs.
The South Korean tech giant’s first entry level chips comes with a built-in 5G modem capable of sub 6GHz 5G networks.
Thanks to this, it can hit speeds download speeds up to 2.55Gbps and upload speeds of up to 1.28Gbps. Other notable features includes, support for BeiDou, Galileo, GLONASS, GPS, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and more. Based on recent rumors and sightings on certification sites, the Galaxy A14 5G will likely be the first model to debut with this chipset.
