Samsung on Tuesday has launched the all-new Exynos 880 chipset at an event. The Exynos 880 SoC is a mid-range chipset and will come equipped with several mid-segment smartphones this year. Vivo is the first company to ship the Vivo Y70s smartphone with the chipset and more companies are expected to follow along. Let’s take a look at the details.
Exynos 880 5G Chipset Details
The Exynos 880 SoC is based on the 8nm FinFET process that makes the chipset efficient. It comes with Cortex-A77(Dual-core) clocked at 2.0GHz, Cortex A55(Hexa-core) clocked at 1.8GHz. This makes it a powerful mid-range octa-core chipset.
In terms of graphics, it has the Mali-G76 MP5 GPU which supports advanced and intense graphical tasks performed on the phone. It can be paired with up LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.1 and eMMC 5.1 storage.
It supports up to FHD+ display with a resolution of up to 2520 x 1080 pixels. In terms of optics, it supports up to 64-megapixel primary camera or a pairing of 20-megapixel + 20-megapixel lenses. The chipset can handle 4K video recording at 30fps decoded with H.264, HEVC(H.265), and VP9 formats.
It is a 5G chipset that can be used for fast 5G connectivity on smartphones. The speeds can go up to 2.55Gbps for downloads and 1.28Gbps for uploads. All this will be supported upon the sub-6Ghz 5G NR networks.
Other than this, Wi-Fi 5 at 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, FM radio, BeiDou, Galileo, and GLONASS are supported in terms of connectivity.
The 5G chipset will be used in many mid-range smartphones starting this year. As said earlier, the Vivo Y70s was the first smartphone to get the Exynos 880 chipset. Samsung’s Exynos plans to mass-produce the chipset for upcoming smartphones.
