Samsung has announced its Exynos 980 processor, which will bring 5G to the budget range smartphones. Yes, very soon, your mid-range Galaxies will have 5G enabled out of the box, even if there is no 5G in your locality!
The Exynos 980 is based on 8nm FinFET process which comes with a Hexa-core design. Yes, a Hexa -core processor. The 2 high-performance cores are Cortex-A77 whereas the 4 cores are Cortex-A55 efficiency cores. Along with this, there is Mali-G67 MP5 GPU inbuilt into the processor.
However, if we compare it with the Snapdragon 855, the 5G modem is built into the CPU, which means the size occupied by the processor will be quite less.
The new processor will normally deliver speeds up to 1Gbps. Whereas on the sub-6GHz band, it will touch the 2.55Gbps speed at peak.
Also, the processor will feature an NPU, which will make the device much faster than the previous generation smartphones.
Also, Samsung added the support of camera up to 108MP, which pretty nice, if we consider that even Qualcomm doesn’t have that much support yet.
There will be multi-codec encoding and decoding of 4K UHD videos at 120FPS. Do note that the Exynos 9890/25 has support for 8K at 30FPS.
The Exynos 980 will also support HDR10+ displays. Which means the high-end quality S10+ and other displays will come to mid-range pretty soon.
The firm will begin mass production of the processor at the end of the year. Which means first smartphone with this processor will come out in 2020.
