Samsung is currently working on its new Samsung Exynos 1280 Chipset For Entry-Level Smartphones. Samsung has been a leader in the smartphone industry for a long time. They’ve come a long way from their early days of producing flip phones. Samsung is constantly trying to stay ahead of the curve, and for this reason, they always have new innovations in the works.
Exynos 1280 Chipset
The latest news from Samsung is that they are currently working on a chipset called Exynos 1280 for entry-level smartphones. There’s no word yet on when people can expect to see these hit stores, but it sounds like it won’t be too long until we see them pop up!
Samsung has invested time and money into its Exynos line of chipsets for mid-range and flagship Android smartphones. However, it looks like they’re gearing up to release an Exynos chipset that will be built for entry-level smartphones.
Exynos 1280 Specifications
Tipster Ice Universe revealed that the South Korean giant is developing a new Exynos Processor for entry-level mobile phones which will be manufactured using a 5nm technology. The tipster also reported that the specification of this chip is lower than the Exynos 1080.
As of now, not much is known about this upcoming chipset for budget smartphones but given that 5G has become mainstream now, we expect the processor to come with 5G connectivity.
Exynos 1080 Specifications
The Exynos 1080 is currently the company’s starting range processor which is an octa-core chipset having one Arm Cortex A78 core running at 2.8GHz, three Cortex A78 cores clocked at 2.6GHz, and four Cortex A55 cores. Right now the Vivo smartphone company is the only brand that uses Exynos 1080 chipsets in their smartphones.
Going forward, Samsung may be looking to increase the usage of its own Exynos series chips in its smartphones, and thus, there is a high probability that the upcoming entry-level chipset, Exynos 1280, will be powering smartphones launched by Samsung.
Other than that the company is also ready to launch another processor which is Exynos 2200 having AMD GPU. This is the flagship-level chipset and will be used in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 series.
Samsung has revamped its focus towards the chipset business instead of relying on other companies for supplies. The idea behind this is to make sure that they aren’t dependent on others more than they already are. They had a big hand in the development of Google’s first custom chip, which is called Tensor. There are rumors claiming that Tensor is actually an upgraded version of their Exynos chip line.Spread the love
