MediaTek and Qualcomm have a number of mid-range 5G chipsets out there. Samsung has in a bid not to be left out has delivered its most affordable 5G chipset, the Exynos 880. Vivo has already announced a phone powered by this chipset – the Y70s.
The building of the SoC was done on the 8nm FinFET manufacturing process and uses an octa-core CPU with two Cortex-A77 cores ticking at 2GHz and six smaller Cortex-A55 cores running at 1.8GHz. The GPU on board is the Mali-G76 MP5.
The ISP caps at 64MP for single camera setups and dual implementations can go up to 20MP + 20MP. Ultra HD recordings at 30fps are the maximum allowed and the tall FHD+ resolution (2520 x 1080px) is all you can squeeze out of the SoC. Samsung’s specs sheet reads LPDRR4X memory and storage support of up to UFS 2.1 and eMMC 5.1.
The built in modem comes with sub-6GHz 5G networks support with theoretical download speed of up to 2.55Gbps and 1.28Gbps upload speeds.
The chipset has obviously already entered mass production seeing as the vivo Y70s that will be its pioneer is launches on June 1. More phones will probably make use of the chipset in months to come.
