Samsung isn’t just a maker of smartphones. It’s got several other items under its belt. And one of them is the line of their chipset / processor.
It has two processors under its name, Exynos 980 and Exynos 990. But now, Samsung has recently unveiled a brand-new Exynos 880 chipset.
Features of Samsung Exynos 880
Unlike its high-end chipsets, the Exynos 880 is designed for mid-range applications. It may be in inexpensive smartphones, but it has almost the same capacity as the Exynos 980.
Samsung Newest Chipset Exynos 880 is based on the 8-nanometer FinET process. It has an integrated 5G modem that supports up to 2.55Gbs of download speed and up to 1.28Gbps of upload speed.
There are two ARM Cortex A76 cores running at 2GHz in the latest Samsung Exynos 880. And there are 6 ARM Cortex A55 cores performing at 1.8GHz.
The GPU used by Exynos 880 is ARM Mali-G76 MP5. It supports high refresh rates as well as Full HD+ display. So, this processor is a gamer ‘s dream when you’re looking for a mid-range smart phone with excellent results.
In addition, Exynos 880 also supports UFS 2.1 and eMMC 5.1 storage, as well as LPDDR4X RAM.
The Difference of its High-End Siblings
Most of the features of Exynos 880 are similar to its high-end siblings, including storage and speed. But the support of the camera is what makes it special.
Samsung Exynos 880 SoC can accommodate either a 64MP main camera or dual 20MP camera setup. Whereas the 980 can accommodate up to 108MP main cameras.
Requires up to 30fps of 4K video recording. And it also offers playback for HEVC, H.264, and VP9 codecs.
And the other thing that is lacking is a higher resolution screen as Exynos 880 supports screen up to FHD+ or 2520 x 1080.
Given the variations, we can all accept that using a mid-range Android system with Samsung Exynos 880 SoC doesn’t seem to be a bad deal.
