After Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G, 768G and MediaTek’s Dimensity 820 5G chipsets, the Korean giant is here with its mid-range 5G SoC. The newly unveiled Samsung Exynos 880 5G SoC is built on an 8nm FinFET process with an integrated 5G modem with sub-6GHz signal support. The new chipset hosts Mali-G76 GPU for advanced graphics while maintaining power efficiency.
The Exynos 880 5G SoC features an octa-core processor featuring two A77 cores at 2GHz and six small A55 cores at 1.8GHz. It supports up to triple-camera setups with a 64MP primary and two 20 MP secondary lenses supporting 4K video recording at 30 fps, 4k decoding /encoding using H.265, H.264, and VP9 codecs.
It can throttle 5G connectivity with downlink speeds of 2.55Gbps and upload speeds of 1.28Gbps. However, it can be used with 2G to 4G LTE networks without any issue.
The presence of ARM Mali-G76 MP5 GPU will bring faster games loading times and faster framerates. It even supports neural processing unit for better AI.
Exynos 880 supports LPDDR4x RAM, UFS 2.1 , eMMC 5.1 flash storage. Moreover, you will get Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi 5, FM Radio, GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo, and USB Type-C port support. The Exynos 880 features a 4-mode GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receiver that supports GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo.
Samsung’s new Exynos 880 is already being manufactured these days for powering the Vivo Y70s smartphone.
