Samsung Announces New Exynos 1280 SoC

We've said it before, and the Samsung Exynos 1280 is another example: the high-end and top-of-the-line set the norm in terms of performance, but they're not at the bottom of the sector.

In actuality, it is the mid-and upper-level segments of the entry-level range that support a million-dollar business and keep a substantial portion of the population connected. As a result, SoCs like the one demonstrated by Samsung is critical in the field.

Furthermore, the evolution of integrated for the mid-range is primarily responsible for bringing to the general public everything that was previously seen debut in the high-end.

5G connection is a clear example of this, and one to which the Exynos 1280 contributes. Let us recall that, not long ago, it was the exclusive domain of the wealthy, but that for some time now, cellphones with 5G connectivity have been made available to people of all income levels.

We may expect this Exynos 1280 to power many models in Samsung's A-range, but we also hope to see it in handsets from other manufacturers, because in the absence of knowing its pricing, its features fit like a glove in what many customers of the middle range are looking for.

Let us look at its specifications:

As you can see, we are dealing with a well-balanced SoC. It contains a CPU comprised of eight cores, two ARM Cortex-A78 performance cores with a maximum speed of 2.4 gigahertz, and another six ARM Cortex-A55 cores with a maximum speed of two gigahertz.

The processor is paired with an Arm Mali-G68 GPU and supports LPDDR4x RAM and UFS v2.2 storage.

In terms of connectivity, the Samsung Exynos 1280 does not disappoint. In terms of the phone, as previously said, it supports 5G NR Sub-6GHz and 5G NR mmWave, which are supplemented by 4G-LTE.

It also includes 802.11ac MIMO WiFi with support for the 2.4 and 5 gigahertz bands, as well as Bluetooth 5.2. Any mid-range smartphone will be well served by this combination.

Other notable features of the Samsung Exynos 1280 include its own artificial intelligence engine, which according to Samsung has a capacity of up to 4.3 billion instructions per second, as well as support for cameras up to 108 megapixels and video recording at up to 32 megapixels at 30 frames per second.
