Samsung is reportedly working on a new Exynos chipset for entry-level smartphones. The South Korean company may soon launch Exynos 1280. As shared by tipster Ice universe, the chipset will be based on a 5nm processor. The upcoming chipset’s specifications, however, will be lower than the existing Exynos 1080.
There are no details about the chipset’s fabrication process, CPU cores, or GPU. As per a SamMobile report, the new chipset may come with 5G connectivity support though.
Most Samsung devices that are scheduled to launch next year are expected to run on Exynos processors. The company is reportedly working on at least two high-end Exynos processors, a mid-range chipset and one chipset for entry-level smartphones.
Samsung’s Exynos 2200 is expected to debut with the Galaxy S22 series. It is rumoured to be built on Samsung Foundry’s 4nm processor and may feature one Cortex-X2 CPU core, three Cortex-A710 CPU cores, four Cortex-A510 CPU cores, and the AMD Mobile Radeon GPU based in the RDNA2 architecture.
