The first smartphones equipped with a new chipset, we can see on the market in the first quarter of 2020.
The Exynos 980 chipset is based on an 8-nm process technology. It consists of two powerful Cortex-A77 cores and six more energy efficient Cortex-A55 cores. For graphics processing, the Mali G76 MP5 video accelerator is responsible.
The novelty was the first Samsung chipset with an integrated 5G modem. In addition, the chip includes a neural coprocessor (NPU), an advanced image processing chip (ISP), supports Wi-Fi 6 technology and camera modules with a resolution of up to 108 MP.
Mass production of Exynos 980 starts at the end of this year. This means that the first devices with a new chipset should be expected in early 2020.
