A short while ago, a South Korean electronics giant Samsung announced the new flagman Exynos 990 chipset that will probably power the new Samsung Galaxy 11. The company is planning to manufacture the processor with its own 7nm EUV process.
Exynos will be more efficient because of a tri-cluster setup that consists of two of Sammy's custom cores, four Cortex-A55 efficiency cores, and two ARM Cortex-A76 high-performance cores.
The new chipset will also have a Mali-G77 GPU graphics processor that can enhance power efficiency and graphics performance.
Exynos will have no built-in 5G modem, which makes it well-suited for 4G devices. Even though the new processor is rather fast, you will still need to pair it with a modem, for instance, with the 5G Exynos Modem 5123 that was also announced the other day, in case if there’s a need to use it with a 5G device.
Furthermore, AI-based facial recognition system will be significantly improved thanks to a dual-core neural processing unit (NPU).
The display of the Exynos 990 chipset will have a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The resolution of the six cameras will reach up to 108 megapixels.
The above-mentioned 5G Exynos Modem 5123 is also made with the 7nm EUV process and can support sub-6GHz and mmWave airwaves along with 3G WCDMA, 2G GSM/CDMA, HSPA, TD-SCDMA, and 4G LTE.
The mass production of the Exynos 990 chipset and the 5G Exynos Modem 5123 will most likely begin later this year.
