Samsung has quietly listed a new in-house SoC, the Exynos 880, on its official website. And from the looks of it, the Exynos 880 appears to be a watered-down version of the Exynos 980 chip, with the key trade-offs being made in the camera capabilities department as well as hardware compatibility.
The Exynos 880 is based on the 8nm FinFET process and has a 2+6 core architecture. There are two Cortex-A77 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz to do the heavy-lifting, while the six Cortex-A55 cores ticking at 1.8GHz are there to handle less demanding tasks. The Mali-G76 MP5 GPU handles graphics, and there is an integrated NPU as well.
Samsung’s new mid-range Exynos chip supports a single camera of up to 64MP resolution, or up to 20MP+20MP dual rear camera setup. Video recording is capped at 4K 30fps, while wireless connectivity will be handled by Bluetooth 5.0 and sub-6GHz 5G. Samsung is yet to announce which of its upcoming phones will be powered by the Exynos 880 chip, but we likely won’t have to wait much longer.
