The Exynos range of chipsets are manufactured in-house by Samsung and have been noted for their performances. This is the same chipset that we spotted recently on the Meizu M6S. Built on a 14nM process, the chipset promises to deliver greater performances with lower power consumption. This latest chipset is part of the Exynos 5 series. It is built on the 14-nanometer process and is also based on the 14 LPP (an acronym of Low Power Plus) technology. Onboard is the hexa-core CPU (2x 2.0GHz + 4x 1.6GHz) working in tandem with the Mali G71 GPU. Incidentally, the Exynos 7872 was first unveiled in June of 2017. This new entry is one of the decidedly mid-range chipsets and they also support the Category 7 of the LTE modem. The chipsets can thus reach a maximum downloading speed of around 300Mbps alongside an uploading speed of 150Mbps. These modems also have support for the existing 4G network with options for dual-band WiFi 802.11n and the latest Bluetooth 5.0. These days, the full-screen display along with an aspect ratio of 18:9, is trending. It is no surprise, then, that the latest Samsung Exynos 7872 also has support for the Full HD+ display with a maximum screen resolution of a very neat 1920×1200 pixels. As far as the memory is concerned, onboard is LPDDR3 of RAM, alongside eMMC 5.1 for built-in storage and the SD 3.0 for expandable storage via the normally used microSD cards. The new Samsung Exynos 7872 chipset The Samsung Exynos 7872 will also boast improved Image Signal Processor (ISP) and Multi-Format Codec (MFC) which will make for better image and video quality. As far as imaging capacities are concerned, we are looking at support for a 21.7-megapixel sensor for both the rear and the front cameras. Lastly, this new chipset will have support for an iris camera sensor with up to 8-megapixel for better security and authentication. One more thing: it also has MFC support for encoding and decoding HQ Full HD video at an astounding 120 frames per second.
