Samsung Exynos 1280 SoC features
As mentioned earlier, the new Samsung chipset is built on 5nm EUV technology and comes with an octa-core CPU that has two Cortex-A78 performance cores clocked at 2.4Ghz and six Cortex-A55 power-efficient cores clocked at 2.0GHz. As for the GPU, the chipset comes with Arm Mali-G68 and sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G connectivity.
Additionally, it offers support for a 108MP camera, 16MP triple camera setup, and 4K video recording. As for the display, Samsung reveals that it supports FHD+ display that offers a 120Hz refresh rate.
The chipset is produced by Samsung Foundry with the help of Fused Multiply-Add (FMA) technology. This technology boosts the power consumption and battery efficiency of the chipset. With multi-frame image processing, Samsung Exynos 1280 SoC produces clearer images with less noise and sharp details.
According to Samsung, the chipset also comes with a neural processing unit (NPU) that brings AI functions like scene segmentation, real-time motion analysis and multi-object surveillance.
