Strangely enough, the South Korean tech giant, Samsung has already started shipping new smartphone phones with its new Exynos 1280 chipset, including the Galaxy A53, A33 and M33 without saying a word about its chipset. However, this changes now, as Samsung finally revealed more details about its new Octa-Core, Sub-6GHz 5G chipset on Thursday.
Samsung Exynos 1280 Specifications
The new eight-core chipset which will be built on Samsung’s 5nm EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet) lithography process features two Cortex-A78 performance cores and six Cortex-A55 power-efficient cores paired with an Arm Mali-G68 GPU. This allows the chipset to support an FHD+ display running 120Hz as well as LPDDR4x memory and UFS 2.2 storage.
As far as the camera performance is concerned, the new Exynos 1280 chipset features an improved image signal processor (ISP) that offers support for up to 108-megapixel primary and three 16-megapixel secondary image sensors. Additionally, with this new chipset, Samsung has also added support for multi-frame image processing and electronic image stabilization (EIS) which results in clearer and less noisy images as well as 4K 30fps videos.
Furthermore, the Samsung Exynos 1280 also packs a dedicated neural processing unit (NPU) that brings new AI functions like scene segmentation, real-time motion analysis and multi-object surveillance.
Samsung Exynos 1280 Vs Qualcomm Snapdragon 695
That said, we expect the Exynos 1280 to go head to head against Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 695 chipset that features the same two Cortex-A78 performance cores and six Cortex-A55 efficiency cores running at slightly lower clock speeds.
Last but not the least, as both the chipsets are already available in the market, we can easily compare them using existing benchmarks, which reveal that the Exynos 1280 offers around 4% more single-core performance than the Snapdragon 695. Meanwhile, on the contrary, the latter offers around 7% faster multi-core performance than the former.
Whatever the case is, it should be noted that benchmarks aren’t that accurate compared to real-world performance.
