Exynos 1280 goes official!
The Exynos 1280 chipset is designed for mid-range Android smartphones and is based on Samsung’s 5nm fabrication node. It’s an eight-core CPU architecture-based chipset with 2X ARM Cortex A78 performance cores clocked at 2.4GHz and 6X Cortex A55 power efficiency cores clocked at 2.0GHz. It has an ARM Mali-G68 GPU for graphically intensive tasks. It is based on a new System on Chip that includes a Fused Multiply-Add (FMA) that provides increased efficiency and battery life. A neural processing unit is built into the device. Up to LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.2 storage are supported by the SoC.
The chipset’s NPU will provide AI functions for the cameras. It supports displays with resolutions up to FHD+ and refresh rates as high as 120Hz. The manufacturer has included support for a 108MP camera as well as three additional sensors with up to 16MP resolution. Multi-frame image processing for clearer images with less noise, video recording support up to 4K resolution and 30FPS, and Electronic Image Stabilization is also new features from Samsung.
