Samsung announces new 14-Nanometer Exynos Processor for next-generation mid-range smartphones

Samsung today announced the newest member of its Exynos 7 Octa processor line-up, the Exynos 7 Octa 7870. Using the company’s most advanced 14-nanometer (nm) FinFET process technology, the Exynos 7 Octa 7870 is designed for next-generation mid-range smartphones and other mobile devices. The Exynos 7 Octa 7870 is equipped with eight 1.6GHz Cortex-A53 cores and LTE Cat.6 2CA Modem that supports 300Mbps downlink speed and FDD-TDD joint carrier aggregation for better network flexibility. In terms of multimedia functionalities, the processor supports 1080p 60fps video playback and WUXGA (1920×1200) display resolution.
The new Exynos 7 Octa 7870 processor’s image signal processor (ISP) delivers high resolution images – up to 16 megapixels for both rear and front cameras, or 8Mp each in dual camera mode. In addition, it integrates GNSS solution that delivers fast time-to-first-fix (TTFF) feature, which enables a robust mobile experience based on more accurate and rapidly transitioning location based services. The new Exynos 7 Octa 7870 processor consumes over 30 percent less power than mobile SoCs built with 28nm High-k Metal Gate process technology at the same performance level. The Exynos 7 Octa 7870 will be in mass production in the first quarter of 2016.
