We have known that Samsung has its own department of smartphone chipset manufacturing and while the company does use Qualcomm Snapdragon processors in other parts of the world, its Exynos chipset is used in Asia including home country of South Korea. Talking about the Exynos processors, Samsung also gives you a full range of Exynos processors ranging from low-end, mid-end as well as high-end and flagship processor which was seen on the Galaxy S20. However, we have seen that their Exynos processors are criticized compared to others and we have also heard that they are scaling down the production.
It is likely that we might not see Exynos processors on any variant of Samsung’s flagship devices in the future. But that doesn’t mean we will not see it on mid-range smartphones as well. Because Samsung has just launched a new chipset geared for mid-range devices which is named as the Exynos 880. Since we are in 2020, the first thing that we are going to find on every new device and chipset is 5G support. It is the most-hyped thing right now in the world and companies are pushing for giving 5G support on their devices.
Apart from that, gaming is another area of focus for chipset makers since people are buying their phones to play high-end games and if the phone can’t do so, they are not likely to buy them. So Samsung says that its latest Exynos 880 comes with improved gaming performance and this is because the processor has been boosted.
This processor from Samsung also supports a 64MP primary camera which means we are likely to see at least one mid-range device with such a camera. But if we want to have a dual-camera setup, it supports 20MP+20MP along with 4K video recording limited at 30 frames per second right now.
