Competition with Intel
Samsung would offer the processor with its Galaxy S series notebooks. The notebooks haven’t been sold to India so far. With the use of an Exynos processor for PCs, Samsung can cut down the material cost and pass it on to the consumers. This could be a potential threat for the developments happening in Intel.
The PC market could benefit from some competition. Qualcomm has also been using its Snapdragon series for connected PCs. And with Exynos jumping in, it’ll be good to have options in the market. And whenever the Exynos CPU comes out, it is expected that to be paired with AMD Radeon GPU inside the system.
Exynos 850 SoC
The company announced a new Exynos chipset for entry level phones. The4 chipset is built on the 8nm LPP processes and it packs eight Cortex-A55 crores. These have a maximum frequency of 2.0 GHz and do not support 5G networks. The chipset also has the ARM Mali-G52 GPU and supports LDDR4x RAM and eMMC 5.1 storage.
It also supports upto 21.7 megapixel cameras on both the front and rear. If a dual camera set up is to be implemented in an Exynos 850-bearing phone, the support drops to 16 megapixel plus 5 megapixel. Speaking of connectivity, the Samsung Exynos 850 supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0.
