This year, we will have a couple of flagship 5G smartphones and most of them will use 5nm and 6nm chips. Over the past three months, we have seen the release of multiple flagship smartphone processors all of which support 5G.
While we thought that this year’s flagship will strictly be for 5nm and 6nm chips, Qualcomm has a flagship processor that uses the 7nm manufacturing process (many will call this a pseudo flagship processor).
Interestingly, since November 2020, the three major chipmakers – Qualcomm, MediaTek, and Qualcomm have all released two flagship processor.
This time, the Exynos 1080 processor uses a new CPU architecture core. This chip uses the Samsung’s 5nm EUV process as well as the 1 + 3 + 4 architecture. It comes with one 2.8GHz A78 large core for peak performance, three 2.6GHz A78 cores for balanced processing, and four 2.0GHz A55 medium cores for efficiency. It also integrates millimeter-wave dual-mode 5G.
Exynos 1080 is Samsung’s first mobile processor using the most sophisticated 5nm EUV FinFET process technology. This chip uses Samsung’s latest 5G module and supports up to 5.1Gbps download speed.
In order to make mobile phone photos smarter, Exynos 1080 integrates artificial intelligence technology into the ISP, and the high-performance ISP supports up to 200MP sensors. It also supports up to 6 cameras.
Samsung recently held a global online conference where it released the 5nm chip Exynos 2100 smartphone processor. The Exynos 2100 is Samsung’s first mobile chipset with integrated 5G.
Moreover, the Exynos 2100 chip uses a three-cluster structure, including a 2.9GHz ARM Cortex-X1 super core, three Cortex-A78 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores. Samsung said that compared with previous products, the Exynos 2100 multi-core performance has increased by more than 30%.
In addition, the Exynos2100 uses ARM Mali-G78 GPU. The latter improves graphics performance by up to 40%. This chip also supports UFS 3.1 and UFS 2.1 storage. Plus, it can work with up to 200MP camera resolution. Currently, Samsung’s Exynos 2100 chip has begun mass production.]
As the latest product of the Snapdragon 8 series, Snapdragon 888 integrates Qualcomm’s third-generation 5G modem and radio frequency system – Snapdragon X60, which supports all major global millimeter wave and Sub-6GHz frequency bands.
The sixth-generation Qualcomm AI engine integrated on the Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform includes a newly designed Qualcomm Hexagon processor, with a performance of 26 trillion operations per second (26 TOPS).
In terms of games, it integrates the third-generation Snapdragon Elite Gaming. Also, Qualcomm claims that this chip brings the most significant performance improvement ever made by Qualcomm Adreno GPU.
In terms of camera performance, the Spectra ISP of Snapdragon 888 supports faster billion-pixel-level processing speeds. Users can process 2.7 billion pixels per second to take photos and videos.
MediaTek’s new flagship 5G SoC Dimensity 1200 was officially unveiled on January 20th. The chip uses TSMC’s 6-nanometer process. The CPU uses ARM’s latest A78 core with a frequency of 3.0GHz.
There are also 3 large A78 cores with a frequency of 2.6GHz and 4 small A55 cores. Officially, the Dimensity 1200 performance has increased by 22% and energy efficiency has increased by 25%.
The Dimensity 1200 integrates a new generation of 5G modem. Officially, this chip is the first SoC that supports 5G high-speed rail mode and 5G elevator mode. At the same time, the Dimensity 1200 adopts power-saving 5G UltraSave technology to ensure power consumption under the SA network.
theres a person who bought 1000 smartphones for students and theres a person who bought 1000 cool fever for a waste. such a big gap in intelligence. https://t.co/l5QmSXThVv— 🖤 (@imhaiqalazreen) January 23, 2021
