Samsung's Exynos 980 SoC Has An Integrated 5G Modem

Samsung launches 5G integrated Exynos 980 SoC

The company says that with the launch of the new 5G-integrated chipset, it aims to make 5G more accessible to a wide range of users.

Today, the Korean manufacturer made a step forward and introduced its first 5G-integrated mobile chipset and it is called Exynos 980.

When looking at a 5G symbol everyone wants to know just how fast things can get.

The new modem can support gigabit download speeds in 4G LTE (Cat.16) and up to 2.55Gbps in sub-6GHz 5G.

August Manufacturing ISM Report on Business; PMI at 49.1%
Comments by the ISM's panel of purchasing executives "reflect a notable decrease in business confidence", the institute said . On Sunday, the US started charging a 15% tariff on about $112 billion of Chinese products.

Built on 8-nanometer FinFET technology, the newly unveiled SoC pairs an octa-core CPU composed of two high-performance Cortex-A77 cores and six energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores with a top-of-the-line Mali-G76 GPU to try to achieve the ideal balance between power and affordability.

This is the first time Samsung has opted for a three numeral scheme in its Exynos line-up which is certainly bound to be a bit confusing at the beginning, certainly also because of similarities in the naming to the Kirin 980. While in dual connectivity the chipset can provide a data transfer rate of 3.55Gbps.

Looking at the numbers, the mobile processor supports 2G to 5G networks. This SoC also supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard IEEE 802.11ax. The biggest benefit would be a reduction in cost for 5G smartphones which should spur adoption among consumers with a lower budget. Rather than being coupled with a separate 5G modem, the 5G-enabled Exynos 980 not only helps reduce power consumption but also increase the space efficiency within a device. So you can expect it to bring down the entry price point of Samsung's 5G devices. The NPU adds enhancements to applications such as secure user authentication, content filtering, mixed reality, intelligent camera, and more. There's also support for the Samsung-backed HDR10 and encoding and decoding of 4K video at up to 120fps.

The Exynos 980's GPU, Mali G76, is a significant improvement over earlier versions-roughly twice as fast as the Mali G71 used in earlier Samsung devices such as the Galaxy S8. Current real-world speed tests show 5G FR1 speeds of 400Mbps to 600Mbps.
