Aside from making phones, Korean juggernaut Samsung also makes a whole host of components for phones, which include displays, memory and the processors. In fact, the company’s own Exynos 8890 octa-core processor powers their current crop of flagships, namely the Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Today the company has announced their newest processor family built on the 14nm process, the Exynos 7570. The new chipset sports a quad-core processor that has four energy efficient Cortex-A53 cores, built mainly for the budget segment of the market. While there’s already a glut of quad-core chipsets in the market already, Samsung’s offering is built on the smaller 14nm process compared to the 28nm that most other quad-core processors.
This allowed the company to shrink the total chip size by 20%. The new manufacturing process also means better power efficiency and performance – Samsung says that the Exynos 7570 chipset is 70 faster and 30 percent more power efficient compared to a quad-core processor built on the 28nm process. Samsung’s also proud of the fact that the new chipset has an integrated Cat. 4 LTE 2CA modem, along with the usual wireless goodies like WiFi, Bluetooth and GNSS.
No word yet what phone will have first dips on the new processor, but it won’t take long until we see a new device sporting Exynos 7570 digs.
