Earlier this week we discovered Samsung's new Exynos 880 chip, which is aimed directly at medium-range smartphones with 5G support. Samsung has now added another internal SoC called Exynos 850 to its portfolio. According to the technical data, it will likely appear in the lower mid-range smartphones of the Galaxy A series and M series in the foreseeable future.
The Exynos 850 (model no. S5E3830) is manufactured in the 8 nm process and has two clusters of Cortex-A55 cores, while the graphics are taken over by the Mali G52 GPU. The chip offers support for panels with a resolution of up to FHD +, eMMC 5.1 memory and LPDDR4x RAM modules.
As with the cameras, the Exynos 850 can perform heavy lifting for a single 21.7 megapixel camera or dual camera setup using a combined 16MP + 5MP design. It also provides support for video encoding and decoding at FHD resolution with a maximum frame rate of 60 fps. The product status is listed as "mass production", which means that it will appear on commercial phones soon.
