Mid-range Samsung Exynos 7872 chipset is being prepped?
From China today comes word that Samsung is working on a new mid-range chipset named the Samsung Exynos 7872. The SoC carries a hexa-core CPU with two energy sipping Cortex-A53 cores and two power guzzling high performance Cortex-A73 cores. The Exynos 7872 will be built using Samsung’s 14nm LPP (Low Power Plus) fabrication technology. This reduces the size of the die allowing for a more power efficient chip that doesn't get too hot (we're looking at you, Snapdragon 810).
The Mali-T830 MP2 GPU will be on board, and an integrated modem will be part of the chipset which should improve connectivity and reduce power usage. Overall, the new chipset improves CPU performance by 70 % compared to the previous line of Exynos chips built using the 28nm process. The new SoC will be 30% more energy efficient.

The Exynos 7872 could be released this coming October. We could see them inside the Samsung Galaxy A or Samsung Galaxy C series that would be released around the same time, later this year.
