Samsung Exynos 7570 14nm SoC for affordable smartphones enters mass production
Samsung announced it has begun producing a new mobile application processor, the Exynos 7 Quad 7570. The chipset is built on 14nm process technology and is designed for budget smartphones and Internet Of Things devices. It also happens to be the first Exynos chip to fully integrate a Cat. 4 LTE 2CA modem with connectivity standards such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Frequency Modulation, and global navigation satellite system (GNSS).
According to Samsung, the Exynos 7570 will let more consumers experience the performance benefits of the 14nm FinFET process in affordable devices. This is also the first chip in its class made on said process, which makes it highly power-efficient. Compared to its 28nm predecessor, the Exynos 7570 is 20% smaller and delivers 70% improvements in CPU performance and 30% improvements in power efficiency, in addition to featuring a fully integrated modem.
Some of the features supported by the chip include resolutions up to 720p, recording and playback of 1080p resolution videos, and an improved image signal processor for up to 8MP/13MP front and back cameras.
Samsung hasn't announced when the SoC will be shipping in actual devices, but with the chip in mass production, it's highly probable that Exynos 7570 smartphones will arrive by the third or fourth quarter of the year.
