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.

Garbage. In 2017, even the low end phones should record in 4k and have CPU and GPU grunt equal to the 7420 used in the S6. Android SoCs are just going downhill for the past 2-3 years while apple doesn't seem to stop.

Because Apple only produces high end phones.

Well, high end android SoCs are nothing to write home about either.

On Qualcomm's sid. The Exynos 8 Octa is without a doubt a class-leading solution.

Not really, E8890 GPU performance is slightly worse than Snapdragon 820 and it throttles more despite being kinder on battery life (probably a big part of why it's kinder on battery life). CPU performance is split, Single-core for SN820 and multi-core E8890. In terms of graphics performance they're behind the Pixel C and even further behind the latest iPad's. Graphics is somewhat more important on high resolution tablets.

Exynos 8 was well and good in Q1, but the A10 will most likely destroy it. And that's the best android chip till next 7-8 months.

Apple A10 will nowhere near destroy the E8890! A10 is a slight upgrade over the A9.

17. sarcastic_nerd unregistered

Well, the A9 already beats the 8890 in single threaded workloads and GPU performance. The only thing 8890 has going for it is the efficiency and the multi-core performance.

I really don't know who to blame, the chips themselves or the badly optimized OS.

May be u should get a fruit product and shut up

It's ok, their sales will reflect the wants and needs of the consumer. If Samsung's SOC is crap, there is Qualcomm, Mediatek and Intel. Especially when Intel cleared a major hurdle on licensing to manufacture ARM SOC.

BTW Intel isn't gonna be design phone SoCs The are just going to be fabbing SoCs designed by LG and others (with IP from ARM) That being said, its still exciting to see SoCs from Intel's 10nm process Especially since ARMs core designs are currently #1 on the Android side Looking forward to the A73 and G71 (as well as more custom designs from Qualcomm and Samsung)

They all suck with their midrange SoCs. 650 and 652 are good but Qualcomm gimps them with 2012 grade GPU.

adreno 510 is fantastic, there are sub $150 phones with this gpu.

Looks like low end trash, I wonder what production cost for this is vs 7420? Why not just refine 7420 and reduce production cost? they could even reduce the clockspeeds. The cost of 7420 was $29 just over a year ago, it's all about margins I guess.

Which of Samsung's 14nm processes is this manufactured from? LPP or their newer cheaper one?
