Samsung intros Exynos 5 (7872) series chipsets for mid-range smartphones
Samsung has just announced its new lineup of Exynos 5 chipsets, which will power some of the mid-range smartphones coming in 2018. Ironically, the first handset to be equipped with an Exynos 5 series chip is the Meizu M6s, a middle-class device made official earlier today.

The Exynos 7872 chipset accommodates six cores: 2x Cortex-A73 CPUs clocked at 2GHz and 4x Cortex-A53 CPUs clocked at 1.6GHz. Also, the chip comes with a Mali-G71MP1 graphics processing unit and an LTE Cat.7 modem (300Mbps download, 150Mbps upload).

Samsung doesn't mention anything about dual-camera support, but its chipset does come with support for 21.7-megapixel front and rear cameras. The chipset doesn't offer 2160p video capture, but phones powered by Exynos 5 will be capable of full HD 120fps encoding and decoding.

The Exynos 5 series (7872) chip is manufactured on a 14nm process and promises single core performance increased by two folds when compared to its predecessor.

Meizu m6s uses exynos 7872 , EOMs are slowing getting mid-range exynos socs in their divices .... These exynos socs got an amazing battery life .... Some days I don't recharge my exynos j7 pro for three days ..

S660 is better in comparison.

If you can't go big, go home...why bother with a $100 margin/phone or tablet?

You sure that’s a Mali G71 “MP1”? Just 1 core??

The 7885 on the A8 and A8+ is a G71 MP2 so I'm guessing that this new 7872 indeed comes with only 1 core, Samsung dropped the ball on the GPUs for these new SoCs. A simplier Mediatek P23 comes with the G71 MP2 too.

That’s my point too. Wanted to mention the P23. Why can’t Samsung be a little less greedy. They aren’t Apple who can put 3 cores in the A11 Bionic and make it rip through all heavy-duty tasks (sure G71 is slower but you should get my point).

G71MP1 ruined it all.
