Samsung Exynos 850 is the new processor meant for some budget-friendly smartphones. The first smartphone to carry this new chipset is the Galaxy A21s that was launched earlier last month but at the time of launch, Samsung didn’t reveal any details of its new chipset. Now, Samsung has quietly listed the processor with some key details on its official website.
The sleuths over at SamMobile were quick to take a glance over the specifications that Exynos 850 has to offer. According to what is listed, the Exynos 850 (S5E3830) processor is built on 8nm design and features eight Cortex-A55 CPU cores. This makes it a power-efficient processor and phones utilizing this new processor may not even need larger battery capacity. But Galaxy A21s still comes with a good 5,000mAh battery to cover more hours or even days.
The lightweight Cortex-A55 cores in the Exynos 850 processor are clocked at 2Ghz. It packs a Mali-G52 GPU but there is no NPU support as found on other Exynos chipsets. The new chip also gets support for Full HD Plus support. It also supports dual 16MP/5MP and 1080p/60fps video recording. But it should be noted that Samsung Galaxy A21s has a 48MP main camera anyway. It supports 21.7MP single shooters on the front or the rear. It also gains MMC 5.1 support and Wi-Fi/ Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
The new Exynos 850 lacks 5G connectivity but features an integrated LTE model, GPS, GLONASS, dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, and FM Radio.
We expect to see more Exynos 850-powered phones with some low-end specs at a reasonable price.
