Samsung officially announced the Exynos 1280 chipset

Samsung has officially unveiled the Exynos 1280 chipset found in some of its recent Galaxy A-series mid-range smartphones like the Galaxy A33, Galaxy A53 and Galaxy M33.

The chip is built on Samsung’s 5nm EUV process and features an octa-core CPU made up of two Cortex-A78 performance cores alongside six Cortex-A55 power-efficient cores. The Graphics oriented tasks are handled by the Arm Mali-G68 GPU and you get both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G connectivity.

The new chip is optimized with Fused Multiply-Add (FMA) which should bring better power consumption and battery life. The onboard neural processing unit (NPU) brings AI functions like scene segmentation, real-time motion analysis and multi object surveillance.
