Despite the fact that the Samsung Galaxy A33 5G and A53 5G smartphones are already on sale, only now the Korean giant has completely declassified the new Exynos 1280 SoC underlying the new products.
So, the configuration of the new platform includes a CPU with two Cortex-A78 cores with a frequency of up to 2.4 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores with a frequency of up to 2 GHz. There is also a Mali-G68 GPU, but with an unknown number of cores.
The single-chip system supports Bluetooth 5.2, FM Radio Rx, not the latest LPDDR4x and UFS 2.2 memory, as well as Wi-Fi 5. In addition, it is worth highlighting support for 108 MP cameras, the ability to record 4K video at 30 fps and support for screens Full HD+ at 120Hz frame rate. Exynos 1280 is manufactured using a 5 nm process technology.
That is, in general, this is a typical average solution, which can be distinguished by a modern technical process, the lack of support for Wi-Fi 6 and support for not the most modern memory standards. At the same time, the competing Snapdragon 778G and Dimensity 900/920 SoCs have been on the market for a relatively long time, that is, the Exynos 1280 is not in the most advantageous position in this sense.
