Samsung officially unveiled the Exynos 7872 chipset, which was already used in the Meizu M6s.This chipset adds to the league of Exynos 5 series, which is used for mid-range premium smartphones.
The 7872 is built on a 14nm FinFET process. It’s a hexacore processor with two CPU in cluster form, it has two Cortex-A73 2.0GHz CPU + four Cortex-A53 1.6GHz CPU. Graphics are handled by the Mali-G71 GPU.
It is built on a 14nm process and features a hexacore CPU with two clusters: 2x Cortex-A73 (2.0GHz) + 4x Cortex-A53 (1.6Ghz). The graphics power is supplied by a Mali-G71 GPU.
The phone rocking the chipset can record 1080p video @120fps. The chipset supports 21.7MP front and rear camera modules. But no support for a dual camera system. It is capable of Smart Wide Dynamic Range photos using only a single range.
For security, the Chipset supports an Iris Scanner up to 8MP but will be only unlocked with only Flagship Devices.
This chipset too has some limitations, along with no support for a dual camera system. The chipset does not support 18:9 Full HD+ screens as the max resolution supported is 1920×1200. It can’t record a 2160p video
The Exynos 7872 has LTE Cat. 7 2CA modem (300Mbps downlink, 150Mbps uplink). It also contains Wi-Fi 802.11n dual-band, but no ac. It also has Bluetooth 5.0 support. The positioning system has support for GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo. FM radio is supported as well.
7872 supports LPDDR3 RAM type and eMMC 5.1 for built-in storage. It too supports SD 3.0 standard for expandable memory, which means it supports UHS-I microSD cards.
Samsung launched the Galaxy A8 (2018) phones with Exynos 7885 processor similar to 7872, manufactured with 14nm process and with the same cluster configuration. That one (7885) does support higher resolutions for all aspect ratios, but the A8 can’t record 2160p video either.
This chipset focuses more on battery saving and improving performance at the same time.
