Samsung Exynos 1280

The Samsung Exynos 1280 is a midrange system on a chip (SoC) for smartphones and tablets. It was announced in early 2022 and is used in the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G. The CPU part integrates two clusters, a performance cluster with two ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 2.4 GHz and an efficiency cluster with six small ARM Cortex-A55 cores at up to 2 GHz. The integrated memory controller supports LPDDR4x.

Furthermore, the chip integrates an ISP for cameras with up to 108 MPixel. The integrated ARM Mali G68 MC4 supports displays with up to 1080p and 120Hz.

One of the main features is the integrated 5G modem that supports Sub-6GHz (2550/1280 Mbps), mmWave (1840/920 Mbps), and LTE Cat 18 (1200/200 Mbps). WiFi 5 is the highest supported standard, as is Bluetooth 5.2.

The SoC is manufactured in the modern 5nm process at Samsung.
