The Samsung Exynos 7 Octa 7870 is the first 14 nm FinFET chip that aims the mid-range area of the market. According to Samsung, it uses 30 percent less power while providing the same level of performance as mobile processors that are built employing the 28 nm High-k Metal Gate technology.

Exynos 7 Octa 7870 features eight Cortex-A53 cores, [email protected] fps video playback, a maximum resolution of 1,920X1,200 pixels, supports up to 16 MP cameras, and integrates a GNSS solution as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
