Samsung begins production of the low-end Exynos 7570 SoC
Earlier today, Samsung has unveiled that mass production of its 14-nanometer Exynos 7 Quad 7570 chip has begun. This new processor targets both the budget smartphone market and various IoT devices.
According to Samsung Electronics, the Exynos 7570 SoC is "the first Exynos processor to fully integrate a Cat.4 LTE 2CA modem and connectivity solutions including WiFi, Bluetooth, frequency modulation (FM) and global navigation satellite system (GNSS) in one chip." The first 14 nm FinFET chip in its class, the Exynos 7570 arrives less than a year after Samsung introduced this technology with its premium processors.
The same source reveals that the new chip is 20 percent more compact than its 28 nm-built predecessor, offering a performance increase of 70 percent, as well as a 30 percent increase in efficiency. The highest screen resolution supported is WXGA, while the ISP can handle up to 8 MP/13 MP cameras. We have no information about the first devices to feature the Exynos 7570 yet, but we will get back to it as soon as we find out anything new.
