Samsung unveiled the Exynos 7570 chipset back in August last year to cater the needs of entry-level smartphones. It looks like the chipset is all set to power low-end phones now, as it’s been spotted on Bluetooth SIG for certification, which basically is our good old hint that the equipment is nearing production.
The Exynos 7570 chipset is built on highly power efficient 14nm FinFET technology. It’s worth mentioning that Samsung’s Exynos 7570 is one of the first few chipsets to have been built on the 14nm node in the entry level segment.
It has four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.4GHz paired with Mali T720 GPU which takes care of graphics. Samsung claims that the SoC will “improve the performance up to 70% and reduces power consumption up to 30%,” in comparison to its predecessor which was built on 28nm.
The imaging department also sees an improvement with support for up to 13MP camera on the back, up to 8MP front-facing camera and 1080p video recording capabilities. As for the display, the chipset supports resolutions of up to 1280 x 800 pixels. In terms of connectivity, the chipset offers support to Cat. 4 LTE 2CA modem, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, FM Radio, and GPS.
The South Korean giant earlier this month unveiled the Xcover 4, the successor to the rugged Xcover 3 which is powered by the Exynos 7570 chipset. We can expect more devices to be launched with the chipset soon.
