Samsung has just announced the Exynos 880, a 5G mobile chipset aimed squarely at midrange phones.

Capable of supporting sub-6GHz bands, the Exynos 880 touts an upload speed of up to 1.28Gbps and a download speed of 2.55Gbps that goes up to 3.55Gbps when simultaneous 5G and LTE connections are established.

To power on-device AI, the Exynos 880 has a built-in neural processing unit for machine learning and a digital signal processor. Both share a controller and have access to the main system memory for faster and more efficient AI processing.

Processor-wise, the Exynos 880 packs an octa-core CPU that has two ARM Cortex-A77 cores running at 2.0GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores running at 1.8GHz. The GPU is an ARM Mali-G76 MP5.

The chipset also boasts of an advanced image signal processor that supports up to five individual sensors and is able to process three sensors at the same time. The maximum resolution it can handle in a single-sensor setup is 64 megapixels; for a dual-lens camera, each sensor can be 20MP.

The Exynos 880 also supports HEVC, H.264 and VP9 codecs and 4K @ 30fps video recording and playback (yup, no 4K/60 or 120). As for screen support, it tops out at a Full HD+ resolution (2,520 x 1,080).
