Samsung Exynos 7904 mid-range SoC announced with an emphasis on the Indian market
Today, Samsung Electronics has announced its latest addition to the Exynos 7 Series SoCs: the new Samsung Exynos 7904. This SoC is targeted towards phones in the mid-range segment and is customized for the needs of the Indian consumer.
The Samsung Exynos 7904 is built on a 14-nm process, and is equipped with 2x Cortex-A73 cores clocked @ 1.8 GHz, alongside 6x Cortex-A53 cores clocked @ 1.6GHz. The Cortex-A73 cores work as the “big core” within the SoC to deliver fast single-core performance that is expected out of a mid-range SoC, while the Cortex-A53 cores work in harmony to perform routine tasks with lower power consumption. The embedded LTE modem in the Exynos 7904 supports Cat.12 3-carrier aggregation for 600Mbps downlink speed.
“Samsung is committed to bringing world-class innovative technologies for the consumers. With smartphones driving the digital revolution, Indian market has great potential. The Exynos 7 Series 7904 will enable advanced mobile experiences in a broader range of devices with triple-camera support, powerful performance and connectivity.”
The Exynos 7904’s Image Signal Processor (ISP) supports up to 32MP in single-camera resolution, and also has support for an advanced triple-camera setup for high-resolution imaging and other features such as wide-angle shots and bokehs. The mobile processor also supports FHD video capture at 120fps or UHD (4K) video capture at 30fps. The processor also supports FHD+ displays, which should be enough to serve needs in the mid-range in the near future.
The Exynos 7 Series 7904 is currently in mass production. We expect to hear more about Exynos 7904 devices later this year.
The Exynos 7904 sounds perfectly suited for future devices in Samsung’s A-series as the included Cortex-A73 cores pack enough of a punch to keep the average consumer satisfied. Depending on its pricing, Samsung could also possibly consider it for the higher variants in future M-series devices.
