Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 5430 20nm SoC coming soon
Samsung has announced new Exynos 5 Octa 5430. This is the first Samsung chip to use 20nm HKMG process technology based on ARM big.LITTLE technology. Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 5430 has four Cortex A15 chips clocked at 1.5 GHz and four Cortex A7 chips running at 1.3 GHz. The new processor is based on the 20 nm low-power High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) process technology, it lowers the power consumption by up to 25%, compared with 28nm process node, says the company.
The Samsung Alpha is powered by octa-core Exynos 5433 processor that allows it to outperform older devices like the Galaxy Note 3 or Galaxy S4. The other features which could expect 4.8-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, 12 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of non-expandable internal memory. This handset has Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
The Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 5430 features as the same as quad-core Cortex A15/quad-core Cortex A7 configuration used by Samsung in earlier Exynos octa-core processors. This time around, the Cortex A15 cores are clocked at 1.8GHz with the Cortex A7 cores at 1.3GHz. The Mali T628MP6 GPU used on the Exynos 5430 is same as that on the Exynos 5422.
The sources also said that the Samsung future Exynos MODAP therefore integrates a 4G LTE modem Class 4 up to 150 Mb/s in reception, but not a 4G+ LTE modem Advanced. This has support for WQHD (2560 x 1440) and WQXGA (2560 x 1600), by using hibernation display and Mobile Image compression (MIC) that compresses the data by half when transferring pictures and multimedia content from the AP to display. It has Multi Format Codec (MFC) including H.265(HEVC) decoder to experience videos better on UHD TVs through HDMI interface.
