Following the new Exynos 880 chipset, specifically designed for mid-range 5G smartphones, Exynos 850 was unveiled about two weeks ago and aims for budget-friendly smartphones such as the Galaxy A21.
The Exynos 850 brings support for powerful specs, designed for the affordable smartphone segment.
Samsung says the Exynos 850, integrates a 2GHz octa-core processor (ARM Cortex-55 core), a Mali-G52 GPU (graphics processing unit), and support for LPDD4X RAM and eMMC 5.1 storage. Although it has no 5G support, the Exynos 850 integrates Cat.7 LTE connectivity, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, FM Radio, and GNSS such as GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo.
Due to the manufacturer’s 8nm LPP process, Exynos 850 is thinner and there is no compromising on performance or energy efficiency.
The Exynos 850 offers support for a 21.7MP single camera or dual camera consisting of 16MP and 5MP sensors. The Samsung Galaxy A21s is a living proof that the chipset brings real value to Android low budget smartphones.
