Samsung Unveils Exynos 990 7NM SoC, 120HZ Refresh Rate, 108MP Camera


Author: GSMScore Team , Date : 28-October-2019
In a latest development, Samsung has unveiled the latest addition to its Exynos 900-family, the Exynos 990 chipset. The SoC uses 7nm EUV (Extreme Ultra Violet) lithography processing technology, the same as Exynos 9825 that powers the Galaxy Note10 Smartphone. The Exynos 990 chipset provides better battery management and efficiency. The tri-cluster CPU structure consists of two high-performance Cortex-A76 cores, two custom cores, and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores. It has embedded Arm Mali-G77 GPU. The company claims that it improves graphic performance or power efficiency by up to 20 percent.
Exynos 990 Chipset
 
The Exynos 990 chipset comes equipped with a dual-core neural processing unit (NPU) and digital signal processor (DSP). The combination is said to execute over ten-trillion operations (TOPs) per second. In the modem section, the Exynos 990 SoC sports 5G Exynos Modem 5123 modem, which supports a range of networks such as 5G’s sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrums to 2G GSM/CDMA, 3G WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, HSPA and 4G LTE.
 

The Exynos 990 SoC supports  LPDDR5 with data rates of up to 5,500 megabits per second (MB/s). Now this is a wider memory bandwidth than its predecessor with LPDDR4x. The chipset also supports 120Hz refresh-rate display driver alongside 10-bit video and HDR display support. The new Exynos SoC also supports up to six individual sensors with ultra-high resolution up to 108MP and is able to process three sensors simultaneously.

Tech Specs of the Latest Exynos 990 Chipset

Samsung Exynos 990 chipset also features DRAM encryption engine to protect data with faster processing speed. There’s also an Integrated secure element (iSE) layer that stores and handles personal data separately from the OS environment

The latest Exynos 990 chipset and Exynos Modem 5123 are expected to begin mass production by the end of this year. So it's most likely that these new Exynos 990 will feature in Samsung's next flagship (the Galaxy S11 maybe?) sometime in couple months.
