Samsung announces Exynos 990 as flagship processor; supports 100MP, 5G ready @ 7.35Gbps!

Just in today, Samsung has introduced their newest smartphone processor, the Exynos 990 SoC. It is different from Exynos 980 as it doesn’t comes with integrated with 5G modem. The Exynos 990 relies on Exynos Modem 5123 to achieve 5G connectivity.

The Exynos 990 delivers an incredible network experience. The Exynos Modem 5123 supports ultra-high-speed download speeds of up to 7.35 Gbps and sub-6 GHz offer download speeds of up to 5.1 Gbps. With 4G LTE, it can achieve 3Gbps downlink speed and 422Mbps uplink.

It is worth noting that Exynos Modem 5123 is built on the advanced 7nm EUV process and has many energy-saving optimizations. The 5G network has low power consumption that offers longer battery life.

In terms of specifications, Exynos 990 is based on Samsung’s latest 7nm process technology. It uses dual-core fifth-generation Samsung custom high-performance core, dual-core Cortex A76 core and quad-core Cortex-A55 core, and dual-core NPU to enhance AI computing power. GPU is ARM. The new generation Mali-G77 MP11 is 20% more energy efficient than the Exynos 9820 Mali-G77 MP12.

At the same time, the Exynos 990 platform can manage up to six camera components. It can use three lenses at the same time. A single lens supports up to 100 million pixels (Galaxy S11 uses 100 megapixels?) or two 24.8 megapixel lenses at the same time. Furthermore it supports LPDDR5 memory too!

It is also possible for it to be first available on Galaxy S11!
