A month ago Samsung presented its new high-end processor, present in the Galaxy Note 10, the Exynos 9825. The Korean firm now renews its range of processors, with a model called to have great importance. Since the firm we leave with its first processor with integrated 5G. This is Exynos 980, which is already official.
This range of Samsung processors is driven in this way with an important launch. Exynos 980 is the first proprietary processor to have 5G, besides arriving with a series of important improvements as the Korean manufacturer has already shown in its presentation. A key moment for the company.
This processor is an evolution of the 9820, which is present in the Galaxy S10. Exynos 980 combines several cores to offer a lower energy consumption, in addition to being a powerful processor, with a great presence of artificial intelligence and that stands out for the presence of 5G. It arrives with a 5G modem integrated in the processor itself. Thanks to it, connections from Edge 2G to 5G networks can be enabled.

Specifications Exynos 980
Samsung has already shared the important details about this new processor. So we can already know what is expected of it in this regard. This Exynos 980 has the ability to connect to 5G networks below 6 Ghz. It also offers us a maximum download speed of 2.55 Gbps.
Another aspect of importance in it is that it comes with E-UTRA-NR Dual Connectivity activated. This is about network compatibility, which is possible thanks to the combination of 4G LTE 2CC and 5G. It has also been confirmed that this processor will have serial support for WiFi 6 networks. The most complete in this regard, as we can see. Samsung has revealed its specifications, Which are the following:
- CPU: 2 Cortex-A77 cores at a clock speed of 2.2 GHz and 6 Cortex-A55 cores at a clock speed of 1.8 GHz.
- GPU: ARM Mali G76 MP5
- Integrated NPU (Neural Processing Unit)
- Fabrication process: 8nm LPP FinFET
- Storage: UFS 2.1, eMMC 5.1
- Modem: 5G Sub 6, 5G LTE EN-DC, LTE Category 16, LTE Category 18
- Camera: 108 MP support in single camera configurations in dual configurations support 20 +20 MP
- Display stand: WQHD + 3360 × 1440 pixels
- Memory: LPDDR4X
- Video recording: 4K resolution recording at 120 fps
Seeing your specifications, it seems that Samsung is not going to use it in its high range. So it is ruled out the presence of this Exynos 980 in the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note ranges or in their foldable phones, which will also be models within the highest range. So it has another destiny.
When will it be released?
Samsung has not said anything about the launch from Exynos 980 to the market. Nothing is known about which phones will be the first in its range to make use of it. Although as mentioned above, it seems that it will not be its high range that will make use of it.
It is intuited that it could be models within the mid-range that make use of it. Samsung left us yesterday with the Galaxy A90 5G, its first mid-range model with support for 5G. On more than one occasion the company has shown interest in dominating this market segment. Therefore, they have plans to launch as soon as possible models within the mid-range that will have 5G support. This processor would be a good help in this process.
Therefore, it would not be unusual for Samsung to arrive in 2020 in its mid-range or premium mid-range phones that use Exynos 980. The company is going to start processor production later this year, as they have already confirmed. So in 2020 the first phones that use it should arrive at the stores. We hope to hear from you these coming months.
