Samsung works on the Exynos 1330 and 1380, two new mid-range SoCs

The future of Samsung’s Exynos SoCs had been left in doubt, especially after Qualcomm’s confirmation that the Galaxy S23 will only use the new Snapdragon 8 Gen2 SoC, a chip that has recently been presented and will become the new top of the range from the San Diego company.

However, the Exynos series is not limited to top-end chips, it also consists of several mid-range models, and even some low-end ones, so the fact that Samsung has ruled out an Exynos 2300 does not necessarily imply the end of this family of SoCs, and today, in fact, we have been able to confirm that the opposite will happen, since the South Korean giant plans to announce at least two new mid-range and lower-mid-range chips.

In the Bluetooth SIG database we have been able to find two references to the Exynos 1330 and 1380 SoCs. Both will be used in Samsung’s new Galaxy-A series of smartphones, which will debut in the first quarter of next year, and will be equipped with connectivity. Bluetooth 5.3 thanks to the Samsung Bluetooth Controller V6 RF chip.

The information is still scarce, but it is said that the Exynos 1380 will succeed the 1280 and that it will be used in the Galaxy A74 and Galaxy A54. For its part, the Exynos 1330 will succeed the 850 and will be integrated into the models Galaxy A3X, and maybe also in lower models. As you may have imagined, the first is the most powerful, and according to the first information, it will be configured with Cortex-A710 cores in the high-performance block and Cortex-A510 cores in its high-efficiency block. Its GPU would be a Mali-G615, and it would have a 5G modem.

For its part, the Exynos 1330 should represent uA major improvement over the Exynos 850, since the latter only uses Cortex-A55 cores. Its successor could have two blocks of cores, one with higher performance based on the Cortex-A7X architecture and another with low consumption focused on the Cortex-A55 architecture. Its specific GPU has not been revealed, but we can expect a low-mid-range Mali.

Before finishing I want to remind you that although Samsung does not launch an Exynos 2300 to accompany the Galaxy S23 this It does not imply, at least for the moment, that I am going to throw in the towel in the field of high-end SoCs. The South Korean company may have decided to take some time to improve the design of its most powerful chips, and that within a year or two we will see a new high-performance silicon.
