Samsung Electronics has announced the newest member of its Exynos 7 Octa processor line-up, the Exynos 7 Octa 7870.

Based on Samsung’s 14-nanometer (nm) FinFET process, the company said that the Exynos 7 Octa 7870 is designed for next-generation mid-range smartphones and other mobile devices.

Samsung promised that its new system-on-chip consumes 30 percent less power than mobile SoCs built with a 28nm High-k Metal Gate process at the same performance level.

The Exynos 7 Octa 7870 is equipped with eight 1.6GHz Cortex-A53 cores and an LTE Cat.6 2CA modem that supports 300Mbps downlink speed, and FDD-TDD joint carrier aggregation for network flexibility.

It also supports 1080p 60fps video playback and a WUXGA (1920×1200) display resolution.

Its image signal processor delivers up to 16 megapixels (MP) of resolution for both rear and front cameras, or 8MP each in dual camera mode.

A Global Navigation Satellite System solution rounds out the chip, offering a fast time-to-first-fix feature.

Samsung said that the Exynos 7 Octa 7870 will be in mass production in the first quarter of 2016.
