Samsung’s New 14nm Chip Exynos 7872
Samsung is working on a new 14nm chip called the Exynos 7872. The new mid-range chip has a number of features going for it, the key feature being full network support.
It will have six cores: 4 Cortex-A73 and 2 Cortex-A53 cores, paired with a Mali-T830 GPU. According to a Weibo post by @Grass Grass Grass, there has been a change. Instead of the T830, the GPU has been swapped for a Mali-G71 MP1.
This is a high-performance ARM GPU and a variant of the one found in the Kirin 960 (Mali-G71 MP8). The Mali-G71 actually maxes out at 32 cores.
There is no release date yet but rumor has it that the phone Meizu is working on is a variant of the E2 recently released.
