Exynos 850 is listed on Samsung’s website with part number S5E3830 and it is made using Samsung’s 8nm LPP process.
It is an octa-core processor with ARM Cortex-A55 CPU and Mali-G52 GPU. The processor supports up to Full HD+ display with resolution up to 2520 x 1080 pixels. The maximum camera support is up to 21.7MP cameras which should be split if the end phone is having a multi-camera setup.
As the new processor is aimed for mid-range smartphones, it does not get 5G support. Instead, the SoC comes with a 4G LTE modem with Cat.7 D/L and Cat.13 U/L. It supports LPDDR4X RAM and eMMC 5.1 storage as well.
Video Encoding and Decoding maximum compatible by the processor is up to FHD 60fps and supported codecs include HEVC(H.265), H.264, VP8. It also gets multiple navigational support technologies like GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo, and other connectivity features include 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, and FM Radio.
Samsung has not revealed more information regarding the processor and devices to use the same. In the future, Samsung might be planning to use the same SoC in some lower-mid-range smartphones without 5G connectivity.
The earlier launched Galaxy A21s is expected to come with Exynos 850 SoC and is already available in London. It was launched for about $210 which is roughly RS. 16,000 in India. If the device makes it to India it will be even cheaper.
