While it was eagerly anticipated for Samsung’s new processor to power its flagship phones, good news came for the mid-range segment. The Exynos 981 processor has appeared on the Bluetooth SIG site, which could be Samsung’s new mid-range pioneer. Although we still know very little about the processor, this processor can make a big impact in the mid-range segment.
Samsung’s Exynos 981 processor first appeared
As you know, we see devices from the middle segment back in the Galaxy A series. The last processor to power these devices was Exynos 980 and with this processor we could see mid-range 5G support. While waiting for Samsung to name the successor to this processor with a name like “Exynos 1080”, a processor called Exynos 981 appeared on the Bluetooth SIG site.
The Exynos 980 was just a variation of the Galaxy A51, Samsung’s mid-range phone that marked this year. If the Exynos 981 processor is not used to add 5G to existing Galaxy A series phones, it will likely appear in newer models such as the Galaxy A52 or A72.
We told you that the successor to Exynos 980 could call it something like Exynos 1080; If the Exynos 981 has 5G support, the Exynos 1080 may be a processor that doesn’t support 5G. If we look at the current smartphone market, we see that mid-range phones with LTE support are selling well. Perhaps for now it is not correct to associate 5G with the Exynos 1080 processor.
The only clear information about the processor is that it supports Bluetooth 5.2. This detail is not the kind that will excite us, we will convey the developments that will be announced in the future.
