Samsung has announced its latest mobile processor, the Exynos ModAP. It’s been a while (almost two years) since a Samsung Exynos processor has been relevant in the US because they’ve lacked LTE support. However, the Exynos ModAP might finally change that.
The ModAP is a quad-core chip based on a 28nm process, which claims to play back 4K video seamlessly (something many modern chips simply cannot do). But the chip itself doesn’t much matter, as the important bit is the integrated LTE-Advanced modem. Samsung has finally fixed the biggest issue in Exynos chips. There is also a built in image signal processor, which allows for faster image capturing.
It’s actually pretty exciting that we might just see another Exynos processor here in the US. Though it’s not confirmed (the loyalty to Qualcomm is strong here), I’m hoping for it. I loved Exynos processors back in the day, despite the issues they had. Would you buy an Exynos-powered device? Tell us in the comments!
