It will support 5G connectivity and the smartphone can feature Cat.18 LTE downlink and uplink. As per the other connectivity options, there are Bluetooth 5.2, all the Wi-Fi bands, and FM Radio. In terms of camera, this chipset supports a camera with a primary sensor up to 200MP or 32MP + 32MP units. Videos can go up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second (fps).
In terms of RAM and storage type, this chipset will offer the latest LPDDR4x and LPDDR5 RAM standards and the storage type will be UFS 3.1. Regarding the display, it can be a WQHD+ display with a refresh rate of 90Hz or else an HD+ panel with a refresh rate of 144Hz. Another good thing is, this chipset will be used by Samsung in its mid-range smartphones and it is expected to arrive in the first half of 2021.
