Exynos ModAP


The Samsung-made Exynos chipset has only one problem hen comes to connectivity, it doesn't support 4G LTE and Samsung had to release two versions of the same device (one with Exynos chipset and the other with Snapdragon chipset with LTE support). Today, Samsung announced Exybos ModAP which is the first Exynos Chipset with LTE Cat.4 integrated. ModAP stands from "Modem and Application Processor", underlining the departure of previous setups where the modem was a separate chip.


The Exynos ModAP is built on a 28nm HKMG process. The processor supports Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP), which allows all eight of its cores to work simultaneously (4x Cortex-A15 + 4x Cortex-A7).

The modem also uses the more is better than one approach and supports carrier aggregation, meaning it bonds together multiple channels to achieve the LTE Cat. 4 prescribed speeds of 150Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink. The modem supports both FDD and TDD, popular internationally and in China respectively. 2G and 3G technologies are supported as well, including TD-SCDMA.


The chipset can record 2160p video at 30fps and has a relatively speedy 6.4GB/s channel RAM. The GPU was not mentioned but a recent Mali model would be a solid guess.
