Samsung officially unveiled the Exynos 7872 chipset, which we already saw on the Meizu M6s. The new chip is part of the mid-range Exynos 5 series, but packs some more upscale features.

It is built on a 14nm process and features a hexa-core CPU with two clusters: 2x Cortex-A73 (2.0GHz) + 4x Cortex-A53 (1.6Ghz). The graphics power is supplied by a Mali-G71 GPU.

The chipset has built-in support for an Iris scanner, something currently reserved for flagship devices. Also, the camera department boasts 1080p @ 120fps video recording capabilities as well as Smart Wide Dynamic Range.
