The chip also supports iris sensors, which are available only on high-end smartphones. Besides it also allows the camera to record 1080p video at 120 frames per second and supports the Smart Wide Dynamic Range. But because it’s a mid-range chip, the 7872 also has some limitations.

Other features of the 7872 include LTE Cat modems. 7 2CA (download speed 300 Mbps, upload 150 Mbps), support dual-band 802.11n WiFi. The navigation system is capable of supporting GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and Galileo. The supported memory types are LPDDR3 for RAM, eMMC 5.1 for integrated storage, and SD 3.0 for external memory cards.
Recently, Samsung‘s Galaxy A8 (2018) debuted with the Exynos 7885, a 14nm chip with eight cores, divided into two groups of two high-speed and six low-speed. The 7885 supports higher resolutions and a longer screen ratio but cannot record 2160p video.
