Samsung has revealed more details about the Exynos 5300 modem, which it supplied to Google for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 8 smartphones, saying the modem has undergone major improvements, providing more reliable and power-efficient performance.
In its publication, it mentioned a spec sheet for the Exynos 5300 modem, which provides additional details about the chip. The modem is available for other devices, but Google was the only one given early access.
According to Samsung, the Exynos 5300 is significantly faster, more reliable, and more power-efficient than its predecessors. The 4nm process modem can deliver 5G download speeds of up to 10Gbps and upload speeds of up to 3.87Gbps. It supports FR1, FR2, and EN-DC technology, allowing devices to deliver next-generation user experiences with fast 5G speeds and ultra-low latency.
The Exynos 5300 can handle download speeds of up to 3.0Gbps and upload speeds of up to 422Mbps on LTE networks. Although Samsung does not provide specifics on power efficiency, the “4nm EUV process… improves power efficiency” over the Exynos 5123 and extends battery life, according to the company. The Exynos 5300 also supports 3GPP’s 5G NR Release 16.
The Exynos 5300 was technically first used in the Google Pixel 7 series, but it will also be used in other smartphones in the future, as well as being part of Samsung’s Exynos 2300 chipset. The chipset would have been in the Galaxy S23 series if Samsung hadn’t reached a deal with Qualcomm for the “Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy” globally.
In summary, the Exynos 5300 modem offers faster, more reliable, and more power-efficient performance than its predecessors. It has been integrated into Google’s Pixel 7 series, offering a next-generation user experience with support for FR1, FR2, and EN-DC technology. The Exynos 5300 will be used in other smartphones in the future and will also be part of Samsung’s Exynos 2300 chipset.
