The company's Exynos Auto T5123 is the first 5G modem created specifically for cars and Samsung is already mass-producing it. It has a pair of Cortex-A55 cores CPU cores which enables it to provide satellite positioning data for navigation. 

Moreover, the modem follows the 3GPP Release 15 standard. It also reportedly exhibits a "high speed" PCIe interface, supports for LPDDR4x mobile DRAM and on-board Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), which might save a car OEM an integrated circuit (IC) or two.

Meanwhile, the Exynos Auto V7 is the newest addition to Samsung’s automotive-brand processor lineup. It is said to be meant for in-vehicle infotainment systems for mid to high-end vehicles.

The Exynos Auto V7 has just been announced with no less than eight 8 ARM Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 1.5GHz and 11 Mali-G76 cores. Samsung notes that this compartmentalization makes sure that the Auto V7's graphical powers flow smoothly and quickly. 

Moreover, this cutting-edge processor can support up to 4 displays, 12 cameras, and 32GB of LPDDR4X RAM. For the GPU, the tech giant split it into two clusters. There are eight cores that render graphics for the central information display on the dashboard, while the remaining three cores service the display in the instrument cluster and an optional AR heads-up display. 

In addition to this, there is an NPU for AI applications so it can perform speech, face, and gesture recognition. This can be used for anything from voice commands to building a driver monitoring system.

The Auto V7, is also being mass-produced and has been taken up by Volkswagen for its next-gen In-Car Application-Server (ICAS, v3.1), developed by LG's Vehicle Component Solutions division.

Finally, the third chip that Samsung just announced is a power management IC that was created specifically for the Exynos Auto V7 and V9. Allegedly, it received an ASIl-B certification earlier this year. 

This new chip contains features such as one might want to hear about in a new charging accessory, over-and under-voltage protection, short circuit protection, over current protection, thermal shut down, and real-time clocking.
