Almost a month after revealing some key details about its upcoming Exynos 1080 mobile SoC, Samsung Electronics has announced that it will be officially unveiled on November 12. It is expected to replace the Exynos 980 as the company’s top mid-range mobile processor, the Exynos 1080. It will be based on an efficient 5nm process which is said to be the same LPE node used for the upcoming Snapdragon 875 SoC. .
That’s according to the director of the Samsung Semiconductor China Research Institute, Dr. Pan Xuebao, who revealed last month that the chip will come with the new ARM Cortex-A78 CPU cores and the ARM Mali-G78 GPU. He also claimed that the chip exceeds 650,000 points in AnTuTu even while still in development. For comparison, high-end Android phones with Snapdragon 865 hover around the ~ 600,000 mark, so the next processor certainly looks promising.
It’s worth noting that Samsung is rumored to be working on two different mobile processors, at least one of which is said to feature AMD graphics. One of them is Exynos 1080, the other is believed to be the Exynos 2100, which is expected to power the company’s flagship Galaxy S21 series smartphones next year. While there isn’t much information on that front, it is expected to have the core of ARM’s Super CPU Cortex-X1, according to recent reports.
There doesn’t seem to be any more information on the Exynos 1080 at this point, but reports suggest that Vivo will be the first company to launch a phone with the new chipset. While neither Samsung nor Vivo have confirmed the exact model, insider Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) has claimed that the Vivo X60 could be the first device to work with the upcoming chipset.
