The Exynos 1080-enabled 5G processor is likely to enable many mid-range and mid-sized installments for Samsung in 2021.
Samsung will soon be launching a new Exynos processor that will be used for its many phones in 2021. Named the Exynos 1080, the upcoming chipset will be targeted at mid-range and budget smartphones. Samsung is expected to launch a separate platform for its flagship phones such as the Galaxy S21, Z Fold 3, and the Next-gen Note series.
Samsung will unveil the new chipset on November 12, Sammobile reported. The company will host the event in Shanghai, China as well. As of now, Samsung has not yet revealed the names of the phones that will use the Exynos 1080.
That said, Samsung has already confirmed that there is an Exynos 1080 processor. The company recently announced that the chipset will include new Cortex-A78 CPU and Mali-G78 GPU CPUs. According to ARM, its Cortex-A78 will offer at least 20% better performance than its predecessor, the Cortext A-77. Another highlight of the Exynos 1080 is that it will come with a 5G modem, which will pave the way for less expensive 5G phones by 2021.
The report comes after AnTuTu’s benchmarks for Exynos 1080 opened online. The chipset reportedly has 693,600 points, surpassing the likes of Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865 Plus chips.
According to Sammobile, the Exynos 1080 will follow the Exynos 980, launched last year. 5G enabled phones like Samsung Galaxy A71 and Galaxy A51. Interestingly, the Exynos 981 has also been spotted online, but very little is known about this chip yet.
