Just a month ago, Samsung revealed a handful of key details about its upcoming mobile SoC, Exynos 1080 and now, the South Korean tech giant has announced that it will be officially unveiled on 12th November 2020.
Exynos 1080 mobile SoC is expected to replace Exynos 980 as the company’s upper mid-range mobile processor. Samsung has revealed that this Exynos 1080 will be built on an efficient 5 nm process which is said to be the same LPE node being used for the upcoming Snapdragon 875 SoC.
All these are revealed by none other than Dr. Pan Xuebao, Director of Samsung Semiconductor China Research Institute. Note that previously, in the last month, Dr. Pan Xuebao said that the chip will come with the all-new ARM Cortex A78 CPU cores and ARM Mali G78 GPU.
Dr. Pan Xuebao also claimed that the chip exceeded 650000 points in the AnTuTu benchmark while it was still under development. Just to let you know, top Android phones that come powered by Snapdragon 865 hover around the 600,000 scores in the AnTuTu benchmark so the upcoming processor certainly looks promising.
As per rumors, Samsung is working on not one but two different mobile processors and at least one of them would feature AMD graphics. It is more or less clear that one of them is the Exynos 1080, the other is believed to be the Exynos 2100, which might power the company’s flagship Galaxy S21 series smartphones of 2021.
There is not a lot of information about Exynos 2100 but reports suggest it will sport ARM Cortex X1 Super CPU cores.
Right now, there is no further information about Exynos 1080 at this point but reports suggest that Vivo will be the first company to launch a phone powered by this chipset. A popular tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) has also claimed that the Vivo X60 might be the first device to be powered by the upcoming chipset.
So far, there is no official confirmation either from Samsung or from Vivo.
