Samsung held an event in China and announced the new Exynos 1080 chip. The new Samsung Exynos 1080 is based on a 5nm process built on EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography) and it accommodates more transistors, hence it is more efficient and less power-consuming. Samsung touts the Exynos 1080 has been designed to easily manage performance-intensive tasks.
The octa-core Exynos 1080 follows tri-cluster architecture in which there is one Cortex-A78 core at 2.8GHz, three high-performance Cortex-A78 cores at 2.6GHz, and four high-efficient Cortex-A55 cores at 2.0GHz available. Samsung emphasizes that this arrangement is helpful in multitasking.
The chipset includes Mali-G78 MP10 graphics for better gaming. The Exynos 1080 supports a high refresh rate and HDR10+. It supports up to 144Hz refresh rate on up to Full HD display. It supports up to six camera sensors and up to 200MP single camera and a dual camera with configuration 32MP+32MP support. It also supports 4K at 60fps, 5G mmWave, and sub-6GHz, Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi (802.11ax).
It comes with support for LPDDR4x/LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. Also, Samsung touts the powerful Neural Processing Unit (NPU) and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) allow Exynos 1080 to harness better and run up to 5.7 trillion operations per second.
Reportedly, Vivo X60 and X60 Pro are the two phones that will utilize Samsung’s new Exynos 1080 processor first. According to a recent leak, the Vivo X60 could cost around $528. Meanwhile, phones have been leaked in real-life as well. According to one of the leaked images, these new bunch of phones will run OriginOS and not the FunTouch OS.
Currently, it is unknown when the two phones will launch in the market. We may receive more information on the same. So, let’s just wait for it.
