Samsung Exynos 1080 Launched

Samsung previously confirmed the Exynos 1080 chipset last month, in a report revealing that it offers the latest Cortex-A78 CPU cores and the latest Mali-G78 GPU technology.

And this is proven by Samsung, as reported by the Android Authority, now, Samsung has released the Exynos 1080. Samsung claims its Exynos chipset has succeeded in becoming the leading processor in the world’s semiconductor industry.

The new processor is built on a 5nm process and is equipped with an octacore CPU, with one Cortex-A78 core clocked at 2.8Ghz, three Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.6Hz, and four Cortex-A55 cores at 2Ghz. Samsung claims that single-core performance has been improved by up to 50% while multi-core performance gets a 2x boost.

Samsung also introduced the Amigo power-saving solution that monitors and optimizes power consumption for apps and games. In fact, the brand claims a 10% increase in power efficiency with this solution.

This Korean company also doesn’t neglect its camera capabilities, as the Exynos 1080 supports 200MP (or dual 32MP / 32MP) cameras, up to six shooters, 4K / 60fps recording, “AI image processing,” and the ability to edit HDR10 + video.

5G is also taken into account here, thanks to an integrated modem that supports sub-6Ghz and mmWave speeds. Expect theoretical speeds of up to 5.1Gbps and 3.67Gbps from these respective 5G standards, notes Samsung.

Other notable features include NPU (featuring 5.7 TOPS performance), 144Hz refresh rate support on FHD + (or 90Hz refresh rate on WQHD +), Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6, LPDDR5 RAM support, and UFS 3.1 compatibility.

Samsung has also confirmed that Vivo will use the Exynos 1080 in 2021. This is allegedly for the Vivo X60 series, with the Vivo X30 series returning to use the Exynos 980 in December 2019. See the image above.

There’s no word yet on availability, but look forward to it, the chipset will be widely available in Q1 2021. Between the new heavyweight CPU cores (and more) and impressive camera credentials, this could be a huge upgrade over an Exynos 980 device like Galaxy A51 5G.
