OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi could use Samsung’s Exynos processors next year


Last updated: November 4th, 2020 at 09:16 UTC+02:00

Samsung was criticized a lot for its Exynos processors, especially in its entry-level and high-end smartphones. The company upped its game with the launch of the Exynos 980 processor, and its performance is largely equivalent to the Snapdragon 765G. Now, it is being reported that Samsung is seeking more customers for its Exynos chipsets.

According to a report coming out of South Korea, System LSI (Samsung’s semiconductor design division) plans to supply Exynos processors to OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi. These Chinese brands are expected to use Exynos SoCs in their budget smartphones. The South Korean tech giant could also gain chipset orders for mid-range and high-end smartphones in the future if it manages to showcase its technical prowess.

System LSI has reportedly reduced the supply of Exynos processors to Samsung’s smartphone division because of a lower profit margin. The company has already supplied Exynos 880 and Exynos 980 chipsets to Vivo. The upcoming Exynos 1080 chipset, which will be unveiled on November 12 in China, is rumored to debut with the Vivo X60. The 5nm processor will also be used inside the Galaxy A52 and the Galaxy A72.

The Exynos 1080 chipset is made using Samsung’s 5nm EUV process, and it features four Cortex-A78 CPU cores, four Cortex-A55 CPU cores, and Mali G78 GPU. Performance-wise, the new Exynos processor is rumored to be slightly faster than the Snapdragon 865+ as it uses ARM’s new CPU cores and more advanced fabrication process.
