Samsung Exynos 1080 chipset will be unveiled on November 12


Last updated: November 1st, 2020 at 12:33 UTC+01:00

Samsung is preparing to unveil a couple of chipsets in the coming months. These are the processors that will be used for many of the handsets that it will release in 2021. We have been hearing about the Exynos 1080 for some time now. Even Samsung confirmed its existence a couple of weeks ago.

The company has now confirmed when it’s going to unveil the Exynos 1080 chipset. While it is going to be a high-performance processor, this isn’t the one that’s going to be used for the Galaxy S21 series.

Samsung Exynos 1080 appears to be an absolute ripper

Samsung confirmed a couple of weeks ago that the Exynos 1080 features ARM’s latest Cortex-A78 CPU cores as well as the Mali-G78 GPU. ARM says that the Cortex-A78 boasts a 20 percent performance increase compared to the Cortex-A77. This 5nm processor will also have a built-in 5G modem.

An early Exynos 1080 benchmark did seem to be quite promising. The chipset made an appearance on AnTuTu where it scored 693,600 points, outscoring both the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865+ flagship chipsets.

The Exynos 1080 is widely believed to be the Exynos 980’s successor. Samsung launched the Exynos 980 last year as a 5G-enabled chipset for mid-range phones. It’s used in both the Galaxy A51 5G and Galaxy A71 5G. However, an Exynos 981 has also been spotted this week. Samsung hasn’t said anything about that chipset so far. It’s unclear where the Exynos 981 is going to fit in Samsung’s semiconductor offerings for 2021.

Samsung has confirmed through its official Weibo account that it’s going to make the Exynos 1080 official on November 12. This press conference is going to be held in Shanghai, China. That’s when we’ll finally know all of the technical details. Samsung may not immediately confirm which devices will use it. That information should become available in due course.
