Samsung has revealed the date of the official announcement of the Exynos 1080 processor that will be manufactured using 5 nm technology, which will succeed the Exynos 980 processor that was launched last year. It is now scheduled to officially announce the new Exynos 1080 processor on November 12 in Shanghai, and a special event will be held for that. We will get all the details about the new processor there, but we will have to wait a little while we see it for the first time on a real device.
According to recent rumors, it will be using the processor Exynos 1080 in the phone Vivo X60 next from the company Vivo, which is expected to be launched soon in China. Exynos 1080 will appear as the first processor using 5-nanometer technology that includes the large Cortex-A78 cores from ARM, which operates at a frequency of up to 3GHz, along with the Mali-G78 graphics processor.
The Exynos 1080 processor has already been spotted in the AnTuTu benchmark, as it managed to achieve more than 181,000 points in the central processor test. This puts the Exynos 1080 in a position slightly ahead of the Snapdragon 865 + that was used in the Galaxy Note 20 Series lineup.
The result of the processor in the graphics test was equally impressive, as it reached just under 300 thousand points, making the Exynos 1080 superior to some current gaming phones such as the Asus ROG Phone 3, as well as the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, which was able to achieve only 258,171 points.
In related news, today another processor from Samsung was spotted obtaining Bluetouth SIG authentication called Exynos 981, which is a mid-range processor that supports Bluetooth 5.2. We don’t know much about this processor, so we will have to wait for more leaks about this upcoming processor.
