Apple has presented the A14 Bionic and Huawei its Kirin 9000. Each of these processors was designed with the new 5nm technology that promises a remarkable improvement in power and consumption efficiency over 7nm chips. So it’s the turn of Samsung which will announce the Exynos 1080 on November 12 in Shanghai, China.
Rumors accompanying the teasers and appearances of the Exynos 1080 in smartphone prototypes indicate that the Exynos 1080 would debut on board the Vivo X60, the next flagship from the Chinese company. And even if it is Samsung’s first chip with 5nm process technology, this would not be its premium SoC.
Samsung Exynos 1080 details
A smartphone prototype with an Exynos 1080 processor appeared on the AnTuTu platform that was able to evaluate its performance. The values thrown put it a bit above the performance of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ but it does not come close to the A14 Bionic and Kirin 9000 from Apple and Huawei, respectively.
Qualcomm has already set an announcement date for its next highest-ranking chip, the rumored Snapdragon 875, and previous leaks and rumors indicated that Samsung would still not be up to the competition to be able to manufacture a processor that can be compared to it. to those of the highest hierarchy of Qualcomm.
That means that even if the Exynos 1080 does not turn out to be the only luxury processor that Samsung will launch in the next few months, whichever model surpasses this chip would not achieve the necessary performance to bridge the gap between the chips of the South Korean manufacturer and those of the leading North American company.
Samsung will announce the Exynos 1080 on November 12 and hopefully by then we will get the information on which smartphone the SoC in question would debut on. Let’s remember that the Korean company still owes us the Galaxy A of the 2020 generation of higher hierarchy.
