Samsung has already revealed that Exynos 1080 is the successor to the Exynos 980 & we will see it powering the 5G phones from Samsung & other brands (such as Vivo). It is also worth mentioning that this chipset is going to be the first 5nm SOC from Samsung. But, it should be noted that still, this is not the highest end SOC for 2021 from Samsung since that is rumoured to be the Exynos 2100.
A device, codenamed “Orion”, powered by the Exynos 1080 SOC was benchmarked by AnTuTu today & this revealed that it beats the Snapdragon 865+ SOC which is currently the most powerful chipset from Qualcomm. The Exynos chipset scored over 690,000 on AnTuTu Benchmark which is impressive since Snapdragon 865+ powered phones like the Asus ROG Phone 3 score around 640,000.
The benchmark also revealed that the octa-core CPU includes four Cortex-A78 cored clocked at up to 3GHz & four Cortex-A55 cores. There is the Mali-G78 GPU & the phone that was benchmarked has a 120Hz display, 8GB LPDDR5 RAM & 512GB UFS 3.1 storage. Android 11 runs out of the box.
With a GPU score of around 300,000, the Exynos 1080 beats the GPU of Snapdragon 865+ which scores around 250,000. But in terms of the CPU score, the Snapdragon 865+ is still better but by a slight margin.
Well, it is rumoured that the first phone powered by the Exynos 1080 SOC is going to be the Vivo X60 & it shouldn’t be much of a surprise because last year, the Vivo X30 series launched with the Exynos 980 5G.
