Exynos 1080 could just be a mid-range chipset, more powerful chipset in the wings


In the past month or so, several rumours about the latest Exynos chipsets from Samsung have been surfacing. A piece of news we covered recently mentioned the Exynos 1080 chipset beating current flagship chipsets in AnTuTu. Now, Samsung has allegedly confirmed that some details of this mid-range chipset.

According to Android Authority, the Exynos 1080 is a successor to the Exynos 980 chipset. If that's true, the fact that it can beat current flagship chipsets is amazing. To put it in other words, this chipset would blow all current mid-range chipsets out of the water. It also means that the Exynos 2100 chipset we've been hearing about would be Samsung's upcoming flagship mobile chipset and it could perform much better than many expect.

Since the Exynos 1080 is a successor, it's possible that it will have the same setup of 2+6 CPU core that the Exynos 980 has. In this case, it's expected to be two Cortex-A78 CPU cores and six Cortex-A55 CPU cores, as well as a Mali-G78 GPU. Allegedly, this 5nm chipset could be used in some Samsung Galaxy A series devices next year.

All this paints a good picture for Exynos going into 2021, but we'll have to wait for some official products before we can get excited. Let's us know whether you're keen on getting a device powered by these new Exynos chips in the comments below! For more news like this, stay tuned to TechNave.com.
