With Huawei and Apple unveiling their 5nm processors and Qualcomm scheduled to reveal the 5nm-based Snapdragon 875 in December, Samsung is also catching up with the 5nm race. Its first 5nm chip will be the Exynos 1080, and Samsung is set to unveil it on November 12 as confirmed on their Weibo post.
Aside from being a 5nm processor, the Exynos 1080 will be the first to use Mali-G78 cores for the GPU and Cortex-A78 cores for the GPU, with the Cortex-A78 cores running at 3Ghz.
The Exynos 1080 was spotted in an AnTuTu listing, flexing its 694k score. It also revealed some details about the first phone that will use it: 8GB LPDDR5 RAM, 512GB UFS 3.1 storage, 120hz display, and Android 11 out of the box. Carrying the codename Orion, the phone is said to be a vivo device—presumably the X60.
