Samsung might be looking to develop a new Exynos chipset which will be based on the 5nm architecture and that could be as powerful or even more than their existing chipsets. The mobile chipset division of Samsung has been very busy in introducing new features in the chipset and creating the next-gen Exynos series. According to AnTuTu citing the source, the 5nm-based SoC is called the Exynos 1080 and it will debut soon. The first phone to feature the new 5nm chipset could be Vivo. It has also been reported that the Exynos 1080 has not been designed and created for the global market.
In Fact, the chipset has been specifically designed for the Chinese smartphone market. It is not the first time Samsung will be doing it. It has developed dedicated hardware for the Chinese market in the past as well through an OEM/Client. It is something that Samsung frequently does with its camera sensors that are specifically designed for this market. However, it does create confusion as to how this chipset will be different from the one they are offering in the global market and how will they tackle the global market with the chipset only designed for China?
Samsung is reportedly working on a new or second 5nm chipset which will be the Exynos 2100, which will be for the global market. The Exynos 2100 will be more powerful than the Exynos 1080. The Exynos 1080 was confirmed by the Samsung China R&D, however, they did not confirm any details about Exynos 2100.
