After a lot of leaks and details, Samsung has finally released its new Exynos 1080 chipset in the market, which is based on the new 5nm manufacturing process. The launch event was held in China where the company launched its new chipset for upcoming mid-range hardware. The chipset has been built using Samsung’s own 5nm architecture and is expected to provide a low power consumption when compared to all the other Exynos chipset by Samsung.
When looking at the specification of the new chipset, it can be easily compared to Exynos 990, which is also used in the global variant of Note 20 and S20 series. The new chipset will offer Cortex-A78 CPU cores and the brand new Mali-G78 MP10 GPU for enhanced graphical performance. The chipset comes with one Cortex-A78 core clocked at 2.8GHz, a trio of Cortex-A76 cores at 2.6GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2GHz. It will also support FHD+ displays and up to 144Hz refresh rate or QHD+ display at 90Hz.
The chipset will also include a new power-saving feature called “Amigo“, which can monitor the performance and load on the chipset and manage power consumption accordingly. The most important and interesting part is the support for the camera sensor. The sensor can support cameras up to 200-megapixels, or a dual 32-megapixel set up simultaneously. Also, it will support 4K 60fps video with HDR10+. The chipset will support the 5G feature as it is integrated with a 5G modem for wireless connectivity. It will also support both sub-6Ghz and mmWave networks, making it a fully global chipset. The chipset is expected to launch first with Vivo smartphones.
