The Korean giant already spilled some beans about the chipset’s features. It will come with ARM Cortex-A78 CPU cores featuring Mali-G78 GPU. It is built on a 5nm process which improves the efficiency and speed of the processor. Exynos 1080 is coupled with built-in 5G modem providing seamless connectivity across the globe.

It performs better than the Snapdragon 865 and SNapdragon 865+ as according to the leaked AnTuTu benchmark score. Exynos 1080 scored 692,600 points which is much better than that of Qualcomm’s flagship at the moment.

It will be a high-end chipset that could land up on the devices early next year. However, the Galaxy S21 is speculated to feature Exynos 2100 which could be more powerful than the Exynos 1080.

Another Exynos chipset- Exynos 981 is frequently leaking as a predecessor to the mid-range chipset – Exynos 980. It will be interesting to see how the Korean giant manages to launch these chipsets across different devices.
