Exynos 1080 is making rounds around the benchmarks for quite a long time. And yes, this new mid-ranger has managed to defeat Snapdragon 865+ in AnTuTu benchmarks already.
Given that it’s a mid-range processor, this will actually succeed the long-forgotten Exynos 980. Other than the Galaxy A71 5G, I don’t know which other phones are using the processor as of now. As of now, most of the details of the processor is quite unknown, however, Samsung has confirmed to Android Authority that the Exynos 1080 will use new Cortex-A78 Cores and Mali-G78 graphics. In comparison to the Exynos 980, we might see four Cortex-A78 Cores and four Cortex-A55.
As of now A55 cores are the only efficient cores in the market until and unless ARM introduces something new next year. Moreover, with the new Samsung’s 5nm process, these chipsets can deliver more efficient, yet powerful performance round the clock.
We might see an announcement for the same in the coming days.
