Samsung and Vivo officially unveil the Exynos 1080 SoC

Samsung and Vivo have officially unveiled the Exynos 1080 chipset at an event in China, with the new hardware destined for upcoming mid-range hardware.

The Exynos 1080 is the first 5nm chipset from Samsung built with EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography) FinFET technology. 5nm (“five nanometer”) is shorthand for how small the transistors are on the chip itself.

Compared to Samsung’s 7nm process, the 5nm processor increases the number of transistors by more than 80 precent. Compared to the 8nm LPP (Low Power Plus) process, the 5nm Exynos 1080 delivers 14 percent improved performance and a 30 percent reduction in power usage. In comparison to 7nm DUV (Deep Ultraviolet Lithography), the new chip offers a 7 precent improvement in performance and an 18 precent reduction in power consumption

The Exynos 1080 is an octa-core chipset with 1+3+4 tri-cluster architecture. It comprises of Cortex A78 single-core processor that clocks at 2.84GHz, Cortex-A78 triple-core processor that ticks at 2.6GHz, and Cortex-A55 quad-core processor with works at 2.0GHz.

The SoC includes Mali-G78 MP10 graphics and comes with support for LPDDR4x / LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. 

The Exynos 1080 with NSA/SA dual modem for 5G connectivity supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G spectrums. It supports other connectivity features like Wi-Fi 802.11ax, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, GLONASS, BeiDuo, and Galileo.

Phones driven by Exynos 1080 can have WQHD+ resolution display with up to 90Hz refresh rate or Full HD+ resolution screen with up to 144Hz refresh rate. It supports up to a 200-megapixel single camera or 32-megapixel + 32-megapixel dual camera setup or a maximum of 6 cameras. The SoC also supports HDR10+ and 4K 60ffps encoding and decoding with HEVC.
