The first mid-range chip based on the 5nm manufacaturing process

Exynos 1080 is the direct successor of Exynos 980 which means that it is a chip for mid-range devices. But, despite the mid-range branding, this thing is a powerful one.

The SoC solution boasts a 1x 2.8GHz Cortex-A78 big core, 3x 2.6GHz Cortex-A78s cores, and 4x Cortex-A55 efficiency cores. The GPU is similar to the Kirin 9000, the Mali-G78. But, it only has 10 cores or MP10 instead of 24 cores.

For AI, the chip uses a powerful NPU (neural engine) and a DSP (digital signal processor) to make the chip run up to 5.7 trillion operations per second.

It supports up to LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.2 storage, and WQHD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate or FHD+ at 144 refresh rate.

Similar to the Exynos 980 last year, it has an integrated 5G modem. The modem supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave, up to 4G LTE Cat 18 LTE downlink and uplink, Bluetooth 5.2, WiFi, and FM Radio connectivities.

For cameras, it has support up to 200MP single camera or a dual 32MP + 32MP cameras. For videos, there's no 8K support. But, it has up to 4K at 60fps.

The first devices powered by this new chip are expected to arrive in early 2021. Similar to what they did with the Exynos 980 last year, vivo is expected to be the first mobile maker to release a phone using the Exynos 1080 chip.
