Samsung’s Exynos 1080 mobile processor is its first five-nanometer SoC

Samsung has presented the Exynos 1080 mobile processor for high-end smartphones. Built to empower a new generation of mobile experiences, Samsung’s Exynos 1080 mobile processor combines cutting-edge 5G and AI capabilities into one powerful 5nm EUV process-based chip.

The new Exynos 1080 is manufactured in 5 nanometers and packs an eight-core chip running a single-core, with an Arm Cortex-A78 core at 2.8 GHz for maximum performance, three Cortex-A78 cores for balanced performance running at 2.6 GHz; and four Cortex-A55 cores for efficiency with clock speeds of 2.0 GHz. It incorporates Samsung’s second-generation Valhall architecture-based Mali-G78 GPU. When gaming, this powerful GPU allows the Exynos 1080 to amplify your immersion with smooth, detailed visuals while also reducing load times and lag.

Like all new SoCs, this 5G modem is built into the chip and is compatible with mmWave and sub-6 GHz networks, allowing maximum speeds of 5.1 Gbps. In addition, other connectivity options include Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6. Finally, the Exynos 1080 can handle a single 200 MP sensor or dual 32 MP + 32 MP cameras and offers 4K video recording at 60 fps.

Thanks to the 5-nanometer process and efficient cores, the SoC can run on thinner batteries and consume less power. Besides, this processor can also support screens with WQHD + resolution at 90Hz going up to 144Hz if it is FHD+. In addition, the chip is compatible with LPDDR4x and LPDDR5 RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage.

Designed to support faster and more secure on-device AI, the mobile processor takes intelligent services to the next level by enabling applications like virtual assistants and AR to process information directly on your device. A powerful neural processing unit (NPU) and digital signal processor (DSP) make the Exynos 1080 capable of running up to 5.7 trillion operations per second, which is more than enough power to support a wide range of AI applications.
