Samsung launched the 5nm Exynos 1080 processor for mid-range smartphones last week. This chip is considered as a successor to the Exynos 980, which was introduced last year and appeared for the first time on the Vivo X30.
Recently, AnTuTu has suddenly shared a snapshot of the benchmark score of Exynos 1080, tested on a mysterious phone code named “Orion”. The device scored an impressive score of 693600 points, even slightly better than the Snapdragon 865+.
The mysterious “Orion” smartphone is equipped with a 120Hz screen, Full HD + resolution (2376 x 1080 pixels) and runs Android 11. In addition to the Exynos 1080 processor, it also comes with 8GB of LPDDR5 and 512GB RAM. Memory in standard UFS 3.1.
Currently, it is unclear the name of the smartphone model with the code name Orion mentioned above. As expected, this could be a device belonging to the Vivo X60 series. In the CPU, GPU, MEM and UX tests of AnTuTu, the device scored 181099, 297676, 115169 and 99656 respectively.
With the Exynos 1080 processor, the phone achieved an overall AnTuTu score of 693600, even higher than the overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865 Plus – the chipset used on most high-end Android smartphones debuting in this year.
The Exynos 1080 is built on a 5nm LPE process, with a total of eight processing cores – including four Cortex-A78 CPU cores, four Cortex-A55 CPU cores and the Mali-G78 GPU. As is known, this chip is designed for mid-range smartphones and the first device to use it will be the Vivo X60, expected to launch in about 1 to 2 months.
