First Smartphone To Be Powered by Exynos 1080
So which smartphone will be the first to be powered by the Exynos 1080? Rumor have it that vivo will be the first smartphone maker to adopt Samsung’s Exynos 1080 SoC. The vivo X60 and X60 Pro, launching in China soon, will likely be the first smartphones to be powered by this 5nm chipset.
Also, if you are not already aware, this is not Samsung’s flagship chipset for next year. Exynos 2100 is rumored to take that spot and will be baked into the upcoming Galaxy S21 series launching earlier than usual next year. The Galaxy S21 series is rumored to arrive in January as opposed to the February launch schedule.
