The VIVO X60 series will get a release date later this month and, according to reports, the phone will run on Samsung’s Exynos 1080 chipset…

The VIVO X60 will be the first production phone to run on Samsung’s new 5nm Exynos 1080 chipset. Reports suggest the VIVO X60 series will land on December 28. There’s no word on pricing yet – but it should still be relatively cheap compared to top-tier phones from Samsung and Apple.

Is The Samsung Exynos 1080 Any Good?

Well, it’s a 5nm chipset, so that should bring some much-needed efficiency and power management optimizations. Beyond this, the Exynos 1080 runs four Cortex-A78 CPU cores, four Cortex-A55 CPU cores, the Mali-G78 MP10 GPU, and an integrated NPU for AI processing.

Samsung says the Exynos 1080’s peak performance is around 20% more than the current Exynos 980 CPU. The difference with the Exynos 1080, however, is that Samsung is looking to bring it to mid-tier, cheaper Android phones, as well as flagship phones, indicating a change in how Samsung runs its chip business.

The Exynos 1080 also supports LPDDR5 RAM and ultra-fast UFS 3.1 storage.

The Exynos 1080 was designed to manage performance-intensive tasks with ease, and allows you to seamlessly switch from app to app with minimal lag. Based on the tri-cluster architecture, the processor’s octa-core CPU consists of one Arm Cortex-A78 core optimized for peak performance, three Cortex-A78 cores for balanced processing, and four Cortex-A55 cores for efficiency. Optimized for new form factors, this powerful combination of cores offers the performance needed to master multitasking – Samsung
