It was earlier reported that the Exynos 1080 is meant for China and that does seem to be the case, given that the chip will be unveiled in Shanghai, China and the unveiling event appears to be targeted at Chinese consumers only.
Ice notes that this is the first time Samsung is holding a special event for announcing a chip which is further proof that the South Korean giant has increased its focus on its chip arm.
Leaked benchmark scores suggest that the Exynos 1080 will outperform Qualcomm’s flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 865 Plus, which is based on the 7nm fabrication technology.
The new SoC will likely fuel upper mid-range smartphones.
