Samsung has decided to go with a triple core design with octa-core CPU which has four Cortex-A78 cores and four Cortex-A55 units. The most powerful Cortex-A78 core runs at 2.8GHz, while the second cluster of three Cortex-A78 reaches 2.6GHz. The A55 unit has a clock speed of 2.0GHz and the GPU is Mali-G78 MP10.
It promises 50% better single-core performance and 2x improvements in multi-performance. The powerful neural processing unit (NPU) and digital signal processor (DSP) are capable of running up to 5.7 trillion operations per second.
It has a 5G integrated modem supported with both types of 5G networks Sub-6GHz and MMWave standards and phones with Exynos 1080 chipsets can also enjoy Cat.18 LTE downlink and uplink. It supports Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6 and Radio.
