In the 5G era, Huawei and Qualcomm are the most popular in the high-end processor market. The chips of the two companies firmly control the market for high-end Android phones. Although Samsung has also introduced the Orion 990 processor, the Korean version of Samsung S20 is reluctant to use it, which shows its embarrassment. As for the mid-end mobile phone market, MediaTek is most proud of it, because high-pass squeezing toothpaste has made 5G mobile phones in the low-end market almost monopolized by MediaTek.
Speaking of mid-range chips, in fact, there was a special existence last year, that is the Orion 980 used by VIVO. This is a chip customized in-depth cooperation with VIVO, and this chip is only seen on VIVO and Samsung mobile phones. However, the overall performance is quite satisfactory, and naturally it has not been adopted by other manufacturers. If you want to talk about the strongest mid-range chips, Dimensity 820 and Kirin 820 must be in the front, and then Snapdragon 765G and Orion 980 will be the turn.
After being suppressed by MediaTek and Huawei, Samsung and Qualcomm will also catch up. Now the Internet has once again exposed Samsung’s new mid-range processor, the Orion 1080.
This chip uses a 5nm process and uses an A78+G78 architecture. The Antutu score is around 65W, and the first model is VIVO. In addition, the positioning of this product is not the highest-end, but the high-end. This chip will be the world’s third 5nm process processor.
Most likely the first model should be the VIVO X60 series. At present, the VIVO X60 series has been exposed, and according to the news, there is still a Snapdragon 875 version in this series.
Speaking of 65W running points in the current processor is indeed very big, better than the Snapdragon 865. However, Qualcomm and MediaTek will definitely not wait and die. Both will also launch 5nm process chips, but the time will be slightly later than Samsung. Of course, Samsung’s chips are only used on some models, and it is estimated that it will not have much impact on the markets of Qualcomm and MediaTek.
