Everyone knows that Samsung is also very strong in smartphone processors. The performance of high-end Exynos chips is not weaker than Qualcomm and Huawei. However, in the 4G era, for various reasons, there are authorizations and product reasons. Besides Meizu, none of the Chinese brands used Exynos chips. But…

The performance of the Exynos 1080 has surpassed the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865 Plus. It is also slightly lower than the Kirin 9000. The overall performance is very powerful.
