Samsung has finally unveiled the most anticipated next-generation chipset named Exynos 9810 comprising of third-generation custom CPU and neural network-based deep learning. Supposedly, the new chip will empower the upcoming flagship device Galaxy S9.
The Exynos 9810 chipset is considered to be the company’s latest and most efficient processors to date that comes with improved core architecture and increased cache memory. It is laid out in an octa-core setup, of which four are custom performance cores clocked at up to 2.9 GHz and the other four are energy-efficient ones.
Samsung claims that the new chipset doubles the single-core performance and gains 40% boost in multi-core performance than its predecessor Exynos 8895 from Exynos 9 series. It is also revealed that the Exynos 9810 may increase graphical performance by 20% – thanks to its newer ARM Mali-G72 GPU.
In terms of playback, you get 10-bit HEVC and VP9 support. For connectivity, Exynos 9810 is capable of up to 1.2 Gbps downlink as well as 200 Mbps uplink speeds, with support for 6x carrier aggregation.
The South Korean tech giant has furnished neural networks in Exynos 9810 improving deep learning algorithms. The very improvement makes the chip efficient enough to recognize people and specific objects in an image.
Such mechanisms will not only help in recognizing specific people automatically within your photos but also offer better face unlock capability. Samsung has also introduced the “realistic face-tracking filters” as an alternative to the Animoji. Whereas, the “hybrid face detection” feature could be a worrying factor for Apple that has filled deep pockets for Face ID feature in iPhone X.
Better Multimedia Processing
The Exynos 9810 will provide more impressive multimedia experience with the help of an image processing and multi-format codec making the images and videos more clear even in low light conditions. The new chipset comes with separate processing unit for biometric information including facial, iris and fingerprint data.
The South Korean company will also make newer, better cameras possible with a dedicated image signal processor (ISP), which brings faster processing and stabilization in videos of up to UHD resolution at 120 frames per second, while at the same time reducing noise and taking brighter photos.
Galaxy S9 Featuring Exynos 9810
As the Samsung’s upcoming flagship devices Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be featuring Exynos 9810 chipsets, so it is likely that we see the launch of these devices somewhere near March. However, the chipsets are already up for mass production.
There’s a lot more coming with these chipsets and the more complex features will be revealed by the company soon enough.
