From the outside, the Galaxy S9 looks like an iterative update over the Galaxy S8, but under the hood, there is a lot going on thanks to the Exynos 9810. The chipset is already in mass production and Samsung has finally shed some light on the specifications of the Exynos 9810 and we will be detailing everything here, so continue reading.
Exynos 9810 Features Custom Cores That Can Run at 2.90GHz and Features Improved Facial Recognition Thanks to Deep Learning
Manufactured on the 10nm LPP architecture, Exynos 9810 sports an octa-core processor that comprises up of the following:
- 4 x third-generation custom cores running at 2.90GHz
- 4 x ARM Cortex-A55 for improved efficiency
According to Samsung, the new architecture widens the pipeline and improves cache memory, resulting in twice the performance in the single-core department and up to 40 percent in the multi-core department. We will have to see how these performance gains are displayed in synthetic and real-world scenarios when the SoC is pitted against the Exynos 8895, but there are other features that we will also be looking forward to.
“The Exynos 9 Series 9810 is our most innovative mobile processor yet, with our third-generation custom CPU, ultra-fast gigabit LTE modem and, deep learning-enhanced image processing. The Exynos 9810 will be a key catalyst for innovation in smart platforms such as smartphones, personal computing and automotive for the coming AI era.”
According to Samsung, Exynos 9810 now features stronger security and takes advantage of deep learning in order to improve the security features that we will eventually get to experience in the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. This will obviously include facial recognition, and this time, the scanning procedure is going to be taking place via depth sensing. These improvements will also be seen in the iris and fingerprint scanners, so we are sure to see enhancements in accuracy and speeds.
The Exynos 9810 also provides support for 4K video recording up to 120 frames per second. It will be interesting to see if the Galaxy S9 or the Galaxy S9+ will be able to get the same support. The SoC also gets an LTE modem with a 1.2Gbps download speed cap and 200Mbps upload speed cap.
We can expect both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to be unveiled during the MWC 2018 trade show so please stay tuned for more updates.
