Samsung today announced the launch of its latest flagship application processor (AP), the Exynos 9 Series 9810 that is expected to power the upcoming Galaxy S9 series devices. The Exynos 9810, is built on second-generation 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET process for great performance and efficiency. This octo-core processor comes with several improvements and new deep learning processing capabilities.
Find the highlights of this processor below.
- The processor has a brand new eight-core CPU under its hood, four of which are powerful third-generation custom cores that can reach 2.9 gigahertz (GHz), with the other four optimized for efficiency.
- The single-core performance is enhanced two-fold and multi-core performance is increased by around 40 percent compared to its predecessor.
- The processor uses neural net to accurately recognize people or items in photos for fast image searching or categorization, or through depth sensing, scan a user’s face in 3D for hybrid face detection.
- The processor has a separate security processing unit to safeguard vital personal data such as facial, iris and fingerprint information.
- The first 1.2Gbps LTE modem is embedded in Exynos 9810. It’s the industry’s first Cat.18 LTE modem to support up to 6x carrier aggregation (CA) for 1.2Gbps downlink and 200 megabits per second (Mbps) uplink.
- It comes with a dedicated image processing and upgraded multi-format codec (MFC)
- Users will see advanced stabilization for images and video of up to UHD resolution, real-time out-of-focus photography in high resolution and brighter pictures in low light with reduced noise and motion blur.
- Devices with this processor can support video recording and playback at up to UHD resolution at 120 frames per second (fps). With 10-bit HEVC (high efficiency video coding) and VP9 support, the MFC can render 1,024 different tones for each primary color (red, green and blue).
