Samsung officially launched the Series 9 Exynos 9810. The Exynos 9810, built on Samsung’s second-generation 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET process, brings the next level of performance to smartphones and smart devices with its powerful third-generation custom CPU, faster gigabit LTE modem and sophisticated image processing with deep learning-based software.
The Exynos 9810 will enable seamless multi-tasking with faster loading and transition times between the latest mobile apps. 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.
With an architecture that widens the pipeline and improves cache memory, single-core performance is enhanced two-fold and multi-core performance is increased by around 40 percent compared to its predecessor.
Exynos 9810 introduces sophisticated features to enhance user experiences with neural network-based deep learning and stronger security on the most advanced mobile devices.
This allows the processor 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.
By utilizing both hardware and software, hybrid face detection enables realistic face-tracking filters as well as stronger security when unlocking a device with one’s face.
For added security, the processor has a separate security processing unit to safeguard vital personal data such as facial, iris and fingerprint information.
The Exynos 9810 features the first 1.2Gbps LTE modem thanks to its support for 6x carrier aggregation (CA) for 1.2Gbps downlink and 200 megabits per second (Mbps) uplink.
Graphics performance will be boosted by the latest ARM Mali-G72 GPU promising 20% more performance than that of the predecessor whilst being more efficient. Video playback also supports 10-bit HEVC (high efficiency video coding) and VP9 codecs.
The Exynos 9810 features a dual-ISP supporting up to 4 image sensors such as a dual-camera in the rear along with a camera and an iris sensor in the front. The dual-ISP will provide 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.
The Exynos 9810 will power the upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in several markets around the world. Samsung will be displaying the Exynos 9810 next week at CES 2018.
“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,” said Ben Hur, vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics. “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.”
