Samsung has announced its latest flagship chipset in the Exynos 9 series dubbed as the Exynos 9820. The Exynos 9820 is expected to power the upcoming Galaxy S10 and other Samsung flagship devices that will be launched in 2019. Samsung is touting AI features with Exynos 9820 as it comes with an enhanced Neural Processing Unit (NPU).
The new Exynos 9820 is the successor to Exynos 9810 that powers the Galaxy S9 series and the Galaxy Note 9. The new chipset is based on the 8nm FinFET process that reduces power consumption by up to 10% compared to the 10nm process. It also optimizes power consumption of CPU and GPU as well.
Exynos 9820 Features
The new Samsung Exynos 9820 is based on the 8nm LPP FinFET process technology. It has Octa-Core CPU that uses a tri-cluster architecture with two custom Exynos M4 CPUs, two ARM A75 CPUs, and four ARM A55 CPUs. It has ARM Mali-G76 MP12 GPU and an integrated NPU that performs AI tasks around seven times faster than its predecessor.
In terms of memory, it supports UFS 3.0, UFS 2.1, and LPDDR4x memory. For the camera, it has support for 22MP rear camera, 22MP front camera, and 16+16MP dual cameras. It has support for 8K recording at 30fps or 4K UHD recording at 150fps. It supports display up to WQUXGA (3840×2400 pixels) and 4K (4096×2160 pixels).
It has LTE-Advanced Pro modem with support for LTE Category 20 that will offer download speed of up to 2 Gbps and upload speed of up to 316Mbps. The modem supports 4×4 MIMO, 256-QAM, and eLAA technology. It also has an advanced ISP that supports up to five sensors including an IR sensor.
The Exynos 9 Series 9820 could be in mass production as of now. It will likely power the Galaxy S10 first that is expected to go official in February next year.
