Samsung has had an excellent record of manufacturing high-end smartphones. The Korean giant has had a record of preparing two variants of its smartphones. One packing Qualcomm’s latest and greatest SoC to date and one being their in-house Exynos variant.
Samsung has officially announced that they have prepared the Exynos 9810, a processor that they claim to be 40% faster compared to its predecessor, the 8895 most likely. Alongside that, the 9810 comes with deep learning capabilities, a fast 1Gbps LTE modem and excellent image processing capabilities that works in tandem with the SoC’s built-in deep learning processing built on Samsung’s second-generation 10nm FinFET process.
Samsung didn’t end there. Samsung also introduced their new Multi-Format Codec (MFC). MFC bring a host of impressive improvements to video playback and recording as well. Samsung has confirmed that the 9810 is capable of stabilizing footage upto 4K and is also capable of recording 4K video at upto 120FPS.
“The upgraded MFC supports 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).” – said Samsung in their press release.
Not only has Samsung made some excellent strides in terms of shear power, but they have also integrated 3D facial scanning for security purposes as well.
The new SoC packs eight cores running upto 2.9GHz. with four being optimized for high-performance while the other four being optimized for power efficiency purposes.
While these are indeed some amazing improvements, Samsung’s 9810 is definitely looking like a beast. Considering how much Samsung has pushed into its new SoC and that Samsung has announced that its new SoC is under mass production, its most likely going to be landing onto the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus later this year.
