As Samsung continues to brew the Samsung Galaxy S10, we’re keen to see how the Samsung Galaxy S10 turns out when it launches next year. There’s a ton of things that we’re expecting from the Samsung Galaxy S10, most notably, being able to record in 4k/120FPS as well as being able to be virtually bezel-less.
Earlier this month, Samsung had announced the Exynos 9820, the successor the last year’s Exynos 9810. Since the Exynos 9 series of CPUs typically power Samsung’s lineup of high-end flagships, we’re pretty confident that the Samsung Galaxy S10 series of devices would be powered by the Exynos 9820.
There’s a lot to love about the new Exynos 9820. Though the reveal for the Exynos 9820 was vague, it definitely gave us some good clues for what the Samsung Galaxy S10 would be capable of at its max. Samsung has announced that the Exynos 9820 would be up to 40% more power-efficient than the current-gen 9810. In addition to that, Samsung has also teased that the Exynos 9820 would be up to 35% faster than the 9810 too in GPU-bound scenarios. With all of that information taken into account, one area that we did miss out on what the new storage capabilities of the Exynos 9820.
According to Samsung’s datasheet, the Exynos 9820 would support UFS 2.1 and UFS 3.0 storage standards out of the box. And if you haven’t been following the whole UFS takeover, UFS 3.0 would essentially be up to twice as fast UFS 2.1 counterpart and would incrementally better when it comes to power efficiency. This could very well mean that the Samsung Galaxy S10 would pack UFS 3.0 storage given that the Exynos 9810 didn’t support the technology during UFS 3.0’s infancy stages.
According to a report from JEDEC, sourced via Anandtech, UFS 3.0 caps out at 23.2Gbps worth of bandwidth, double that of its predecessor, UFS 2.1. In addition to that UFS 3.0 would be a whole lot more power-efficient too the reports suggested.
If that doesn’t get you excited enough, you should note that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 debuted with 512GB worth of internal storage. This means that the Samsung Galaxy S10 would most likely pack 512GB worth of internal storage too, and that too with UFS 3.0 standards. If this does end up being true, you could expect some insane speeds either way from the Galaxy S10 lineup of devices.
Boot up times, reads and writes would become matters of a few seconds. And we’re sure that this would open up a door to unlimited possibilities, especially for professionals who are capable of utilizing it, that is, if Samsung plans to install it into their lineup of future tablets, but that’s for another day.
