The Exynos 9 Series or more specifically the Exynos 9810, is built on Samsung’s second generation 10-nanometer FinFET architecture. According to the firm, the SoC will bring "next level performance" and described as:
"[the] most innovative mobile processor yet, with our third-generation custom CPU, ultra-fast gigabit LTE modem and, deep learning-enhanced image processing. 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.”
As you might expect from a new processor, it allows for better multi-tasking, along with faster load times of apps, and does all of this with its eight-core CPU - half of which is dedicated for performance, which can max out at 2.9GHz, while the other half is meant for efficiency. In addition, pipelines and cache memory of the SoC are improved, enabling better single core and multi-core performance.
Along with bringing more power, the new SoC also introduces "neural network-based deep learning and stronger security". The technology will allow the processor to more accurately recognize subjects in photos or facilitate enhanced depth-sensing for 3D face detection. With the advancement of hardware and software, Samsung claims that it "enables realistic face-tracking filters as well as stronger security when unlocking a device with one’s face". The processor has also upped the ante when it comes to cellular performance with its 1.2Gbps LTE modem.
The Exynos 9810 will also be able to bring improvements when it comes to taking photos and videos. Samsung is touting that 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". The chipset can also support video recording and playback at 4K at 120 frames per second.
Samsung has yet to state which devices will be getting this SoC, but we can guess that it will most likely be included in a variant of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
