Samsung is expected to launch the new Exynos 9 Series processor with its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S9. The new chipset could go on sale in early 2018.
- Built on 10-nanometer FinFET process technology
- 3rd-Gen custom CPU cores
- Upgraded GPU
- LTE Cat.18 6CA support
- 40% improvement in performance
- 20% improvement in downlink speed
The new Samsung Exynos 9 series processor is the company’s first chipset built on the 10-nanometer FinFET process technology. It is powered by the company’s third-generation custom CPU cores and an upgraded GPU (might feature Mali-G72 GPU instead of Mali G-71). The GPU based on Bifrost architecture promises up to 40 percent improvement in performance.
Additionally, the new Exynos 9810 chipset comes with support for Gigabit LTE modem. Samsung claims that the new processor will offer industry’s first 6CA (carrier aggregation) support. The LTE Cat.18 6CA-supported modem offers maximum download speed of up to 1.2Gbp (Cat.18). Samsung claims that it has worked closely with Anritsu (a telecommunication measuring instrument provider) for the modem. It offers 20 percent improvement in maximum downlink speed. Users will be able to download a full-length HD resolution movie within 10 seconds.
The new Exynos 9810 follows the company’s Exynos 9 Series 8895 SoC (used in the Galaxy S8 series and the Galaxy Note 8). The Exynos 9 Series 8895 processor comes with five carrier aggregation (5CA) support. The LTE Cat. 16 offers download speeds of up to 1Gbps and upload speeds of up to 150Mbps (Cat. 13).
Samsung is not known for resting with its technology. Apart from new processing power, the company is also focussed on bringing design innovations. It is expected to retain its Infinity Displays and compact factor on upcoming Galaxy S9/ S9+ smartphones along with some enhancements.
The Samsung Exynos 9810 chipset is expected to go against the upcoming Qualcomm SoC. Qualcomm is expected to announce its Snapdragon 845 processor (built on 7nm fabrication process) next year. How efficient is the new Samsung Exynos 9 Series processor? We will have to wait and find out.
