As expected, Samsung introduced a new SoC of the Exynos series, which will be available for the first time in the Galaxy S10. At Samsung, a new generation of Exynos usually comes in the spring with the Galaxy S flagship and in the coming year, this should be the case again. As with the last model, the processor was shown in advance.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 should, therefore, come with the new Exynos 9820 on the market, which replaces the Exynos 9810, which is found in the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9. While the last SoC was only presented in January 2018, the Exynos 9820 has already been presented.
Unlike Apple, Huawei and Qualcomm have opted here for the 8-nm process, Samsung itself speaks of 10 percent more battery compared to its predecessor and of course there is also more power at the same time.
The Exynos 9820 features 8 cores, two dedicated CPUs, two Cortex-A75 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores. Thanks to the fourth generation of its own CPUs, the new Exynos should bring up to 15 percent more power in the multi-core performance compared to the last, with a core is 20 percent more.
Of course, there is also a NPU (Neural Processing Unit), but apparently only one, it was once of a dual-core NPU the speech. Add to that an ARM Mali G76 MP12 GPU, an LTE modem (Cat.20 8CA), support for 4K display, 8K video recording (30 fps, 4K at 150 fps) and the new chip is even more secure. USF 3.0 memory is also supported.
The Exynos 9820 supports up to 5 sensors simultaneously with the camera and can also handle IR sensors. However, there is no question of a 3D scanner for the front. It is quite possible that Samsung may also pack something like that on the back of upcoming smartphones.
Faster, more energy-efficient, faster when surfing with LTE, faster memory thanks to UFS 3.0, optimized for multiple cameras, these are the key features of the Exynos 9820. 5G is not there yet, let’s see how Samsung solves it. Presumably there will be a separate SoC there.
By the way, Samsung has not yet said when we’ll see the sensor and it does not mean that all the new possibilities in the Galaxy S10 are exhausted. For example, I do not expect to see a 4K display now. However things like UFS 3.0 memory, faster LTE and 4K with 150 fps would be conceivable. More details will come in 2019.
