Samsung officially announces Exynos 9810 SoC

Ben Hur, vice-president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics said in a blog post, "The Exynos 9 Series 9810 is our most innovative mobile processor yet, with our third-generation custom CPU, ultra-fast gigabit LTE modem and, deep learning-enhanced image processing".

Samsung's new Exynos 9810 processor teases what its Galaxy S9/S9+ and even Note 9 might feature: "hybrid face detection" which scans users' faces in 3D.

By utilizing both hardware and software, hybrid face detection enables realistic face-tracking filters as well as stronger security when unlocking a device with one's face.

Additional security features include a processing unit that safeguards user information like facial, iris and fingerprint data. Notably, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are also expected to be powered by the recently unveiled Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in some regions.

The organization recognizes "sensible face-following channels and also more grounded security while opening a gadget with one's face" as the real points of interest - which will be natural to the vast majority as feature iPhone X highlights: animoji and Face ID.

Samsung's Exynos 9810 SoC sports a 3rd generation custom CPU that Samsung has upgraded with wider pipelines and optimised cache memory.

In terms of CPU power, you're looking at four third-generation custom cores (presumably keeping the Mongoose name) clocked at 2.9Ghz, as well four new A55 cores (1.9Ghz) for lightweight tasks. Numerous features it promises look suspiciously like features we've seen before - in the iPhone X. Another highlight of the processor is its camera handling capabilities. The specifications page of the processor also suggests it to support 4K display resolution along with camera sensors up to 24MP. Samsung says the new SoC supports 120 fps slow motion video recording in UHD resolution. Samsung has used the latest 1.2Gbps LTE modem embedded in Exynos 9810, which is the first Cat.18 LTE modem capable of supporting up to 6x carrier aggregation (CA) for 1.2Gbps downlink and 200 megabits per second (Mbps) uplink.

From the outside, the Galaxy S9 looks like an iterative update over the Galaxy S8, but under the hood, there is a lot going on thanks to the Exynos 9810. These new SoCs have been created to power the next-generation Android flagship devices that will launch in 2018.
