Exynos 9810 enables a depth sensing feature to scan a user's face in 3D for face tracking filters as well as offer strong security when unlocking a device with one's face," according to Samsung.
Samsung has announced the Exynos 9810 SoC. The Exynos 9 Series 9810 is the company’s most innovative offering till date. This processor is built on Samsung’s second generation 10nm FinFET process technology. It offers an ultra-fast gigabit LTE modem and deep learning-enhanced image processing. The new Exynos 9810 SoC is capable of enhancing single-core performance twofold as well as improving multi-core performance by approximately 40 percent vis-a-vis its predecessor. Currently, the processor is being mass produced and is likely to be introduced along with the Galaxy S9 and S9+. These much-awaited smartphones are expected to be unveiled first at the CES 2018 in Las Vegas this month.
The Exynos 9810’s neural network-enabled deep learning technology will enable the chipset to identify items and people in pictures. This will users to search for images faster. “Exynos 9810 enables a depth sensing feature to scan a user’s face in 3D for face tracking filters as well as offer strong security when unlocking a device with one’s face,” according to Samsung.
Other security features comprise a processing unit which protects user information such as iris, facial as well as fingerprint data. Then there are firewalls which isolate internal sections from one another. The new SoC sports a third generation custom CPU which the company has upgraded by offering wider pipelines as well as an improved cache memory. This CPU is capable of delivering a clock speed of 2.9GHz, according to Samsung. The chipset’s four customized CPU cores are clocked at a speed of 2.9GHz while Cortex-A55 cores, also four in number, clock at a speed of 1.9GHz. The Exynos 9810 offers ARM Mali-G72 MP18 GPU and supports LPDDR4x RAM.
The SoC’s advanced Multi-Format Codec comprises H.265 (10-bit HEVC), H.264 as well as VP9 codecs. These produce more colours (64 times) as compared to the regular 8-bit format for colours. Exynos 9810 comes with a dual-ISP or Image Signal Processor. This supports up to four image sensors which include a rear dual-camera and an iris sensor on the front. These imaging options enable real-time photography with high-resolution images and advanced stabilization. The SoC offers support for up to 16-megapixel dual sensors and up to 24-megapixel rear and front cameras.
The new chipset from Samsung will support WQUXGA displays with 2400×3840 pixels resolution and 4K UHD displays with 4096×2160 pixels resolution. When it comes to storage, the Exynos 9810 processor supports SD 3.0 and UFS 2.1.
The Exynos 9810 SoC can stream high-quality content by virtue of a downlink speed of 1.2Gbps and an uplink speed of up to 200Mbps, respectively. This new processor also offers support for 4K UHD videos and playback with a frame rate of up to 120fps. The audio subsystem offers an audio quality of up to 32bit/384kHz. The Exynos 9 Series SoC is likely to debut with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 on the 2018 models of Galaxy S9. To recall, Qualcomm had announced the Snapdragon 845 processor as its latest premium SoC offering in December 2017.
