Exynos is a mobile processor mainly used by Samsung smartphones. The Galaxy Note8, the Galaxy S8, and Galaxy S8+ are using the Exynos 8895 chipset. For this year, Samsung has revealed their latest processor – the Exynos 9 series (9810).
The Exynos 9810 introduces sophisticated features to enhance user experience with deep learning-based software. This cutting-edge technology allows the processor to accurately identify items or persons in the photos for fast image searching or categorization. Furthermore, the Exynos 9810 enables a depth sensing feature to scan user’s face in 3D for face tracking filters as well as strong security when unlocking a device with one’s face.
With a clock speed of up to 2.9GHz, a 3rd generation custom CPU offers higher computing power so that its single-core and multi-core performances are improved around two-fold and 40 percent respectively when compared to its predecessor. Notably, the Exynos 9810 is built on the 2nd generation 10nm FinFET process to deliver a powerful performance with less power.
The Exynos 9810 embeds LTE modem that supports category 18 with 6CA(carrier aggregation) for downlink and 2CA for uplink. With faster downlink and uplink speed of up to 1.2Gbps and 200Mbps respectively.
It has a dual-ISP (Image Signal Processor) that support up to 4 image sensors such as a dual-camera in the rear along with a camera and an iris sensor in the front. With an AF statistics engine that enables faster and accurate phase-detection AF, diverse image processing algorithms such as demosaic, noise reduction, edge enhancer, and face beautification have been drastically improved. Furthermore, the imaging sub-system offers an advanced stabilization and real-time out-of focus photography in high resolution image and video of up to 4K UHD resolution and playback with frame rate up to 120fps.
The Exynos 9810 features the latest ARM Mali-G72 GPU that brings more realistic graphics with 20% more powerful performance than that of the predecessor. The GPU is built on ARM’s second generation Bifrost architecture intended for high performance with lower energy consumption. It’s specifically designed with arithmetic optimization for the trending machine learning and high fidelity mobile gaming. This not only helps gaming graphics on the smart phone but also on the VR headsets delivering fully immersive graphical experience.
The Exynos 9810 enables secure mobile experience with powerful features dedicated to security. The Exynos 9810 safeguards sensitive security software against malicious attack by combining binary encryption with enhanced DRAM encryption. The Exynos 9810 also features firewalls that isolate internal sub-systems from each other. For instance, with a firewall setup around modem or Wi-Fi sub-system, the processor is able to protect the main system against an unauthorized remote access via modem or Wi-Fi. Furthermore, the advanced hardware design utilizing a concept of secure and non-secure worlds hastens the growth of security-based mobile experiences such as payment, biometric authentications, UHD DRM, and so on.
