Samsung Unveils Exynos 9810 10nm SoC Which Could Power Galaxy S9

 

Today, Samsung announced their latest and truest Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoC in CES 2018 Innovation Awards . It is the successor of Exynos 9 Series 8895 SoC that powers the Galaxy S8 series and the Galaxy Note8. It is based on the 2nd generation 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET process technology, uses company’s 3rd generation custom designed CPU cores and has LTE Cat.18 6CA-supported modem that offers maximum download speed of up to 1.2Gbp (Cat.18).




The company said they have worked closely with Anritsu, a telecommunication measuring instrument provider for the modem that offers 20% improvement in maximum downlink speed that would let users to download a full-length movie in HD resolution within 10 seconds.

Samsung said that it has an upgraded GPU without giving any details about it, but it might feature Mali-G72 GPU compared to Mali G-71 in the predecessor. The GPU based on Bifrost architecture promises up to 40% improvement in performance.

Now, it remains to be seen if there will be another 9810, made with an 8nm production node, but if the Galaxy S9 is supposed to arrive earlier than usual, and is going into mass production next month, we wouldn't be surprised to see it land with the 7nm Snapdragon 845 in the US, and the 10nm second-gen Exynos 9810 for the rest of the world. The average user most likely won't be able to tell a difference anyway, so we can't wait for the first Exynos 9810 scores to start hitting the benchmark databases.
