Samsung recently announced its new Exynos 9611 chipset with its latest smartphone Samsung M30s. It is the successor to the Exynos 9610 SoC which was featured in the Samsung Galaxy A50 and other entry levels to mid-range Samsung smartphones. The differences between the Exynos 9611 and the Exynos 9610 are the clock speeds of the processors as well as the onboard GPU which is the Mali G72 MP3.
The Samsung Exynos 9611 is manufactured using a 10nm FinFET (Fin Field Effect Transistor) process, which is the same as its predecessor, the Exynos 9610. The 10nm processor gives enhanced performance along with better battery life for smartphones. The CPU clock speeds of the octa-core CPU are up to 2.3 GHz on one Quad Core Cortex A73, and up to 1.7 GHz on another Quad Core Cortex A73, both the processors are arranged in a 64-bit octa-core arrangement. The arrangement is the same as the Exynos 9610. However, the clock speeds of the processors are improved significantly.
The GPU on this System on Chip is the Mali G72 MP3 which is an integrated mid-range graphics processor which is built for ARM-based System on Chips and was introduced back in 2018 with the MediaTek Helio P60. The GPU is named MP3 as it utilizes 3 clusters at once. The chip is the same as the Exynos 9610, but the clock speeds are improved.
The Samsung Exynos 9611 Processor supports 4K UHD video recording at up to 120 frames per second. It performs encoding and decoding with HEVC (H.265) and VP9 respectively. The processor has an advanced vision processing unit which makes the photos from the smartphone comparable to DSLR pictures. There is advanced facial recognition which detects faces that are even half-covered or are not facing the camera. The processor also supports the bokeh effect using a single camera using its smart depth-sensing capability.
The connectivity options supported with the Exynos 9611 are Wifi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, F.M. Radio, LTE Cat.12 3CA modem with 600Mbps Downlink and Cat.13 2CA modem with 150Mbps Uplink. The Wifi module in the processor is an 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO WiFi which provides high throughput for faster connection speeds. For positioning, the processor has a four-mode Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver with the four modes as GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, as well as Galileo so that there is accurate positioning in every part of the world.
