Samsung Galaxy S10: While speculation has been around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845SoC to be the chosen processor for the next flagship Galaxy S10 from Samsung, there were also indications that the South Korean giant may have an ace up its sleeve in the form of an in-house Exynos chipset as well. It now transpires the two variants, Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus will both sport the Exynos 9280 processor.
4thGeneration Processor with Improved Performance
There have been consistent reports on how Samsung will leave no stone unturned to ensure the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones have some unique features to signify the 10th anniversary of the smartphone model. Keeping this in view the main processor was bound to possess superior specifications and offer improved performance in many areas of the new flagship device. One such feature in the Exynos 9820 will be the capability to support 8K video recording. No other chipset released so far has this feature. Areas like the camera and image processing capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy S10 can be expected to be far superior too, with the new processor fitted.
The combination with the ARM Mali-G76 MP12 GPU for graphics will provide a better user experience in rendering colors, images, videos and gameplay settings. Though it might be a bit early in the day to start making comparisons with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, Samsung says the new Exynos 9820 will bring about a healthy performance enhancement by about 40% over its predecessor, the Exynos 9810. And another important parameter the processors are judged on, power efficiency or the ability to restrict the power being drawn by the different apps on the smartphone, it would yield an improvement of 35%. This practically means you will have better response times with apps and games and at the same time, the battery won’t be losing its charge so rapidly.
Basic Specs of the Exynos 9820 to Feature on the Samsung Galaxy S10
8nm is the operative figure while describing the specification of the new processor and it’s called the 8nm Low Power Plus or LPP base on which the chipset is constructed. To enable the chipset to support the AI technology applications on the smartphone, there is a unique integrated neural processing capability built into it. It’s an octa core processor, of which four are Cortex A-55 cores and 2 A-75 cores with the remaining two custom cores. As mentioned, there is the support for 8K video recording, thanks to an advanced image signal processor.
It can be confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus phones to be launched next year will be fitted with the Exynos 9820 processors.
