Samsung unveils its next-gen Exynos chip
Samsung has officially taken the wraps off its much-anticipated, next-generation Exynos set of the chipset. The processor will reportedly be powering most of Samsung’s flagship smartphones this year. The very first set of handsets that will come powered by Samsung’s latest Exynos chipset are Galaxy S9 and Note 9 smartphones.
According to a report published by BGR, rumors regarding the Exynos 9810 processor have been around for a pretty long time. Samsung made a mention of it earlier in November last year. At that time, the company did not provide any additional details regarding what exactly the Exynos 9810 chipset will come packed with.
What we now know is that the Exynos 9810 chipset consists of tools, which are pretty similar to Apple’s iPhone X. The octa-core Exynos 9810 chipset, as claimed by the South Korean technology giant, is expected to be speedier in comparison to its predecessor. Its top speed goes up to 2.9GHz. According to Samsung, the chipset’s single-performance has been doubled and its multi-core performance has increased by almost forty percent in comparison to its predecessors. The chipset is expected to be highly energy efficient.
Other features of the Samsung Exynos 9810 chipset include its “ultra-fast LTE” speed system, thanks to the 1.2Gbps LTE modem that powers it. It is safe to assume that the Exynos 9810 chipset is going to allow Samsung to copy the Apple iPhone X smartphone in many ways. “This cutting-edge technology allows the processor to accurately recognize people or items in photos for fast image searching or categorization, or through depth sensing, scan a user’s face in 3D for hybrid face detection,” Samsung announced.
“By utilizing both hardware and software, hybrid face detection enables realistic face-tracking filters as well as stronger security when unlocking a device with one’s face. For added security, the processor has a separate security processing unit to safeguard vital personal data such as facial, iris and fingerprint information,” the firm added.
