Samsung has finally announced the Exynos 9 Series 9820 SoC, just like what the company said before. The Exynos 9820 SoC is the successor of Exynos 9810 SoC that powers the Galaxy S9 series and the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone. The new processor is based on the 8nm LPP (Low Power Plus) FinFET process with an integrated NPU as is its main highlight.
The Exynos 9820 SoC is expected to power up the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy Note 10 flagship smartphones that will be launched next year. Given it is based on 8nm LPP (Low Power Plus) FinFET process, the company claims that the processor reduces power consumption by 10 percent compared to 10nm LPP process. Aside from that higher advantage, the Exynos 9820 SoC also optimizes the power consumption of CPU and GPU by reducing the operating voltage, idle, and leakage power.
It was built based on Samsung’s 4th generation custom designed CPU cores having an innovative tri-cluster architecture. The Exynos 9820 SoC has two Cortex-A75 custom cores for optimal performance and four Cortex-A55 cores for greater efficiency. The processor seems to be promising in terms of efficiency.
Its NPU integration that has been mentioned earlier allows the processor to perform AI-related functions seven times faster than its predecessor that enhances the AI capabilities of a mobile device. An NPU integration’s importance is gradually increasing especially these days wherein AI tasks are becoming relevant in every smartphone.
The Exynos 9820 SoC is equipped with an LTE-Advanced Pro modem supporting the LTE Category 20. Samsung claims that it can offer a downlink speed of up to 2.0Gbps with 8x carrier aggregation (CA) and uplink speed of up to 316Mbps. Aside from that, the modem supports 4×4 Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MIMO), 256-QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation), and Enhanced Licensed-Assisted Access (eLAA) technology which further enhances its connection capabilities.
Exynos 9820 SoC comes with the Mali-G76 MP12 graphics processor, which is said to have more execution units and double channels. It also offers 40 percent better performance and 35 percent more energy efficient compared to the GPU in Exynos 9810.
The chipset has advanced ISP supporting up to five sensing elements, including infrared sensors for facial recognition features. It also supports 8K 30fps and 4K 120fps and also supports 10bit HEVC/H.264/VP9 codec for better video recording, and 4K resolution support for a richer display.
The Samsung Exynos 9829 SoC is expected to start its mass production by the end of the year, and it is said to power up Samsung’s upcoming flagships such as the Galaxy S10. Stay tuned with TechnoCodex and we will bring you all of its updates.
