Earlier on Thursday, Samsung has introduced the latest version of Exynos 9 Series with 9810. The latest addition to the company’s in-house processor is built on Samsung’s 10-nanometer FinFET process and can reach clock speeds of 2.9GHz. As previous rumors has speculated that Samsung will use the processor alongside Snapdragon 845 in its upcoming Galaxy S9 smartphone, we also have a rough idea of the features the upcoming flagship will bring to consumers.
Vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics, Ben Hur said that the latest processor’s ultra-fast LTE modem and image processing capabilities will be significant in the development of smartphone in the coming years. In addition to the four cores designed for higher efficiency, four other cores are optimized to provide higher performance. As a result, the single-core performance of the latest processor has almost doubled while multi-core performance has increased by nearly 40 percent.
While the increased performance is certainly worthwhile, the processor might create a real difference for its focus on security. Samsung revealed that the chip can recognize people or items in faster image search and categorization. In addition to providing face detection, Exynos 9810 includes a security processing unit to provide facial, iris and fingerprint protection.
However, the company is yet to confirm if it will use the latest processor with Galaxy S9 or upcoming flagship devices.
