Exynos 9810: specs emerge for Galaxy S9 chip

Samsung is now producing the Exynos 9810 chip for use on upcoming devices.

Samsung's new Exynos 9810 processor teases what its Galaxy S9/S9+ and even Note 9 might feature: "hybrid face detection" which scans users' faces in 3D.

Samsung announced its lastest premium processing hardware on Thursday.

According to Samsung, the Exynos 9 Series 9810, as its formally known, will support object recognition with a foundation on "neural network-based deep learning".

The Exynos 9 Series 9810 is our most innovative mobile processor yet, with our third-generation custom CPU, ultra-fast gigabit LTE modem and, deep learning-enhanced image processing. Samsung says, the single core performance score has doubled and multi core score has increased by 40% than its predecessor. "The Exynos 9810 will be a key catalyst for innovation in smart platforms such as smartphones, personal computing and automotive for the coming AI era".

The Exynos 9810 chip is expected to power features similar to Apple's Face ID and Animoji.

According to Samsung, the Exynos 9810 chip will include functions dedicated to housing security details on a smartphone, including facial, iris and fingerprint information. As for construction, the SoC consists of four four custom cores which can reach the speed of 2.9 Ghz at max and another 4 Cortex A55 cores clocked at 1.9 Ghz. Following the successful launch of the industry's first 1.0 gigabits per second (Gbps) LTE modem past year, Samsung again leads the industry with the first 1.2Gbps LTE modem embedded in Exynos 9810.

Inside, we're looking at the Exynos 9810 packing an industry-first Category 18 LTE modem that features 6x carrier aggregation that allows LTE bandwidth to really stretch its wings and reach 1.2Gbps. insane stuff. The 4×4 MIMO (Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) and 256-QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) scheme of the modem help to maximize the transfer rate by utilizing the enhanced Licensed-Assisted Access (eLAA) technology. For reference, Apple iPhone X (A11 Bionic processor) supports maximum of 120 fps slow motion recording in full-HD resolution. Case in point: the MFC will render some 1,024 different tones for each primary color, or 1.07 billion possibilities of colors, a significant upgrade compared to the previous 8-bit color format's 16.7 million colors.
