Samsung unveil the Exynos 9810 with image processing and deep learning capabilities

Samsung teased us last week with a Tweet stating that the next Exynos will be more than just a component, and today they have revealed the details of this next Exynos.

The new Exynos 9810 follows on from the trend set by Huawei’s Kirin 970. The Exynos 9810 utilises the 10nm manufacturing technology with a new eight core CPU as its driver — four of these cores are third generation 2.9GHz custom cores and the other four are “optimised for efficiency”. Samsung say the new chipset will double its single-core performance and increase the multicore performance by 40 percent compared to its predecessor.

The chip includes features that allow neural network-based deep learning and stronger security on the devices. The technology allows for accurate and fast image search and recognition / characterisation. In a sign of things to possibly come with the Galaxy S9 line, it also allows for a user’s face to be scanned in 3D for “hybrid face detection”. Adding to the security is a separate security processing unit to safeguard personal data such as facial, iris and fingerprint information.

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. Ben Hur, vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics

As for connectivity, the Exynos 9810 brings the first 1.2Gbps LTE modem with Cat.18 LTE modem support — 1.2Gbps downlink and 200Mbps uplink.

The processor also has dedicated image processing allowing for faster image processing with advanced image stabilisation for images and video.

The Exynos 9810 is already in mass production so the late February release may well be true. Stay tuned tomorrow as Samsung take to the stage in Las Vegas to launch this new processor — there may well be a few leaks.

They couldn’t have picked a worse time to launch this with the Meltdown/Spectre news doing the rounds today.

Double single core? If that also means double single threaded performance, that would be grand.
