Wait, is that a new processor?
Samsung hasn’t announced its new Exynos 9 processor officially but it mentions the unannounced Exynos 9810 as one of the award-winning products. It’s described as the company’s latest flagship processor with 3rd-generation custom CPU cores, upgraded GPU and gigabit LTE modem with 6CA support. Samsung has also revealed that it’s built on the 2nd generation 10nm process technology.
We can certainly expect to hear more about the Exynos 9810 in the days to come. After all, this flagship chip will be powering Samsung’s high-end devices next year.
