Samsung talks up the Exynos 9820 ahead of Galaxy S10 launch


Last updated: January 24th, 2019 at 19:02 UTC+02:00

With each new Galaxy S flagship comes a new Exynos chipset, and the Exynos 9820 will debut alongside the Galaxy S10 next month. Samsung announced the Exynos 9820 in November last year and has now posted an article on the Samsung Newsroom that talks up the various features of the chip.

Exynos 9820 features detailed

As expected, the first thing Samsung is highlighting is the dedicated neural processing unit (NPU) on the Exynos 9820 that will help the Galaxy S10 perform artificial intelligence tasks faster than the Exynos 9810. It’s something Bixby should benefit from when it comes to the speed with which it responds to commands, with Samsung quoting up to seven times faster processing of AI functions compared to the 9810. The NPU will also allow the Galaxy S10 to carry out AI tasks with “lower latency, better power efficiency, and stronger security than when utilizing the cloud.”

Samsung also mentions how the Exynos 9820 can power up to five camera sensors (vs four on the 9810), a nice little hint at the triple rear and dual front camera setup the Galaxy S10+ will come with. Samsung is talking up the fact that the 9820 can record 8K video as well, but this is one feature the Galaxy S10 may not have since the Snapdragon 855 doesn’t support recording video in 8K resolution, and the company probably won’t offer such an important feature for the Exynos variant when it can’t work on the Snapdragon model that will be sold in markets like the US and China.

Other highlights of the Exynos 9820 include up to 25 percent faster single-core performance vs the 9810, 40 percent improvement in performance or 35 percent enhancement in power efficiency  for GPU-intensive tasks, and higher power efficiency in general thanks to the 8nm manufacturing process. You also get enhanced security thanks to what Samsung calls a physically unclonable function (PUF), a “digital fingerprint” for encryption of important data and information.
