Samsung Galaxy S10’s Exynos SoC Expected to Be Unveiled on November 14. Samsung has been busy lately due to the inauguration of its much-awaited foldable display. And now, it may be all set to unveil the new Exynos chipset to be used in Galaxy S10 this upcoming November 14.
The company has confirmed that a new Exynos SoC is incoming, and since this processor is expected to be a flagship level offering. It is expected to be used on the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 flagship smartphones next year. While Samsung hasn’t revealed the name of this new chip, it is speculated to be called Exynos 9820, given Samsung’s naming tradition. Samsung’s new chip is reported to be built on the new 7-nanometer LPP (Low Power Plus) process. Samsung teases the chip with the tagline ‘intelligence from within’, hinting at a dedicated AI neural processing unit (NPU) that has been reported earlier as well. Previous reports state that the Exynos 9820 SoC will include a dual-core NPU to offer an enhanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) experience.
The presence of the dedicated coprocessor is reported to handle neural network tasks as well as uplift image and video results. It is said that one of the major use cases of the new SoC will be to “enhance the camera” performance of the Galaxy S10 and is somewhat similar to how the Pixel Visual Core works on Google’s Pixel smartphones. While the chipset will be used in various other future devices too, but it is expected to be first used in the upcoming flagship Galaxy S10.
