Finally, through a news item on its website, Samsung has presented the Exynos 9810 in a stealthy way. This is the first real Exynos of the 9 series although the Galaxy Note 8 processor belongs to this series.
The Exynos 8895 already belonged to the Exynos 9 but this Exynos 9810 is the first to change the numbering completely and will surely feed the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Well, if we start counting everything and it goes in line with what we expected to see from Samsung in 2018.
Exynos 9810: as above but more efficient
The main problem of the Exynos 9810 is that it does not jump out of the FinFET 10 nm process, as it is still on the line of the previous one. However, this second generation of 10 nm modules promises a more refined design that increases power and is able to further reduce energy consumption.
The curious thing is that this Exynos 9810 will be the one that arrives next to the Snapdragon 845 that is mounted in the United States and, unlike what is believed, this Snapdragon 845 will not jump to 7 nm either as the people expected.
Qualcomm has already confirmed that it will not rely on Samsung to manufacture the Snapdragon 855, the first to move into the 7 nm manufacturing process. Samsung expects to manufacture the first Exynos of 8 nm in the next year, which is why its production phase would start at the end of the year.
What’s new on Exynos 9810?
In addition to this power and efficiency improvement, Samsung’s third generation of custom SoCs adds the category 6CA LTE modem, a chip that is capable of downloading files at up to 1.2 Gbps stablely versus the gigabit-per-second speed of the category 5CA modem built into the Galaxy Note 8 Exynos 8895. Samsung is getting ready for the 5G era.
To balance deadlines and conclude that this is the Galaxy S9 processor, we have to remember that Samsung said it would launch a processor that would support the new Cat. 18 6CA by the end of the year and that it would be the chip that would power their next generation smartphones. Adding to this 5G upgrade is probably a higher clock speed or a major improvement in energy management.
And yes, it’s a whole new look because a couple of days ago it has been confirmed that the production of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + will start in December and won’t come with an integrated fingerprint reader on the screen, it will be in the back in a new, more comfortable location. What do you think of the new Exynos? Personally, I think it will have plenty of power and it’s still too early to move on to 7 or 8 nm as people think Qualcomm will, neither of us has the capacity to do it en masse.
