Samsung Announces Exynos 9810 Chipset Which Will Power The Galaxy S9
Samsung has announced its new flagship chipset, the Exynos 9810 SoC (System on Chip) in a press release. The chipset will power the upcoming the flagship smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ and even the Galaxy Note9 which is expected to be launched in the third quarter of 2018.
Unlike the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, which is manufactured on the 7nm process, the Exynos 9810 chipset has been manufactured on the 10nm process. This is the same as the Exynos 8895 chipset which powered the 2017 Samsung flagship smartphone lineup.
Samsung says that the Exynos 9810 processor has “3rd-generation custom CPU cores, upgraded GPU, and gigabit LTE modem with industry-first 6CA support.” Earlier this year, Samsung had introduced the 6CA modem and had promised that the 6CA modem would be included into its next generation mobile processing unit. Hence, as it promised the Exynos 9810 features the new and improved 6CA modem.
At the time of unveiling of the 6CA modem, Samsung had said:
“Mobile processor adopting the new Cat.18 6CA-supported LTE modem technology is expected to be in mass production by the end of this year.”
The announcement of the Exynos 9810 chipset falls perfectly in line with the above statement.
