Samsung Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoC Launched, Based on 10nm FinFET Process

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Samsung unveils the Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoC
  • It is likely to debut on the company’s Galaxy S9
  • The chipset can be expected to feature on phones next year

Samsung has announced a new flagship mobile processor in the Exynos 9 series, built on the 10nm process. As is traditional with such unveils, it can be expected that the new new Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoC will be the processor powering the company’s next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S9.

The Samsung Exynos 9810 packs the company’s third-generation custom CPU cores and also comes with an upgraded GPU. Samsung is also touting support for Gigabit LTE modem which can offer what Samsung calls industry’s first 6CA (carrier aggregation) support. Samsung says that the new Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoC has been built on second-generation 10nm process technology.

The Exynos 9 Series is said to be the company’s first processor chipset built on the 10-nanometre FinFET process technology.

The South Korean company earlier this year unveiled its premium application processor, the Exynos 9 Series 8895. Some of the highlights of the Exynos 9 Series 8895 processor were embedding of a Gigabit LTE modem that can support five carrier aggregation, or 5CA. It supports LTE Cat. 16 with download speeds of up to 1Gbps and upload speeds of up to 150Mbps (Cat. 13). The chipset was used in the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ as well as the company’s Galaxy Note 8 phablet.

Rumours have pointed to early next year launch of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC which could be seen as the competitor to the Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoC. The Snapdragon 845 SoC is said to be built on a new faster, more efficient 7nm fabrication process. Furthermore, the new Qualcomm SoC is also said to debut on the Galaxy S9 next year.

For Samsung’s upcoming flagships, the company is widely expected to retain Infinity Displays which allow the 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch screens to come with a relatively compact factor. The upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones are rumoured to use the same screen sizes as well as the same curved design first seen on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
