Samsung has officially revealed the chipset that will power its forthcoming Galaxy S10, promising improved AI smarts and faster performance.
The Exynos 9820 can handle AI functions seven times faster than the processor found in this year’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9, with multi core performance up by 15%.
Samsung also says that power efficiency is up by 40%, suggesting that this chip could help eke out precious extra minutes from whatever battery it chooses to include in the Galaxy S10.
Those hoping for a 5G version of the Galaxy S10 are likely to be disappointed, however, with Samsung only offering a 4G LTE modem as part of its new chip.
The Galaxy S10 is due to be revealed at Mobile World Congress in February 2019. The handset is expected to come in three variants, including a ‘lite’ model aimed at Apple’s new iPhone XR.
Samsung has had a busy month, with the Korean giant also unveiling a prototype of its Galaxy F folding phone at its developers conference in San Francisco.
