We knew that
the American and certain other versions of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ is going to be
powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and now we also know which Exynos chip
is going to power the international variants of the two handsets. The Exynos
9810 is what we are looking forward to being unveiled at the CES 2018 next week
and it’s going to be a very powerful chip.
maximum clock speed of 2.9GHz on the four performance cores, the Exynos 9810 is
expected to be 40% more powerful than the current gen Exynos 8895 which is
powering the S8, S8+ and the Note 8. The included Mali G-72 GPU will also be
20% more capable as compared to its predecessor, the Mali G-71. AI-based depth
sensing and hybrid face detection via software and hardware are going to be the
highlights of this chip though, rather than just the power. What this means is
that we will probably see a more enhanced version of face detection, similar to
what we have seen in 2017 on the Apple iPhone X. The chip will also have an in-built
1.2 Gbps LTE modem with 1.2Gbps download and 200Mbps upload speed capabilities.
