Samsung is set to launch the new Galaxy Note 10 line later today. And ahead of the big reveal, the company is introducing the heart of the device: the Exynos 9825 processor.
As usual, the Galaxy Note 10 will come with two different processors — Samsung will sell a variant with the Snapdragon 855/855+ in some markets, while the Exynos 9825 will ship in other markets.
Samsung’s Exynos 9825 is the first processor built with its 7nm EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithograph) process that apparently allows for a faster and more power-efficient processor. The octa-core processor comes with Samsung’s custom dual-core CPU cores, as well as a dual-core Cortex-A75 and a quad-core Cortex-A55. It features the Mali-G76 MP12 GPU.
Samsung says the new processor is built for “HyperFast” 5G connectivity thanks to the Exynos Modem 5100, and it also offers up to 2Gbps download speeds thanks to the 4G LTE-Advanced Pro modem.
The processor comes with a built-in NPU for AI processing that can also be used by a phone’s camera to improve its image processing capabilities. On the video side of things, the processor is capable of encoding and decoding 8K UHD video. The chip also features UFS 3.0 storage.
The new Exynos 9825 is a fairly decent upgrade and seems perfect for a device like the Note 10. Samsung will likely share all the stats on the performance and efficiency gains with the new processor at the Note 10 launch later today, so stay tuned for more details.
