Samsung has announced the Exynos 9820 chipset as the successor for the Exynos 9810 SoC that powers the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 smartphones. It is very likely to power the Galaxy S10 series arriving next year.
The Exynos 9820 chipset is built with 8nm FinFET manufacturing process. The predecessor Exynos 9810 was a 10nm chipset. The Exynos 9820 features two customer CPU cores for topnotch performance, two Cortex A75 CPU cores for performance and quad-core Cortex A75 for efficiency. The intelligent task scheduler can improve the multi-core performance by 15 percent. Compared to the predecessor, the new chipset is 40 percent chipset and offers 20 percent better single-core performance.
For graphics, the Exynos 9820 is equipped with Mali-G76 cores. The NPU unit of the Exynos 9820 is 7 times faster than its predecessor. The LTE Advanced Pro offers 2 Gbps download speeds. It also supports 8x CA and 316 Mps upload speeds. The other features of the chipset include 4×4 MIMO, 256-QMA and eLAA.
The mass production of the Exynos 9820 will begin by the end of this year. It is very likely that the SoC will be ready by the time Galaxy S10 gets unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 event in February next year.
