The next flagship processor that will power the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 will be known as Exynos 9810.
Samsung has just confirmed this via a press release regarding the upcoming Consumer Electronic Show 2018 event that will take place in Las Vegas beginning January 9 to 12. Through its official blog, the South Korean tech giant has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be powered by the new, unannounced Exynos 9 series, specifically the Exynos 9810.
This discovery was made by Galaxy Club, which also confirms that this chipset is based on the 2nd-generation 10nm process, contrary to other reports that have pointed towards the 8nm process. In addition to cramming more computing power into the Exynos 9810, Samsung is on record saying that the GPU has also improved, but the magnitude of this improvement can only be confirmed in real-world tests.
With the Exynos 9810, it also means that Samsung Galaxy S9 will be among the first handsets to ship with the world’s first Cat 18 modems. This modem allows for download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps, but once again, this can only be confirmed by real-world tests.
Samsung is not expected to change its approach with respect to different markets. Previously, we’ve seen a number of markets, including the U.S. and China, receive Sammy phones powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets. The story is expected to be the same for Samsung Galaxy S9, where this Exynos 9810 chipset will only be available in international markets, including Europe, Asia and Africa.
We still have some months before the alleged release date of Samsung Galaxy S9, which should be February 2018 during the MWC event in Barcelona.
