Samsung had teased last week that it would unveil a new high-end mobile chip soon and today it has officially announced the Exynos 9810 processor. This high-end chip will first be used for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagship smartphones that are due in a couple of months. The company says that the new chip offers 40 percent better performance compared to its predecessor the Exynos 8890.

The Exynos 9810 has a new octacore processor with four high-performance and four efficiency-optimized cores. The chip also features a LTE Cat.18 modem with theoretical download and upload speeds of 1.2Gbps and 200 megabits per second respectively.

Samsung mentions that the new chip has neural network-based deep learning capabilities and also supports depth sensing. This means that the Galaxy S9 can have features like face unlock that will operate in a manner similar to how it does on the iPhone X.

The dedicated image processing capabilities will improve the camera performance while the updated multi-format codec will enable video recording and playback in UHD at 120 frames-per-second.

Samsung confirmed today that it has already started mass producing the Exynos 9810. This fits in nicely with reports that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be launched a month earlier than their predecessors.

It merits mentioning here that some variants of the upcoming flagship smartphones will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor. This includes variants destined for the United States.
