Samsung today quietly launched a new chipset, the Exynos 9810. The company announced the new chipset during its Consumer Electronics Show. Additionally, the company said that the Exynos 9810 is a part of the Exynos 9 series of chipsets, making it the second chipset under the Exynos 9 series after the Exynos 8895 which powers the Galaxy Note 8, S8 and S8 Plus.
The company also said that the new chipset comes with third-generation custom CPU cores along with a GPU which is much better than the ARM Mali-G71 which is the one used alongside the Exynos 8895 in the Galaxy Note 8. Interestingly, they didn’t specify any name for the GPU. However, the company did reveal that the chipset is using CAT 18 modem which comes with 6CA support, which is Samsung’s proprietary technology announced earlier this year, featuring the ability to reach peak download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps. The company didn’t reveal anything else about the new chipset.
It is being expected that the chipset uses an octa-core processor (two quad-core clusters tasked with achieving either peak performance or optimal efficiency).
The company didn’t mention anything about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone lineup during the event. Interestingly, many tech publications are stating that the Exynos 9810 chipset which has been launched today will be the SoC (System on Chip) which will be powering the smartphone series outside of the United States. Previously, it was being reported that the new smartphone lineup might come with chipsets which are based on either 7nm or 8nm technology.
