New Samsung flagship smartphones are all-set to launch which are using Samsung‘s new Exynos 9 processor, what are they? First of all what the Samsung processor “Exynos 9 8895” brings with it to vision processing to mobile, that we should learn. Here are the details.
No way you think just because the Galaxy S8 is being delayed doesn’t mean the manufacturer also has to delay its new Exynos processor. Perhaps months before it lands on any consumer product, Samsung is revealing the Exynos 9 Series, specifically the Exynos 8895 application process. It’s obviously the first one to build on the latest 10nm FitFET process. While the same chip in itself is already interesting from a computing standard, it also hints at the features that we can expect on the upcoming Galaxy S8 handset.
However, the Exynos 8895 is not the first 10nm mobile processor available in the market. And it isn’t Samsung’s first 10nm FinFET chip either. The distinction actually belongs to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 which has gone into production last October, here are those additions to check out. Following the LG G6 news, then, you’ll probably be aware of this chip is also being made by Samsung on behalf of Qualcomm, hence a period of exclusively until April.
As per raw features, the Exynos 8895 has clocked at an Octa-Core arrangement with four power efficient Cortex-A53 cores and four of Samsung’s own custom-designed ARM cores. These eight-CPU cores are managed by the heterogeneous system architecture, which basically means any number and combination of cores can be at work at any given time period. On the GPU, or graphics side, the processor makes use of an ARM Mali-G71 chip, which is capable of handling 4K UHD content for VR experiences.
Another two features in particular to justice this processor are more interesting in light of the still to be announced Galaxy S8. The first is a one of kind LTE modem built into Exynos 8895. Additionally, it’s being a Gigabit LTE modem, it also supports five-carrier aggregation (5CA) that promises to deliver 1Gbps downlink with 5CA and 150Mbps uplink using the usual two-carrier aggregation (2CA).
In fact the processor has an embedded “Vision Processing Unit” or VPU. This unit is in charge of recognizing and analyzing images and also used for machine vision technology. If anything seems to confirm previous leaks saying that Samsung;s Bixby virtual assistant will be able to identify real world objects using the Galaxy S8’s camera.
