Samsung has unveiled its latest flagship processor — the Exynos 9825, which is built on the new 7nm process. This is a significant update to the SoC when compared to the Exynos 9820 chipset which was built on an 8nm process and was featured in the current flagship Galaxy S10 series. It is believed that the upcoming flagship Galaxy Note line-up will be featuring the new flagship Exynos 9825 SoC.
Samsung appears to be following the footsteps of Qualcomm by launching two flagship chipsets in a year for its top-tier smartphones. Qualcomm had also brought two flagships SoCs — the Snapdragon 855 and the 855+, which was launched recently. As for the new Exynos 9825 SoC developed by Samsung is concerned, it is said to be the industry’s first mobile SoC which is built on 7nm EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) processing technology. The new flagship SoC with this new process is claimed to be more faster and power-efficient processor.
The Exynos 9825 SoC comes with integrated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) to improve AI-powered photography and AR experience. This should be bringing better photogrpaghy capabilities in the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 line-up than the Galaxy S10 series. The new octa-core Exynos 9825 processor comes with — two Cortex A75 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores, which are believed to handle better performance and efficiency respectively.
To handle gaming, the Exynos 9825 SoC has the new Mali-G76 MP12 GPU that promises to deliver faster clock speeds and powerful graphics performance while gaming. Morevover, the Exynos 9825 SoC comes with 5G capabilites with Exynos Modem 5100, developed by Samsung alongside the conventional 4G LTE capabilities. The chipset is said to be supporting download speeds of up to 2Gbps as well.
The new Exynos 9825 SoC confirms the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 camera, which is likely to be featuring a primary sensor (22MP) paired with a telephoto lens, a wide-angle and an ultra-wide-angle lens and also a 3D depth sensor as well, wherein there could be 16MP+16MP rear cameras. The SoC also supports a 22MP front-facing selfie shooter as well. As for video recording, the Exynos 9825 SoC can handle up to 8K Ultra HD video encoding and decoding in multi-format codec (MFC). This could possibly mean that the upcoming flagship Note 10 series could also be supporting 8K UHD resolution i.e., 8K@30fps video recording.
As for storage options, the Exynos 9825 SoC can support UFS 3.0 & 2.1 storages alongside the LPDDR4x RAM. The latest Exynos 9825 SoC can also support displays up to 4K UHD (4096×2160) resolution as well. It is still unclear on whether the new Galaxy Note 10 series would be featuring these new displays. Nonetheless, the Galaxy Note 10 launch would commence in a day or so. Hence we could expect what the new flagship Exynos 9825 SoC brings to the table with new Samsung flagship smartphones.
