Samsung’s latest mobile chipset has a neat trick up its sleeve

There’s a new System-on-Chip on the block, and it comes from Samsung. 

Samsung has announced the chipset that’s set to power most of its upcoming mid-to-high-end smartphones, including the refreshed Galaxy A range – and it doesn’t look like it’s going to disappoint, with an Image Signal Processor (IPS) that supports slow-motion video recording at 480 frames per second headlining the show.

Exynos 9610

Built using Samsung’s second-generation 10-nanometer FinFET fabrication process – like the Exynos 9810 chipset found on the Galaxy S9 – the Exynos 9610 features an octa-core setup, comprising of four high-performance and four low-energy corses, as well as a new Neural Network Engine for enhanced face detection.

In addition, the Exynos 9610 features an embedded all-network LTE modem that supports Cat.12 3CA (carrier aggregation) at 600 megabits per second (Mbps) for downlink and Cat.13 2CA at 150Mbps for uplink. All the usual connectivity options, including Bluetooth 5.0, FM Radio and GPS are, of course, also baked in.

“The Exynos 7 Series 9610 is our latest mobile processor that delivers on added power and speed,” said Ben Hur, VP of System LSI Marketing at Samsung. “But more importantly, it sets a new performance standard for high-end devices with its deep learning vision-image processing solution and slow-motion capabilities.”
