Samsung on Thursday, ahead of CES 2018, announced the new Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoC built on its second-generation 10nm FinFET process technology. Samsung says that single-core performance is enhanced two-fold, while multi-core performance has increased by around 40% over the previous-gen Exynos 9.
The Exynos 9810 is powered by four of the company's third generation custom CPU cores clocked at 2.9 GHz.
Furthermore, the chipset introduces several new features to enhance user experience with neural network-based deep learning and stronger security on the smartphones. It also comes with the hybrid face detection feature that provides realistic face-tracking filters and stronger security while unlocking the device with one's face. A 1.2 Gbps LTE modem baked into the chip will allow for "ultra-fast" LTE speeds, as well up to 6x carrier aggregation. The Cat.18 LTE modem supports a maximum download speed of 1.2 Gbps.
Such silicon highlight declarations aren't generally ensured to make it into genuine gadgets, yet given how firmly adjusted Samsung's Exynos chip improvement is with its Galaxy S discharge rhythm, we can most likely be more certain than expected that we're taking a gander at a somewhat definite secret for what's to come in Samsung's next leader.
New projects from Samsung's lab include a personal directional speaker and smart glasses that use the Gear VR headset.

With this, the Exynos 9810 processor will allow Samsung owners to multitask effortlessly such as transitioning between mobile apps with faster loading speed. The Exynos 9810 will be able to record 4K footage at 120fps - which beats both the iPhone X and the Snapdragon 845 which can achieve 60fps at a 4K resolution. The chip also includes a co-processor which would be used to store data like fingerprint, iris, and facial recognition information.
Samsung has started production of its Exynos 9810 mobile processor with faster gigabit LTE modem and machine learning capabilities, the company announced.
Another analyst, Rob Enderle of Enderle Group, told eWEEK that Samsung's processor announcement comes at a time when a key rival, Apple, is a bit on the ropes.
