"The Exynos 9810 will be a key catalyst for innovation in smart platforms such as smartphones and personal computing for the coming AI era", said Ben Hur, vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics. Samsung is also tapping neural networks to improve deep learning algorithms, meaning Exynos 9810-powered devices will be even better at recognizing people and specific elements in photos. ideal for the Central Intelligence Agency.

Now, it will be interesting to see how this chip performs against Apple A11 Bionic SoC which is being used by Apple iPhone X.

By utilizing both hardware and software, hybrid face detection enables realistic face-tracking filters as well as stronger security when unlocking a device with one's face.

Now in mass production, the Exynos 9810 introduces sophisticated features to enhance user experiences with neural network-based deep learning and stronger security on the most advanced mobile devices.

Samsung already gave information regarding their new generation Exynos 9810 back in November 2017. The octa-core CPU has four powerful 3rd generation custom cores capable of reaching 2.9 gigahertz (GHz) and additional four cores, optimized for efficiency. The SoC also comes with improved cache memory as well as wider pipeline to increment the performance. As for GPU is concerned, the SoC now comes with newer ARM Mali-G72 MP18.

Meanwhile, the advanced MFC (Multi-Format Codec) contains 10-bit HEVC (H.265), H.264, and VP9 codecs that offer 64 times more colours than the conventional 8-bit colour format. Another highlight of the processor is its camera handling capabilities. The new SoC also supports 4K UHD video recording and playback with the frame rate up to 120fps.

Samsung has kicked off CES 2018 a little earlier this year with a quick reveal of their next-gen mobile processor, Exynos 8910, which will be a direct competitor to Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 845 that the company detailed last month in Hawaii.

The Exynos 9810 is massively efficient too, being built using Samsung's 10nm FinFET process, and it will also pack in support for ultra-fast LTE, though the main event will neural network-based learning and stronger security for the handsets it powers. These new SoCs have been created to power the next-generation Android flagship devices that will launch in 2018.
