Samsung has just announced its latest mobile processor, the Exynos 9 . In its 8895 version, this eight-core chip is called to be the heart of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 , also the other high-end devices in the house.
But we already anticipated that the Samsung phone had been left with a major roll of the Snapdragon 835, so the story repeats itself and there will be two 'hardware versions' of the phone circulating around the planet.
Which will be the best option? In practice little will be noticed I think, what is important to know is that the new Exynos 9 (8895) is conceived with technology of manufacture of 10nm (FinFET), which is the same used in the Snapdragon 835: you have to know Both companies have worked together to develop the chip.
In theory, those 10nm open the door to better performance, both in power and resource consumption. Samsung says it is 27% more powerful than a 14nm chip - for example, Snapdragon 821-, and is up to 40% less glutton.
Entering the inside of the Exynos 8895 we find four cores that are designed by Samsung, and four other - low consumption - type ARM Cortex-A53. The graph is a Mali-G71 ARM. We are told that he is prepared to play with the 4K and virtual reality, the typical expected.
Screen support opens doors to new resolutions, such as WQUXGA (3,840 x 2,400) or 4K UHD (4,096 x 2,160). Turning to connectivity, there is talk of a new modem with five levels of LTE aggregation, capable of managing 1 Gbps downloads, and uploads up to 150 Mbps.
Hardware for a better camera
If we talk about resolution, the Exynos 9 can with cameras up to 28 megapixels , considering the possibility of playing with a dual camera, but for the Galaxy S8 does not expect this type of configuration.
The interesting thing about the video part is that it will enable the cameras to work with 4K information streams with up to 120 images per second. There is a process unit solely for tracking moving objects, Vision Processing Unit (VPU).
To improve security and manage it at the hardware level, the new chip has a separate processing unit that handles the needs of the fingerprint sensor, also iris recognition. You know, make it the safest and fastest device for mobile payments.
Samsung announces that the Exynos 9 Series 8895 is now in production, we have no choice but to think that it goes directly to Galaxy S8 and its Galaxy S8 + variant, for the international versions of the same. Usually Qualcomm hardware usually goes to American phones.
