The Huawei 7nm HiSilicon Kirin 980 is the current champion of Android SoCs, but it looks like the latest Exynos chip is all ready to challenge it. While that may or may not happen, at least there is no doubt about the fact that the 8nm Exynos 9820 is going to be significantly more powerful than the current gen Exynos 9810. In fact, it will even be able to support 8K video recording, which is something that may not have much use as of now, but it definitely highlights the prowess of the upcoming SoC. Check out some of the highlighted features of the chip below, as showcased by Samsung during the unveiling earlier.
· Octa-core processor with 2 high-power custom cores, 2 medium power Cortex-A75 cores and 4 low power Cortex A55 cores
· 15% increase in multi-core performance and 20% increase in single-core performance, as compared to the Exynos 9810
· 40% better power-efficiency, as compared to the Exynos 9810
· 8nm process, dedicated neural processing unit (AI) and UFS 2.1 and 3.0 support
· No support for 5G
· Support for five cameras in total and 8K video recording
This is good news for those that are waiting for the Galaxy S10 to upgrade, especially since it all but confirms the fact that there will indeed be three rear cameras and two front cameras on the Galaxy S10+ in 2019.
