The processor is in mass production and is expected to be launched with Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Hybrid face detection would rely on both software and hardware to tap advanced face-tracking filters and enhance security for devices with facial recognition locks. CPU will have four third-generation custom cores, which are relegated to power-intensive tasks and can operate at a maximum clock speed of 2.9 (GHz), with another cluster of four cores optimized for efficiency.

Right on schedule, Samsung has unveiled lots of additional information about its next generation Exynos 9810 mobile application processor. Big cores mainly perform complex computation with support by little cores, while little cores perform simple computation.

Samsung has developed the Exynos 9810 in order to better compete with Apple's iPhone X. The new Exynos 9810 leverages a bunch of new technologies that bring a 40% multi-core performance boost over the chip that was used in the Galaxy S8.

Clearly, Samsung is teasing some new features that may appear on the Galaxy S9 here.

In addition to processing performance improvements, Samsung said that the Exynos 9810 will also have the industry's first Category 18 LTE modem, offering aggregation for up to six carriers.

Samsung has infused parts of the processor with increased neural-network learning technology including a separate security processing unit.

This will enable it to support download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps, and upload speeds of 200Mbps.

As detailed earlier, the Exynos 9810 is made on Samsung's 10nm LPP FinFET manufacturing process, which allowed Samsung to boost performance by around 10 percent or lower power consumption by 15 percent. Therefore, users can enjoy streaming of high quality virtual reality contents in real time at anytime and anywhere. Samsung says the new SoC supports 120 fps slow motion video recording in UHD resolution. Case in point: the MFC will render some 1,024 different tones for each primary color, or 1.07 billion possibilities of colors, a significant upgrade compared to the previous 8-bit color format's 16.7 million colors. "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. Today, only a few days before CES 2018 opens, Samsung officially took the wraps off the Exynos 9810 which it says is now in production.
