The latest Exynos 7 SoC is built on a 10nm FinFET process and will be powering the company’s upper mid-range device including the Galaxy A series.
Samsung has unveiled the new Exynos 7 Series 9610 chipset that will be integrated into the company’s upper mid-range smartphones in the future. Though a little less powerful than the Exynos 9810, the latest Exynos 7 SoC sports AI-enabled image processing and video shooting capacities at 480 frames per second and more.
Built on a 10-nanometer FinFET process, the Exynos 9610 is an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A73 cores dedicated to performing at 2.3GHz and the other four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6GHz. The latest System-on-Chip makes use of a Bitfrost-based ARM Mali-G72 graphics unit for an immersive gaming experience on a smartphone.
But the highlight reel of the Exynos 9610 is its enhanced neural network engine that enables face detection, augmented low-light photography and single camera out-focusing. Samsung claims that the face detection algorithm will be able to identify faces even if they’re partially covered. This means the face detection technology will be able to recognize you even if you’re wearing a wig or a hat or eyeglasses.
Not just that, the smart depth sensing algorithm will let users click portrait mode pictures on a single primary camera like what we’ve seen on the Google Pixel 2. Slow-motion videos at 1080p will be able to reach 480 frames per second and if you wish to shoot the same at a clear 4K resolution, you’ll still be able to achieve 120fps.
Based on Cortex-M4F, the chipset runs on low power that also flaunts gesture recognition and context awareness. For connectivity, the Exynos 9610 sports a Cat-13 LTE modem with triple carrier aggregation to provide download speeds of up to 600Mbps and 150Mbps upstream. Also inside the chipset is a Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi 802.11ac 2x2 MIMO and FM Radio Transceiver.
Targeting the next batch of Galaxy A series smartphones, the Exynos 9610 will enter mass production during a later part of 2018 in time for the release of Samsung’s next generation of mid-level smartphones.
