As the launch of the Galaxy S10 nears, Samsung will be hosting an event on November 14 for the launch of a new Exynos-branded chipset which will possibly power the next generation flagship Galaxy phone.
Expected to be the Exynos 9820, the processor is highly likely to come inside the Galaxy S10 and later on the Note 10 and will be the direct successor to the Exynos 9810, which powers the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 from earlier this year.
The Exynos 9820 will be Samsung’s first chipset manufactured on the advanced 7nm LPP process that will be produced with the help of EUV lithography technology. The chipset will have a total of eight cores – a combination of dual Exynos M4 cores, dual Cortex A75/A76 cores and four Cortex A55 cores.

The Exynos 9820 is expected to deliver a 20 percent improvement in performance by reducing the power consumption by up to 50 percent at the same time.
The teaser image that Samsung posted on its official Twitter handle reads “intelligence from within”, meaning the South Korean manufacturer will integrate a neural processor inside the new chipset. With the dedicated NPU, the Exynos 9820 will be able to execute complex AI functions as well as machine learning features.
Samsung’s upcoming Exynos chip will also offer support for 5G technologies with the inclusion of an Exynos 5100 modem. the company will offer the 5G-enabled device as a special variant to the upcoming flagship. We’ll know more as we head on toward November 14 when the event will be up and running.
