Samsung Exynos 9820 officially announced

Samsung has announced the Exynos 9820 (aka Exynos 9 Series 9820) chipset as the successor to the Exynos 9810 and set to power the next generation of Samsung smartphones. The biggest improvement on the Exynos 9820 has to be the inclusion of a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit).

Unfortunately, Samsung hasn't moved onto the 7-nanometer architecture for their Exynos 9820, instead relying on an intermediary 8 nm LPP (Low Power Plus) FinFET production process. While Samsung has already begun work on a 7nm EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography) chipset, it doesn't look like the company is ready to use this process on their devices.

Two custom 4th generation cores made up of a pair of Cortex-A75 will handle “ultimate processing power”, while four modest Cortex-A55 processors will offer greater efficiency for superior overall performance that lasts. This should result in a performance improvement from 15% to 20% compared to the Exynos 9810, while power efficiency gets a massive boost of up to 40 percent.

The Exynos 9820 will support up to five camera sensors and 8K video recording, making us wonder if Samsung will use a setup of this type on the Galaxy S10 or the Galaxy Note 10 next year.

The Exynos 9820 features the new Mali-G76 MP12 GPU which should be a substantial upgrade over the G72 MP18 from last year. The new GPU aims to offer “more impressive, uninterrupted gameplay” with 40 percent performance enhancements and around 35 percent improved power efficiency.

The Exynos 9820 also uses an LTE-Advanced Pro modem with LTE Category 20 support. The CPU architecture has been revised to include three clusters instead of two.
