This new Exynos 9820 processor features a fourth-generation custom CPU, 2Gbps LTE Advanced Pro modem, and an enhanced neural processing unit (NPU). Most Galaxy S or Note phones have stuck to one or two cameras on the back, but ever since Samsung unveiled the four-camera Galaxy A9 in October, it seems like the company is ready to start putting more cameras in its flagship devices. In terms of performance, the new chip should be 20% speedier in single core tasks and 15% faster in multi-core tasks than its predecessor (that would be the Exynos 9810, launched in January).
Samsung has just announced the next generation of its flagship Exynos System-on-Chip (SoC), the Exynos 9820. The firm repeatedly signaled it's not interested in adopting such cutouts but it's also short of alternatives that would still allow it to continue improving the screen-to-body ratio of its devices.
On the graphics side, Samsung embedded the latest Mali-G76 cores into the Exynos 9820.
At the conference last week, the company stated that the phone will be mass produced, but it's suspected that the high price point will drive away potential customers no matter how impressive the Infinity Flex Display is. This would make the sensor more accurate than current in-display sensors - not to mention easier to use.
The series itself is expected to consist of three models, with the most affordable one reportedly marking Samsung's return to flat screens in the high-end segment of the market.
The Galaxy S10 will apparently feature in-display fingerprint scanner which again, not exactly surprising given its rising popularity among smartphone manufacturers. However, Evan Blass has a solid track record with unreleased Samsung hardware, so we wouldn't be surprised if this was all eerily accurate.
