A few months back, Samsung unveiled the Exynos 9810 Octa which powers the Galaxy S9 duo. The most notable feature of this SoC is the ability to record 960 fps slow-motion video recording at 720p(HD) resolution. And now Samsung announces a new Exynos 7 series 9610 SoC with a lower 480 fps slow-motion video recording support but at 1080p(FHD).
The new Samsung Exynos 7 series 9610 SoC is built on the company’s 10nm FinFET process. It is an Octa-core processor consisting of four Cortex-A73 cores running at 2.3Ghz and four Cortex-A53 cores which can reach up to 1.6Ghz. The graphics-intensive task is handled by Mali-G72 which comes integrated with the SoC.
For image processing, the Exynos 9610 comes with a new updated ISP which enables 4K video recording at 120 fps and 480 fps slow-motion video recording at FHD as mentioned earlier. It also comes with a neural network engine which will help in detecting faces, various scenes, and objects. Thus, it will support bokeh effects even with a single camera.
As for connectivity, it features CAT12 3-carrier aggregation LTE modem which supports up to 600 Mbps downlink and 150 Mbps uplink. The SoC also includes other communication technologies such as 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, FM, and 4-mode Global Navigation Satellite System consisting of GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo.
The Samsung Exynos 7 series 9610 will be mass manufactured from second of 2018 and will be powering the upcoming Galaxy A series smartphones.
