Samsung has quietly announced its latest flagship processor Exynos 9 Series 9810. It did not hold any dedicated event or release a press release for the announcement but chose to mention it in a blog post about winning 36 CES 2018 Innovation Awards. This is the reason that exact details regarding the chipset are scarce but we do have a few things to talk about.
To start off, the Exynos 9810 processor is built on the second-generation 10nm FinFET process and features 3rd generation custom CPU cores. It is also said to have upgraded GPU which is likely to be the new Mali-G72 GPU considering that the previous generation Exynos 8890 processor features Mali-G71 GPU. It is currently available on the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 flagships. The chipset also features gigabit LTE modem with industry-first 6CA support.
While Samsung has not said anything officially, we are most likely to see the commercial debut of Exynos 9810 with the launch of the Galaxy S9 flagship next year. This will obviously be one of the variants where the second variant will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.
It is also worth mentioning that since Samsung has officially mentioned about Exynos 9810 processor so early, it means that we might get to see the Galaxy S9 launch sooner than later.
