Samsung Exynos 9810 chipset model leaks, may end up powering the Galaxy S8 and S8+

Samsung teased a mysterious "Cloud 9" Exynos on Friday that is "coming soon," and, while it's easy to assume that this teaser is a prelude to an upcoming 9-series Exynos line, no specific chipset models were referenced. Given that the 9-series Exynos will likely find its way in the Galaxy S8 and S8+, our curiosity about the exact versions is utterly warranted, and now we have our answer.

The LinkedIn profile of an intern at Samsung’s R&D Institute just divulged that he had been working on a yet-unannounced Exynos 9810 processor, where "Exynos is a series of ARM-based System-on-Chips (SoCs) developed and manufactured by Samsung Electronics." Talk about leaking the whole operation. According to industry representatives, there will be two versions, dubbed Exynos 9810V and Exynos 9810M, with an 18-core, or 20-core Mali-G71 GPUs, respectively. 

Samsung's own Mongoose core is expected to take the brunt of the work there, but in its second generation, as opposed to M1 in last year's chipsets, and, needless to say the Exynos 9810 should be done with the new 10nm manufacturing process for extra power and endurance. Given Friday's teaser and this leak, Samsung should be announcing its new Exynos 9-series processor very soon, perhaps even this week at the MWC expo, and we will be there, all ears, and ready to fill you in on all the important chippery details.

Nope. Crappy Snapdragon will be... Only Europe and Asia will be getting Exynos. I'm super excited. The S7 8890 is very fast comparing it to last year's S6 Exynos...

9810? seriously? what's with those random huge number in exynos line? :-/ what name they will give for their next year's flagship processor? exynos 10810?

The tag line should rather be "Over 9000..."

What's about support recording 60p 4K? Snappy S835 supports playing only.

I don't think many people use even 4k 30 fps due to the huge file sizes. I personally record at 1080p 60 fps since most people don't have 4k screens but they do appreciate the smoother playback. I think 4k60 won't be here very soon due to the slow 4k adoption in consumer TVs and monitors. We are seeing a major push towards 4k HDR though. All I want to say is that they will not put a block if there is no need for it. And since S8 will use SD835 too, they will definitely not put 4k60 encoding on Exynos since they can't discriminate on features based on variant.

It's more so about the option being there. My friend for one insists on recording 60 fps, and he'd like a step up from 1080p/60. No one's gonna record in 4K/60 all the time, but the option there is nice. I for one will be more excited to see OIS+EIS on 4K/30fps video.

The option will be there when there is demand for it. These kind of things require a separate encoding block on the chip. They won't do it unless there is a demand since it's not economical.

Are you CPU GPU specialist? You seem to know alot...

14. Tyrion_Lannister unregistered

I wouldn't go as far as calling myself a specialist, but I guess I know more than most. Also I work as a programmer for a day job. Hence, I know how these things work right down to kernel level and have done courses on processor architecture.

Have you started your blog...? If yes then kindly share it's link...

15. Tyrion_Lannister unregistered

The blog is live for a few months now. It's just that I'm being lazy to not post much content on there. I will start it soon though, in a couple days time when my exams get over. It's just a bit hard to know where to start and what articles to write. Also don't know how to promote it. I guess I'll just go for it and the ideas will come automatically. Here's a link to the homepage: It's pretty low quality blog for now, but just give me a couple days.

Yay, it's shaping up to be a monster SoC. Can't wait, but gotta wait... anyways.
