Samsung's next Exynos chipset is coming on November 14 with 'intelligence from within'
The foldable design-focused Samsung Developer Conference is behind us, the Galaxy S10 is still several months away, and the same probably goes for the company’s visionary next mid-range devices.

But the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer is setting the stage for yet another headline-grabbing event next week. No prizes for guessing what will be unveiled on November 14, as the tech giant is using its Exynos social media accounts to build buzz around this particular announcement.

It’s (almost) time for a new ultra-high-end smartphone SoC, and the mysterious Exynos 9810 sequel will need to take on Apple and Huawei’s latest heavyweights. Like the A12 Bionic and Kirin 980, the Exynos 9820 (unconfirmed name) is widely expected to use a super-advanced 7 nanometer node.

That basically means the upgraded chip should occupy less space inside the Galaxy S10 (or at least a version of it) than previous flagship processors on flagship phones while greatly improving both raw speed and energy efficiency.

The “next Exynos” is today teased with an “intelligence from within” tagline that may look awfully cryptic at first glance. But it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out a Neural Processing Unit or, put simply, a dedicated AI chip will be part of this state-of-the-art semiconductor package.

A 5G-enabled Exynos 5100 modem is also pretty much guaranteed, although not all Galaxy S10 models are rumored to support the blazing fast new mobile connectivity standard.

And because of licensing agreements between Qualcomm and Samsung, the US can't get the sweet Exynos via traditional sales channels.

Those are on CDMA modems actually, and since US carriers are going to phase out CDMA very soon( with them already supporting LTE and VoLTE over GSM ), it's might become a reality sooner than later. The Exynos processors should have something to distinguish themselves though. Except the 7420 on S6 and 8890 on S7 being significantly better than SD 810 and 820, Snapdragon chipsets have generally been better. The 9810 this year was especially horrible and a fail(it along with poor updates prevented me from getting an S9+), so I'm not sure if it's a good thing that Samsung is going with Exynos. Huawei is in the same boat, but at least they use their flagship chipset in their midrange phones as well, so at least those phones become really competitive.

It was not Horrible by any means imo. It just couldn't be ahead of SD 845 as it did with previous iterations and you started blabbering horrible & all? Using a Exynos Note 9 & it is hella fast & beast in tasks.

Anandtech tested it and the Samsung kernel was so bad that despite being a superior chip with better architecture, it was slower than the exynos 8895 from the S8 in most tasks. It might be fast enough for you, but from a CPU point of view, it's a failure. Pretty much all mobile CPUs are great as of now, but a CPU that's slower and consumes more battery on a $1000 device is doing no good to anybody here. If I'm paying that kind of money, I want the best CPU available.

Nice! Too bad it'll never come to the US, at least not for now.

Is this the same as Neural Engine from Apple?

Could be similar since both rely on ARM architecture with latest processing fab.

Could be ARM's, Cambricon's (like Huawei), Intel (like Google), Cadence, Imagination Technologies, CEVA, or custom (like Apple or Qualcomm or Nvidia)
