The new Exynos 9 Series 9820 SoC will unleash new possibilities for upcoming Samsung devices as it comes with integrated NPU being the biggest highlight of the SoC that will bring enhanced AI capabilities to the future Samsung devices.

The dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit) on the SoC is said to provide seven times faster AI-related functions than its predecessor. The new SoC will also boost multi-core performance by 15 percent, single core performance by up to 20 percent, and boost power efficiency by up to 40 percent when compared to the Exynos 9810.

The SoC comes with Mali-G76 MP12 GPU which is said to offer up to 40 percent improvement in performance or 35 percent enhancement in power efficiency for more immersive, uninterrupted gameplay.

The Exynos 9820 SoC is also said to be providing a Lightning-fast Mobile Connectivity with the Exynos 9820’s LTE-Advanced Pro modem for downloading contents and smooth online gameplay.

Furthermore, the Exynos 9820 supports up to five sensors including an IR sensor, 8K video recording 30fps, 4K UHD video recording at 150fps.

It also supports up to 4K UHD (2160×4096 pixels) and WQUXGA (2400×3840 pixels) displays, UFS 3.0 and UFS 2.1 storage, LPDDR4x memory, up to 22-megapixel rear and front cameras

Samsung claims that the Pro modem supports LTE Category 20, and can offer downlink speed of up to 2.0Gbps with 8x carrier aggregation (CA) and uplink speed of up to 316Mbps.

The Exynos 9820 SoC will also allow Samsung to integrate and run some newly introduced under-display features such as the Under-Display fingerprint sensor, front cameras and other sensors placed under the display.
