Some hours before Samsung is set to launch the Galaxy Note 10 line in the United States, manufacturer officially introduced the chipset which will power the Samsung phones outside the United States. The Exynos 9825 SoC is built at Samsung’s own manufacturing facilities by using the 7nm EUV process.
By using this process, more transistors set inside this new chip in compared to the number employed in the 8nm Exynos 9820. This can improve the performance by 20% to 30% while the Exynos 9825 consumes 30% to 50% less power. The full form of EUV is extreme-ultraviolet lithography. EUV is a technology which uses the ultraviolet beams to silicon in fine details to allow more precise placement of circuitry under the chip.
According to Samsung, the Exynos 9825 is same as the Exynos 9820, it is equipped with two Samsung custom CPUs, two Cortex-A75 CPUs for the complex works and four Cortex-A55 CPUs for the lower tax demands. The graphics process unit (GPU) which is on the chip is the ARM Mali-G76 MP12 (also the same on the Exynos 9820).
The A-75 cores and GPU will run faster than similar components on the Exynos 9820; faster clock speeds and the use of the 7nm EUV helped the new chip run faster in tests against its predecessor. An integrated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) will have in the chip to help drive Artificial Intelligence features for the smartphone cameras allowing for the recognition of objects to optimize the photos.
It is also used to learn user patterns and helps to pre-load apps faster. The Neural Processing Unit (NPU) will also support the Augmented Reality capabilities over a handset.
Outside the U.S. the Samsung’s Exynos 9825 Chipset will be Powering the Galaxy Note 10 series
Samsung’s Exynos 9825 also comes with the Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 3.0, which uses less energy as compare to UFS 2.1 and it has twice the bandwidth. It can also run at high temperatures, which is important considering all the wishes thrown on smartphones nowadays. The UFS 3.0 has a gradual read speed of approximately 2280 MB/sec as compared to about 800 MB/sec with the UFS 2.1.
For the modems on the Exynos 9825, which is an integrated 4G LTE-Advanced Pro modem with the 8x Carrier Aggregation. The latter adds carriers to create larger data channels in terms of increasing the capacity on a network. This is one of the devices used by wireless providers to increase data speeds.
While pairing with the Samsung’s Exynos 5100 5G modem (supports both the mmW and sub-6GHz 5G airways), in wireless connectivity the Exynos 9825 will support the next generation.
Samsung’s Exynos 9825 supports LPDDR4X memory and 22MP cameras on the front and back. It will also work with the dual-camera setup (16MP + 16MP). You can shot the video in 8k at 30fps and 4K UHD at 150fps. By using the Physically Unclonable Function (PUF) technology, the chip secures and isolates user’s personal data.
Historically, Samsung has generally been the latest Snapdragon Mobile Platform in the United States to run the latest Galaxy Note model with the Exynos chipset being used everywhere. However, a rumor was recently called for all the Galaxy Note 10 units in the states (as opposed to the Galaxy Note 10+), which feature the Exynos 9825 SoC except for the Verizon branded model.
This rumor did not come true, and in the United States, all the Galaxy Note 10 variants should be equipped with Snapdragon 855 (+) Mobile Platform. By using its 7nm process, the latter is manufactured by the TSMC.
The last time in the United States, the Samsung Galaxy Note phone was sold with an Exynos chip was back in the year of 2015 with the Galaxy Note 5. In this year the Snapdragon 810 had overheating problems and the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 both were powered with the Exynos 7420 SoC in the United States.
