In a planned move, Samsung has unveiled its ultra-powered Octa-Core Exynos 9 Series 8895 chipset, which is the company’s first-ever to be drawn on the 10-nanometre FinFET process technology. The South Korean giant has confirmed that it is mass-producing the new chipset, but maintained its silence on whether it will be baked into its upcoming Galaxy flagships – Galaxy 8 and Galaxy S8+.
The Exynos 9 series 8895 is a high-end processor, capable of improving the performance up to 27% while saving almost 40% of the power. Plus, the chipset is made up of Samsung’s second-generation, custom-made CPU cores, along with four Cortex-A53 cores.
Samsung, in an official statement, described the arrangement as following:
“With Samsung Coherent Interconnect (SCI) technology, the latest processor integrates a heterogeneous system architecture that allows faster computing for a wide range of applications such as artificial intelligence, and deep learning.”
The high points of the Exynos 9 series 8895 include support for resolutions as higher as 28MP, for both rear and front cameras, audio resolution of 4K UHD at 120fps, and Vision Processing Unit (VPU) that works by providing a better view of things, and catching their movements through the visual information by the camera. Besides this, the chipset supports a dual camera arrangement of 28MP/16MP cameras.
