Exynos delivers groundbreaking features on the Galaxy S10

June 5, 2019

The Galaxy S10 line is more than just smartphones. It represents a decade of innovation packed into Samsung’s most stunning design yet. Featuring innovative features like Infinity-O Display, pro-grade multi-camera with Super Steady video recording, artificial intelligence-powered performance, and 5G connectivity, Samsung has once again pushed the limit of smartphone capabilities, paving the way for a new era of communication.

Powering the latest innovations of the Galaxy line is the Exynos 9820 mobile processor, one of Samsung’s most impressive chips to date. As the heart of the Galaxy S10, the latest Exynos 9820 processor enables everything from groundbreaking processing power to energy efficiency and artificial intelligence. Here’s how Samsung’s latest chipset is powering the next generation mobile experience.

Driven by intelligence

From better battery life to faster app performance, the Galaxy S10 line not only helps you do more, it keeps up with you all day. Building on a legacy of AI performance technology, the Exynos 9820 features a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that enables a suite of performance enhancing intelligence features on the Galaxy S10. App pre-loading, for example, learns your app usage pattern to predict which app you will open next and loads the resources for it in advance.

The Exynos 9820’s NPU also brings improvements to Bixby. Bixby Vision leverages the improved AI processing to recognize objects even faster and power all new AR features, such as virtually showing you how a new furniture will look in your living room.1 For an even more personalized experience, Bixby leverages improved intelligence features to analyze your daily routine.2 Bixby Routines uses context cues, such as the time of day and your location, to provide you with useful information or automate simple tasks. Getting ready for the commute to work? Bixby will load up your favorite playlist and have music ready to go.

Next generation performance

Featuring an octa-core CPU including two 4th generation custom CPUs for ultimate processing power, the Exynos 9820 enables the Galaxy S10 line to handle even the heaviest tasks on the go. Furthermore, tri-cluster architecture with intelligent task scheduler boosts multi-core performance for seamless multitasking. With up to 12GB of RAM3, you can run two apps in multi-window with power to spare, or take advantage of the Galaxy S10’s gorgeous display with an intense gaming session.

Streaming your favorite TV series on the Galaxy S10 is a breeze with the Exynos 9820’s LTE-Advanced Pro modem. The integrated modem supports LTE Category 20 offering download speeds up to 2.0Gbps.4 Furthermore, stability and speed is enhanced even further with the 4x4 multiple-Input and multiple-output (MIMO) that uses multiple antennas to transfer more data at the same time. The integrated modem also supports dual SIM so that users can use two numbers and data plans on the smartphone.5

Built for gamers

Whether you’re into casual puzzles or intense shooter-survival games, the Galaxy S10 line is truly built for gamers. As the first mobile device optimized for the Unity game engine, you’ll get all the performance, with none of the lag, stuttering, or overheating issues.

Powered by Arm® Mali™-G76 MP12 graphics processing unit (GPU), the Exynos 9820 delivers the kind of gaming experience you’d expect on a premium device. The GPU’s wider execution engines double the number of lanes compared to its predecessor, resulting in better performance and efficiency for graphic intense games. Compared to the Galaxy S9 with the Exynos 9810, the Galaxy S10 offers up to 37% improvement in graphics performance.6

Gamers will also benefit from the Galaxy S10’s Intelligent Performance Enhancer, allowing the smartphone to optimize your experience to ensure you get smooth gameplay. Combined with premium hardware like the vapor chamber cooling, long-lasting battery, you’ll be able to game on long commutes without ever worrying about overheating or running out of juice.7 The HDR10+ certified Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display and the world’s first Dolby Atmos® for gaming mode are the cherries on top, delivering realistic picture and premium sound to take full advantage of the Unity engine optimization.

Capture every angle

Channeling your inner photographer is easier than ever with the Galaxy S10. The Exynos 9820’s advanced image signal processor (ISP) supports multi-camera set up, enabling the one-handed lens switching between the Telephoto, Wide-angle, and Ultra Wide Cameras on the rear of the Galaxy S10 and S10+.

The Exynos 9820’s intelligent photography technologies also improve photo quality, enabling the Galaxy S10 to get clear photos in both bright daylight and the dark of night. The dual aperture camera automatically adjusts to the light conditions before you tap the shutter, so you get the best exposure every time. For landscape lovers, the Ultra Wide camera’s 123° angle of view combined with an intelligent distortion correction makes taking stunning panoramic shots a breeze. But no matter the shot you’re going for, the improved Scene Optimizer, thanks to the Exynos 9820’s NPU, ensures your shots come out looking their best with Local Tone Mapping and Flaw Detection. For professional composition, the Galaxy S10’s Shot Suggestion guides you to an ideal photo composition based on the NPU’s machine learning that leverages analyses of over 100 million high-quality photos.

Even selfies get a boost with the dual front camera of the Galaxy S10+ that can shoot UHD videos and Live Focus images that allow you to soften the background and adjust depth of field for more artistic portraits.8

Professional video

Never fret that your precious moments will be ruined by shaky hands again. Using the Ultra Wide camera, the Galaxy S10 shoots pro-level action camera footage with true-to-life detail. The Super Steady on the Galaxy S10 ensures you get buttery smooth videos whether you’re chasing around a beloved kid or pet in a backyard.9 The upgraded Super Slow-mo means you can capture twice the amount of footage at 960 frames per second turning your videos into cinematic masterpieces.10

With the Exynos 9820’s multi-format codec (MFC), which supports UHD video and 10-bit HEVC (H.265) for HDR10+ content, you’ll capture every incredible detail. Rich color and contrast are preserved with HDR10+ and Dynamic Tone Mapping ensures the colors stay accurate in every scene.11

Cinematic experience

Streaming has never felt so good as on the Galaxy S10’s stunning Infinity-O Display. The Exynos 9820’s display subsystem supports HDR10+ display with Quad HD+ resolution. It enables users to take full advantage of the cutting-edge Infinity-O Display by rendering colors in 10-bit and displaying a wide range of tones and hues that bring your content to life.

As the first HDR10+ certified smartphone, the Galaxy S10’s display delivers amazingly real color and contrast with dynamic tone mapping, which optimizes colors from scene to scene, so you get the most color-accurate experience through every scene.

Keep it in the Vault

Worried about your data? The Galaxy S10 gives you peace of mind with a suite of powerful new security features. The new Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor is the star of the show, built right into the Infinity-O Display to deliver seamless, convenient authentication when unlocking your device.12 Using ultrasonic pulses, it detects the 3D ridges and valleys of your fingerprint and can distinguish between real and fake fingerprints so only you can access your phone.

Rest assured your data is safe with the Exynos 9820’s physically unclonable function (PUF) that serves a unique identity from physical variation of semiconductor. It helps the smartphone to store and manage your personal data in perfect isolation.
