Mobile Processor

Exynos 9820
The Next-level Processor for
the Mobile Future
The Exynos 9820 mobile processor is built to maximize intelligence on the go. From AI capabilities with NPU to powerful performance through tri-cluster CPU, the Exynos 9820 offers the blueprint and foundation for a smart, mobile future.


An Intelligent
The Exynos 9820 pushes the limit of mobile intelligence with an integrated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), a component that specializes in processing artificial intelligence tasks. It allows the processor to perform AI-related functions seven times faster than its predecessor.1 From enhancing photos to advanced AR features, the Exynos 9820 with NPU expands AI capabilities of mobile devices.

Superior Performance for
Seamless Multi-tasking
Featuring a 4th generation custom CPU, the Exynos 9820’s innovative tri-cluster architecture delivers premium processing power. The CPU consists of two custom cores for ultimate processing power, two Cortex-A75 cores for optimal performance, and four Cortex-A55 cores for greater efficiency, resulting in superior performance that lasts. Tri-cluster with intelligent task scheduler boosts multi-core performance by 15 percent when compared to the Exynos 9810, while the 4th generation custom CPU with enhanced memory access capability and cutting-edge architecture design improves single core performance by up to 20 percent or boosts power efficiency by up to 40 percent.1

Mobile Connectivity
Experience blazing download speed and smooth online gameplay with the Exynos 9820’s LTE-Advanced Pro modem. The integrated modem supports LTE Category 20 to offer
downlink speed of up to 2.0Gbps with 8x carrier aggregation (CA) and uplink speed of up to 316Mbps.2 Stability and speed of the modem is enhanced even further with the expansion of 4x4 Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MIMO), 256-QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation), and Enhanced Licensed-Assisted Access (eLAA) technology.


A Game Changer
Equipped with high performing Mali-G76 MP12 GPU, the Exynos 9820 delivers the ultimate gaming experience. The GPU features wider execution engines with double the number of lanes when compared to its predecessor, resulting in better performance and efficiency for complex graphics. Compared to the Exynos 9810, the Exynos 9820 offers up to 40 percent improvement in performance or 35 percent enhancement in power efficiency for more immersive, uninterrupted gameplay.1
