Intelligent Processor
Engineered for Millennials
For millennials who want to create and share fascinating contents using smartphone, the Exynos 9609 processor offers powerful camera features with intelligent processing. The advanced ISP and MFC with a vision image processing enables diverse intelligent photography features for great quality in both photo and video. The Exynos 9609 processor’s octa-core CPU and GPU provide powerful processing performance while the integrated modem with diverse connectivity enables faster and reliable mobile communication.

Artificial Intelligence

Mobile evolved with intelligence
For the advanced features driven by artificial intelligence, the Exynos 9609 processor utilizes a vision image processing unit that consists of a digital signal processor (DSP) and neural network engine. With a deep-learning technology, the DSP converts analog streams of images and video into a digital signal, and the neural-network engine analyzes the objects or environment within the image. Thus, the Exynos 9609’s vision image processing unit enables smartphones to offer intelligent photography experiences.
