Samsung decided not to wait until MWC 2017 and unveiled their new flagship processor Exynos 9 Series 8895. Just like Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, this processor is based on a 10nm process technology. As a result, Exynos 9 Series 8895 is 27% more productive than previous versions and consumes 40% less energy than 14-nm chipsets, like Snapdragon 821.
Exynos 9 Series 8895 has 4 Samsung-made cores and 4 more powerful Cortex-A53 cores. The graphics is controlled by the Mali-G71 processor. It supports higher image resolutions, up to 3840х2400 and 4096×2160, just like recording and playing video in 4K. Besides, the processor supports cameras up to 28MP which includes not only regular sensors but dual cameras.
According to Samsung representatives, Exynos 9 Series 8895 is the first one to be fitted with LTE-modem with 5CA support. This allows the processor to download data at 1Gbps speed. What’s more, Exynos 9 Series 8895 has something else onboard – a separated co-processor responsible for safety. It will store all data from fingerprint and retina sensors.
Exynos 9 Series 8895 has already been put into mass production. And it looks like we will see it in the international versions of the new Samsung smartphones: Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
