New Delhi: Even as the gadget market was abuzz with rumours that Samsung will launch its processor before the launch of its Galaxy S9 next year, the South Korean company has quietly done it.
Samsung has introduced its latest 'Exynos 9810' chipset.
The company, however, revealed its new chip through acknowledging one of the 36 CES 2018 Innovation Awards the company recently won.
The Exynos 9 Series 9810 is Samsung’s latest flagship processor, with 3rd-generation custom CPU cores, upgraded GPU, and gigabit LTE modem with industry-first 6CA support. It is built on 2nd generation 10nm process technology,” Samsung wrote in a blog post.
Samsung's 'Exynos 9810' chip is the successor to its first Exynos 9 series chip -- the 8895 which powers flagsip devices like Galaxy S8 and Note 8.
The new processor also promises peak download speeds up to 1.2 Gbps thanks to its use of 6 band LTE carrier aggregation technology, 4×4 MIMO, and 256 QAM.
Samsung has announced that 36 of its latest products have been recognized as CES 2018 Innovation Awards winners. Products awarded in this program are honored for outstanding design and engineering in cutting-edge consumer electronics technology across 28 product categories.
Samsung’s award-winning products include two Best of Innovation and span categories across Virtual and Augmented Reality, Wearable Technologies, Video Displays, Home Appliances, and Smart Home.
This marks the first year where Samsung has won in the CES Innovation Award category of Fitness, Sports and Biotech for the Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, and Gear IconX (2018).
