"The Exynos 9810 will be a key catalyst for innovation in smart platforms such as smartphones, personal computing and automotive for the coming AI era". This technology allows the processor to accurately recognize people or items in photos for fast image searching or categorization, or through depth sensing, scan a user's face in 3D for hybrid face detection. And based on some of the new features listed in the announcement, it seems Samsung has built its latest processor with a couple of the iPhone X's signature features in mind. It also comes with the hybrid face detection feature that provides realistic face-tracking filters and stronger security while unlocking the device with one's face.

The Exynos 9810 chip is expected to power features similar to Apple's Face ID and Animoji.

According to Samsung, the Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoC is now in mass production and we will see a bit more about it at the CES 2018 show since it has been selected as a CES 2018 Innovation Awards HONOREE in the Embedded Technologies product category.

The Exynos 9 Series 9810 Soc features an octa-core CPU, which is most likely based on four Cortex-A75 power cores paired with four Cortex-A55 cores for efficiency with a maximum clock speed of 2.9GHz. Samsung says it has made considerable improvements to the CPU architecture, improving cache memory as well.

According to Samsung, the Exynos 9810 chip will include functions dedicated to housing security details on a smartphone, including facial, iris and fingerprint information.

As for graphics, Samsung has opted for ARM's Mali G72 GPU, being the same hardware seen in Huawei's Kirin 970 chip. Another highlight of the processor is its camera handling capabilities. Numerous features it promises look suspiciously like features we've seen before - in the iPhone X. The imaging sub-system enables advanced stabilisation and real-time out-of-focus photography in high-resolution image and video. It's also the industry's first Cat.18 LTE modem to support up to 6x carrier aggregation (CA) for 1.2Gbps downlink and 200 megabits per second (Mbps) uplink. Additionally, the audio subsystem has also been upgraded for the audio quality of up to 32bit/384kHz. Qualcomm, on December 5, had already announced the Snapdragon 845 SoC as its next premium mobile processor at the Snapdragon Technology Summit.
