In a recent announcement, Samsung announced their latest 10nm based Exynos 9 8895 SoC. Manufactured on Samsung’s latest 10nm FinFET with an improved 3D structure, the Samsung Exynos 9 8895 features 27% higher performance at a 40% decreased power consumption compared to previous generation 14nm SoCs.
Compute in the Samsung Exynos 9 8895 is powered by eight cores with four 2nd Generation custom Samsung designed cores paired along with four Cortex-A53 high performance cores. Graphics is powered by ARM’s latest Mali G71 GPU. This allows the Exynos 9 8895 to drive resolutions up to WQUXGA (3840×2400), play 4K UHD content at 120fps, and deliver quality VR experiences.
In addition to powerful compute and graphics capability, the Exynos 9 8895 is also the first of its kind to feature a modem supporting 5CA (Five Carrier Aggregation). This allows performance up to a 1Gbps downlink using 5CA and performance up to 150Mbps uplink using 2CA.
Additional features on the Exynos 9 8895 include a separate security processing unit which includes iris/fingerprint recognition as well as a Vision Processing Unit (VPU) that will enable next generation machine vision powered technologies. The Samsung Exynos 9 8895 also supports up to 28MP cameras as well as dual camera solutions.
The Samsung Exynos 8895 is currently in mass production. Although Samsung hasn’t disclosed which devices will utilize the new SoC, Samsung’s Galaxy S series smartphones as well as their Galaxy Tab S series have traditionally utilized Samsung’s in-house Exynos SoCs.
