Samsung is about to unveil today its Galaxy Note 10, brand new standard meter for the second half of 2019. A few hours before the start of the conference, Samsung unveils the Exynos 9825. The chip that will equip this highly anticipated smartphone.
Exynos 9825: 7nm transition
Samsung has a habit of using the same SoC ( System on a Chip ) on its Galaxy S at the beginning of the year and on its Galaxy Note at the end of the year. 2019 is an exception to the rule since we note here an evolution between the two ranges of devices.
Earlier this year, Samsung shipped the Exynos 9820 in its Galaxy S10 and the Exynos 9825 is the logical evolution. The main difference is in the fineness of engraving. Goodbye the 8 nm LPP, we go here to a process in 7 nm EUV which should, therefore, make the smartphone more efficient than its predecessor.

We find otherwise the same architecture made up of four economical cores (Cortex-A55), two customizable high- performance cores and two “ optimized ” cores (Cortex-A75), but also a twelve-core Mali-G76 GPU and an NPU for calculations dedicated to artificial intelligence.
The rest of the datasheet of this chip remains similar to that seen at the beginning of the year, even in its 4G modem category 20 capable of aggregating up to 8 bands for speeds up to 2 Gbps. Samsung also states that the Exynos 9825 is “ ready for the 5G era ” when paired with the Exynos Modem 5100 modem, compatible with the 5G NR (non-stand-alone).
As is already the case for the Galaxy S10. We imagine that the Galaxy Note 10 should not be 5G in its main version. And it will, therefore, turn to a dedicated variant to take advantage of the future mobile network.
To learn more about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, see you tonight when the Samsung Unpack event will begin.
