Samsung just unveiled its new chip the Exynos 9610. This new chip is from the Exynos 7 series and comes in line with its mid-range chipset offering based on AI assisted photography. That promises to deliver an exceptional image quality.
According to Samsung “The Exynos 7 Series 9610 is our latest mobile processor that delivers on added power and speed. But more importantly, it sets a new performance standard for high-end devices with its deep learning vision-image processing solution and slow motion video capabilities that change the way we engage with our mobile devices.”
Coupled with a neural image processor the Exynos 9610 comes with a lot of new features. One of which is advanced face detection, allowing the camera to recognize a face in any position, even behind an object. There is also depth sensing and some software controlled features that would allow even a single camera to take breath taking pictures. Which is similar to what Google is doing on its new Pixel devices.
The Exynos 9610 chip can also take better low light pictures. This would be done by tweaking brightness and merging multiple snaps into a single picture in order to reduce noise. Aside from that the chip also has support for a dual camera setup as well. So manufacturers can either go with a single 24MP camera or a dual 16MP+16MP sensors.
The new mid ranged chip from Samsung also support slow motion video capture. Where it can record slow motion videos at 480FPS on 1080p resolution. Aside from that the chip can also record videos in 4K but then the frame rate would be limited to 120FPS. For processing the Exynos 9610 comes with four Cortex A73 cores and Cortex A53 cores, clocked in at 2.3GHz and 1.6GHz respectively. Aside from that the chip also supports download speeds of 600MBPS with an upload speed of 150MBPS.
