Galaxy Note 10 Snapdragon 855+ might not be happening

Galaxy Note 10 Snapdragon 855+ might not be happening

Galaxy Note fans might be in for yet another disappointment with this year's models. Yes, plural as it might affect both the normal model and the Plus model. Emotions ran high when Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 855+, which seems to be perfect timing for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+. Unfortunately, a new leak claims that that will not be the case and that some models will be left with an older Snapdragon while others will use a fresh new Exynos chip.

Samsung phones could soon boast AMD Radeon graphics tech inside

Samsung phones could soon boast AMD Radeon graphics tech inside

Smartphones today have gotten so powerful that they're theoretically capable of running desktop-grade software. For years, however, phone makers and developers have been boasting about "console-level graphics", particularly in games but, truth be told, they are nowhere near that level at all. We might still be decades from phones reaching that status but Samsung may have just taken one small step forward by partnering with AMD to imbue its Exynos chips with some Radeon graphics powers.

Galaxy S10 renders, photos show details ‘Beyond X’

Galaxy S10 renders, photos show details ‘Beyond X’

The newest photos of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus suggest to us that we might want to wait for the Galaxy Note 10. The front, back, and sides of these devices look a whole lot like their predecessors, and the technology under the hood - what we know so far - isn't particularly game-changing. That is to say UNLESS these minor details give us clues as to the true nature of what's still hidden.

Galaxy S10 benchmarks lower than iPhone XS: why it doesn’t matter

Galaxy S10 benchmarks lower than iPhone XS: why it doesn’t matter

Even before it's officially launched, the Galaxy S10 is already earning mixed "reviews". And we're not just talking about controversial punch holes and in-screen fingerprint scanners here. The past few days have witnessed the appearance of benchmarks for both the Galaxy S10 as well as its processors, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Samsung Exynos 9820. The numbers vary depending on the source but one thing they all seem to have in common is that they fall below the iPhone XS and Apple's A12 processor. As disappointing as that may sound for Android and Samsung fans, in the end, those benchmark scores really don't matter.

Galaxy S10 with Snapdragon 855 faster than Exynos on AnTuTu

Galaxy S10 with Snapdragon 855 faster than Exynos on AnTuTu

Qualcomm has just announced its horse for the 2019 mobile platform race and much of its rhetoric revolved around technologies like 5G, AI, CV-ISP, XR, and the like. Of course, the Snapdragon 855 is expected to be faster, especially with its new three-tier octa-core layout, multi-core Neural Processing Units, and Adreno 640 GPU. But just how fast is it on a presumed upcoming device? Based on AnTuTu’s preliminary benchmarks, faster than almost everyone except Apple.

Samsung Exynos 9820: Five reasons Galaxy S10 just won

The next Samsung Exynos processor is almost certainly headed for the Galaxy S10 in early 2019. Today we got our first look at what this processor is capable of, courtesy of Samsung's own official information release.

Samsung Exynos 9820 finally gets its own NPU for AI

Samsung Exynos 9820 finally gets its own NPU for AI

Although Samsung has long been talking about its Exynos mobile application processor (AP), a.k.a. mobile processor, even before Huawei started singing praises of its own Kirin chip, the Korean manufacturer has somewhat been silent on at least one new trend in that market. While the Exynos hasn’t exactly been lagging behind in overall performance, it has yet to jump on the not so new AI trend that taking the mobile market by storm. That time has finally come and next year’s Samsung phones powered by the new Exynos 9 Series 9820 will finally bring a dedicated NPU to the table.

Galaxy S10 Exynos, Snapdragon variants won’t be created equal

Galaxy S10 Exynos, Snapdragon variants won’t be created equal

For whatever business and legal reasons, Samsung has long made two variants of its flagship devices. One was powered by its own Exynos processor while other markets got Qualcomm’s equivalent Snapdragon chip. Other than that, those two variants are functionally equal, with Samsung sometimes even disabling features for the two versions to be on equal footing. Next year’s Galaxy S10, however, might be a bit different because the difference between the two variants could go beyond just the processor and include even the logic board could be substantially different.

Samsung Exynos, ISOCELL tech expands to smart cars

Samsung Exynos, ISOCELL tech expands to smart cars

Cars are becoming more and more like smartphones these days. Not just "connected to smartphones" but also using pretty much the same technologies are the computers in our pockets. That's especially true for the silicon that allows for these vehicles to become partially or even fully autonomous. So it's not a big surprise that Samsung is announcing that two of its now popular chips are coming to the automotive industry, bringing its Exynos processors and ISOCELL sensors to the smart vehicles of the future.

Exynos Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8 can do 4K 60fps recording

Just because you have a fancy, advanced image sensor capable of 4K 60 fps video recording doesn't mean you'll be able to do that on your smartphone. Your phone's processor needs to be able support that rather heavy load and, even if it could, your OEM has to allow that feature to be made available to users. When one of those requirements aren't met, users are sadly deprived of what they should have. Fortunately for owners of the Galaxy S8/S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 using Samsung's Exynos processors, that's possible now.

Samsung Exynos i S111 takes the IoT battle outside the home

Samsung Exynos i S111 takes the IoT battle outside the home

The Internet of Things or IoT is one of the fastest growing segments in the tech market today. For the most part, this market is made up of stationary devices that communicate with each other over short distances. This has practically limited IoT products to houses or rooms within a building. Samsung, however, proposes a future where IoT devices can cover distances as far as 10 km without using much power. Naturally, it’s proposing its shiny new Exynos i S111 system-on-chip to power that future.
