Samsung's new chip, which will power the future Galaxy S9, draws good lessons from Apple's recent innovation catalog

THE Samsung posted today on his official blog an article detailing the news that will be introduced in his next and most powerful SoC (System-on-a-Chip), denominated Exynos 9810 that presumably equip the coming Galaxy S9 and S9 +, to be submitted in the coming months.

Surprising a total of zero people, South Korean innovations in the new processor involve a number of aspects that are becoming a trend in the world of technology and have already been or are being adopted by its main competitor, Apple and, you see, this one is not. It's one of those cases where we make fun of Samsung for copying Ma, which has been very common and, fortunately, is rarer these days. Following a trend, after all, is very different from copying in the hard face and competition just makes the race more interesting.

Samsung's new Exynos 9810 chip

Finally, what's new: starting with the usual, the chip will bring eight high-performance four cores, running at 2.9GHz, and four dedicated to energy efficiency and the usual (in the mobile world at least) 10-nanometer architecture; Compared to its predecessor, the new processor brings about doubled single core performance, while multi-core performance is about 40% higher. The new Exynos also features built-in ultra-fast LTE connectivity, supporting connections up to 1.2Gbps.

From then on, the new chip list starts to hit new ground and is quite similar to what Apple has been doing on its own processors. One of the big news about the Exynos 9810 has to do with its ability to handle artificial intelligence tasks, recognizing elements and even making 3D face detections. Sound familiar?

Samsung adds that in order to improve chip security, there is a separate processing unit inside it that stores the face, digital and iris information stored on the device – an approach similar to Apple's with its own. Secure Enclave.

These are very interesting news that will surely make the Galaxy S9 (plus) a formidable competitor for iPhones. It remains to be seen, of course, whether Samsung's promises about its new chip will be fulfilled, and for that we will have to wait a few more months and the first reviews of the future device. Does Apple have anything to worry about?
