The processor includes support for deep learning image processing and video recording at up to 480 frames per second. It uses a multi-format codec (MFC) that allows encoding and decoding of 4K resolution images up to 120fps.
Samsung did not indicate whether the processor includes neural processing hardware from DeePhi Technologies Ltd. (Beijing, China), a startup it made an investment in last year (see Report: Samsung invests in Chinese NN startup).
The Exynos 9610 CPU is four Cortex-A73 cores running at up to 2.3GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores running at up to 1.6GHz. The GPU is a second-generation Bifrost-based ARM Mali-G72. Always-on sensing applications that require instant feedback, such as gesture recognition or context awareness, are enabled by a Cortex-M4F-based sensor hub IC.
For always connected and seamless mobile broadband connection, the embedded all-network LTE modem supports Cat.12 3CA (carrier aggregation) at 600 megabits per second (Mbps) for downlink and Cat.13 2CA at 150Mbps for uplink. The processor is also packed with wireless communication technologies such as high-throughput 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi, faster and longer range Bluetooth 5.0, and FM for radio. In addition, for global location positioning coverage, it embeds a 4-mode Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver that includes GPS (Global Positioning System), GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo.
The Exynos 7 Series 9610 is expected to be mass produced in the second half of this year.
