If you buy a smartphone Samsung in the coming months, maybe you will come across octa-core Exynos 9611. This is the name of the newest processor for intermediate phones from the Korean company. It already equips the newly announced Galaxy M30s and Galaxy A50s, for you to have an idea.
Judging by the technical specifications, the Exynos 9611 appears as a slightly improved version of the Exynos 9610, a chip unveiled earlier this year by Samsung.
Both have a 10 nanometer FinFet manufacturing process and bring eight cores: four 2.3 GHz Cortex-A73 and, for less demanding tasks, four Cortex-A53 cores. The only difference here is the Cortex-A53 cores on the Exynos 9611 have a frequency of 1.7 GHz versus 1.6 GHz on the Exynos 9610.
In terms of graphics, the changes were even more discreet. Like the Exynos 9610, the Exynos 9611 has a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. Samsung implies that, in the new chip, the frequency of the GPU is higher, but has not yet revealed how much that rate was.
In terms of connectivity, the new processor repeats its predecessor by supporting Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, Glonass, BeiDou, Galileo and FM radio, in addition to bringing a category 12 LTE modem, which allows speeds of up to 600 Mb / s (megabits per second) in the download and 150 Mb / s in the upload.
Samsung points out that the Exynos 9611 has a vision processing unit based on a neural network mechanism that helps, for example, in the detection of objects in photos and in the most appropriate automatic adjustments for each type of scene.
Still according to Samsung, the feature allows the phone to generate selfies with very satisfactory results in the blurred background mode, even if the registration is done with only one camera.
As pointed out at the beginning of the post, one of the first smartphones based on the Exynos 9611 was announced recently: this is the Samsung Galaxy M30s, which features a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen, 6,000 mAh battery and a triple camera at the rear (48 + 8 + 5 megapixels).
