Samsung's new Note takes on Huawei in selfie beauty pageant

Posted August 08, 2019

After just half a year since the launch of the Exynos 9820, Samsung is now finally making the jump to 7 nm with the new Exynos 9825.

Samsung on Wednesday unveiled a quick scanning feature to its new Galaxy Note 10 phone that lets you walk around an object and quickly get a seemingly photo-realistic 3D scan of it in seconds. That honor belongs to the up-clocked Snapdragon 855 Plus, which recently launched with the Asus ROG Phone 2.

While the Exynos 9825 is far from being the first 7nm processor, it is actually the industry's first to use EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) processing.

The Exynos 9825 processor comes with an integrated NPU (Neural Processing Unit), just like the Exynos 9820, which can be used for improving AI-powered photography as well as benefit applications that take advantage of augmented reality. The Note 10 Plus will also have the "super fast charging feature, which will allow the device to "last through the day" with just a just 30 minutes of charge". The new flagship SoC with this new process is claimed to be more faster and power-efficient processor. 20 LTE download speeds, (up to 2Gbps, and up to 316Mbps upload speeds.) It can integrate with Samsung's Exynos Modem 5100 modem for 5G connectivity. The chipset is said to be supporting download speeds of up to 2Gbps as well.

And, night mode is now available for the front-facing selfie camera, too, for better snaps in low-light settings. On the Galaxy Note 10, even on the bigger versions, there is only a single front camera.

It can also drive 4K UHD resolutions displays measuring 4096 x 2160 pixels, along with WQUXGA resolutions, which measure 3840 x 2400 pixels.

As for storage options, the Exynos 9825 SoC can support UFS 3.0 & 2.1 storages alongside the LPDDR4x RAM. The rumor is that Samsung will announce a 6.3-inch Galaxy Note 10 and a ginormous 6.8-inch Galaxy Note 10 Plus. Both Note models have a 64-bit Octa-core processor under the hood, but the Note 10 Plus has 12GB RAM with 256GB or 512GB internal storage, while its little brother has 8GB RAM with 256GB internal storage.
