Samsung brings AI and 480fps video recording to mid-range Exynos 9610 chipset

Samsung brings AI and 480fps video recording to mid-range Exynos 9610 chipset

"The Exynos 7 Series 9610 is our latest mobile processor that delivers on added power and speed".

Samsung states that the Exynos 9610 has deep learning-based image processing for better photo-taking experiences. Photography and slow-motion video capture will be the largest noticeable changes.

The second major feature of the Exynos 9810 is 480FPS slow-motion video recording in Full HD resolution.

Based on deep-learning technology, cameras will also be able to quickly identify faces of people even when their faces are obscured by hair or hats, Samsung said.

The SoC is also capable of support single camera out-focusing and augmented low-light images.

In terms of what you can expect on a raw performance basis, Samsung's latest is an octa-core offering made up of four fast Cortex A73 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four Cortex A53 cores running at 1.6GHz.

For always connected and seamless mobile broadband connection, the embedded all-network LTE modem supports Cat.12 3CA at 600Mbps for downlink and Cat.13 2CA at 150Mbps for uplink. According to the company, the new Exynos 9610 is going to be mass produced in the second half of this year, so new devices sporting this hardware are probably going to be unveiled next year. Through cleverly merging multiple frames, vision and image processing enhances the signal to noise ratio (SNR) and brightness that can improve pictures taken in low-light environments.

With Super-slow motion being the new marketing element for Samsung's Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, this feature is also supported by the Exynos 9610. To allow features such as gesture recognition and context awareness, the SoC has an in-built Cortex M4F-based low-power sensor hub. It also has 802.11ac 2.2 MIMO Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and FM 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. While it has been created to deliver slow-motion video recording it also packs in some deep learning magic that should improve the quality of photos drastically, just like on the Google Pixel 2.

Samsung is not preparing a Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8 Plus successor anytime soon.
