The new chip, which is likely to power global variants of the Galaxy Note 10 (the us versions will probably be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip), is Samsung's first to be built in 7nm technology, which should provide for better power efficiency compared to its predecessor, the 8nm Exynos 9820.
It's also the company's first 7-nanometer processor built using a process it unveiled last October - a refresh of the 8-nm Exynos 9820 that powered the global versions of the Galaxy S10, Anandtech noted. It features the Mali-G76 MP12 GPU. "Equipped with an advanced neural processing unit, it's also delivering powerful AI experiences including personalized voice assistants and intelligent camera features, so you always get the ideal shot".
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. It follows on from the earlier 8nm Exynos 9820.
The Exynos 9825 is an octa-core processor with 2x 4th gen Custom CPUs paired with 2x Cortex-A75 cores and 4x Cortex-A55 cores.
The new Exynos 9825 is a fairly decent upgrade and seems flawless for a device like the Note 10.
For connectivity, the integrated 4G LTE-Advanced Pro model can support up to 2Gbps download speeds with 8x Carrier aggregation. The new SoC also supports LPDDR4x RAM as well as faster UFS 3.0 storage.
According to Samsung, the Exynos 9825's NPU was designed for the next generation of mobile experiences, from AI-powered photography to augmented reality. This could possibly mean that the upcoming flagship Note 10 series could also be supporting 8K UHD resolution i.e., 8K@30fps video recording. The company says the new system-on-chip (SoC) will bring enhanced gaming and graphics performance while increasing power efficiency and improving battery life.
