Samsung reveals details about its flagship processor that will power Galaxy S10

Samsung reveals details about its flagship processor that will power Galaxy S10

Samsung might use Qualcomm chips in most of its North American phones, but everyone else gets the company's custom Exynos chips.

Even though the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are a few months away from their first birthdays, Samsung quietly rolled out a new Ice Blue color option for both phones.

The next rumored feature is an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Some exciting stuff there, but I'm somewhat concerned about a display with a circle cutout off to the side.

One thing we can be fairly sure of about the Samsung Galaxy S10 is that in most regions outside the United States it will be powered by Samsung's latest high-end Exynos chipset, and it's just been announced. While other phone makers have opted for an iPhone X-style notch when approaching this issue, Samsung Galaxy phones have included ultraslim bezels instead.

While the Kirin 980 came with Mali-G76 MP10 GPU, Samsung is bundling Mali-G76 MP12 GPU with the Exynos 9820.

The Exynos 9 Series 9820 is expected to be mass produced by the end of this year.

The new chipset is capable of recording video at 8K at 30 frames per second.

According to the Twitter tipster, who has an nearly impeccable track record when it comes to forecasting the next-generation hardware from Samsung, the Galaxy S10 will have a three camera set-up on the back of the phone which will consist of a wide-angle, a telephoto lens and a primary shooter.

According to a report by South Korea-based Yonhap News Agency, the folding smartphone that Samsung teased at the Developer Conference last week won't be a secret much longer.

Evan Blass claims that the smartphone will have a "punch hole" near the top of its display which will house the front camera.
