Silicon vendors are all launching new mobile processors with “advanced AI capabilities”, and Samsung has just announced another one of those processors with Exynos 9611 that upgrades on Exynos 9610 introduced last year.
The company claims “the Exynos 9611 mobile processor brings intelligent performance for the next-generation experiences from artificial intelligent applications to pro-grade camera”, but I’m actually unable to find any differences between the two processors, except the Cortex-A53 cluster’s maximum frequency has been boosted to 1.7 GHz instead of 1.6 GHz, and possibly support for 64MP single cameras.
Exynos 9611 key features and specifications:
- CPU – Up to 2.3GHz quad-core Cortex-A73 cluster and up to 1.7GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 cluster.
- GPU – Mali-G72 MP3
- Memory – LPDDR4x
- Storage – UFS 2.1, eMMC 5.1
- Display – Up to WQXGA (2560×1600)
- Camera – 24MP single camera (up to 64MP), 16+16MP dual camera
- Video – 4K UHD 120fps encoding and decoding with HEVC(H.265) and H.264, and decoding with VP9
- LTE Modem – LTE Cat.12 3CA 600Mbps (DL) / Cat.13 2CA 150Mbps (UL)
- Wireless Connectivity – Wi-Fi 5 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, FM Radio, GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo)
- Process – 10nm FinFET Process
The new processor is already available and found in Samsung Galaxy A50s launched a couple of weeks ago. For reference the mid-range Android 9.0 phone is equipped with 4 to 6 GB RAM, 128GB flash, a 6.4″ FHD+ (1080×2340) super AMOLED display, and a 48MP + 5MP + 8MP triple rear camera coupled with a 32MP front-facing camera. The phone is sold for INR 22,999 and up (~$323 US) in India.
