Samsung's Exynos 9810 chip hints at iPhone X Face ID-aping tech for the Galaxy S9

According to Samsung, the Exynos 9 Series 9810 SoC is now in mass production and we will see a bit more about it at the CES 2018 show since it has been selected as a CES 2018 Innovation Awards HONOREE in the Embedded Technologies product category.

The chip's architecture widens the pipeline and improves cache memory, offering a two-fold improvement in single-core performance, while multi-core performance is around 40% better than Samsung's previous Exynos chip.

It added: "By utilizing both hardware and software, hybrid face detection enables realistic face-tracking filters as well as stronger security when unlocking a device with one's face". "The Exynos 9810 will be a key catalyst for innovation in smart platforms such as smartphones and personal computing for the coming AI era", said Ben Hur, vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics. CPU will have four third-generation custom cores, which are relegated to power-intensive tasks and can operate at a maximum clock speed of 2.9 (GHz), with another cluster of four cores optimized for efficiency. According to the South Korean giant, the Exynos 9 Series 9810 is company's most innovative mobile processor so far, and it is meant for AI applications and richer multimedia content. Samsungs claims that the new technology will help the processor in recognising people more accurately and for fast image searching.

Moreover, a processing unit will always safeguard user's information like facial, iris and fingerprint data.
