Samsung announces next generation Exynos 9810 SoC


New rumors about the Galaxy S9 from Samsung suggest that the launch of the phone will come sooner than this technology.

A new support page on Samsung's official S. Korea website popped up yesterday. The details are anything but conclusive but it narrows options down to the, admittedly unrealistic, Galaxy S9 Mini, or the A3 (2018). The Galaxy A5 (2016) that arrived in December 2015 had a model number of SM-A510. It is also said that the next-gen A series Samsung smartphone may come with improved camera department compared to its predecessors. The phone could also have a rear fingerprint scanner, though the dual-rear camera might not make an appearance on the A5 smartphone.

From the leaked GFXBench listing, it is believed that the Galaxy J3 (2018) will feature entry-level specifications such as the previous Galaxy J3 smartphones. Continuing with its legacy in this area, it has recently come up with Exynos 9810 SoC, which is anticipated to be the chipset for Galaxy S9 and S9 plus, whose predecessors S8 and S8 plus were based on the Exynos 8895 processor, on which E 9810 appears to be an absolute victor.

The Galaxy A5 (2018) will sport a 5.5-inch Full HD+ Infinity display with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, while the Galaxy A7 (2018) will feature a 6-inch Full HD+ display with a similar screen resolution.

The report adds the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 got FCC approval on November 9. Going by the rumours, the S9 series of phones are expected to come with S8-like infinity display.

Alongside the A5 (2018), the South Korean smartphone manufacturer is also working on the successor of this year's flagship phones - Galaxy S8 and S8+. The screen size is expected to be just under 5-inches. Will it launch alongside 2018 version of Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A8?
