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

Highlights of the new chip, which is likely to be built into Samsung's next flagship phone, include a new Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which will power the phone's AI tasks, as well as video recording in 8K resolution.

"In an alternative move to these two options", the report continues, "if users are looking for a smartphone-sized package in any given moment, the right side of the display (which also contains the rear camera) can be folded over".

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.

Such technology meant the Galaxy S9 was able to take clearer photos with more detail than its predecessor. Now, rumor has it that the alleged Galaxy S10 Lite could sport one of the display designs showcased at the event. That should allow future Samsung devices to run AI processes locally rather than offloading to a server. That particular device is rumored to support 5G New Radio connectivity but may only end up being sold in the company's home country.

Samsung unveiled its newest flagship mobile chip, the Exynos 9820, today.

Say hello to the W2019, a foldable phone from Samsung but it's not the foldable phone from Samsung. It's possible the company will want to wait and see what the market reaction to its coming foldable phone looks like before rolling out a tablet that folds.

"As AI-related services expand and their utilization diversify in mobile devices, their processors require higher computational capabilities and efficiency", said Ben Hur, vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics.
