Samsung announced that the company was just awarded no less than 36 CES 2018 Innovation Awards. These come for several products, most of them we already know, including the company’s 2017 flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, and the Galaxy Note 8.While there is no surprise that many of the company’s gadgets won awards, the press release also states that the brand new Exynos 9810 chipset also won an Innovation Award. In the press release, Samsung offers some information regarding the main features of its new flagship chipset. Unfortunately, the statement doesn’t reveal everything there is to know about the new chipset, but it reveals enough for us to find out that it is a powerful one. This is most likely the SoC that will power the global versions of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. The US version will reportedly come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 on board.
According to the press release issued on November 9, the Exynos 9810 is the company’s latest flagship, part of the Exynos 9 series. The chipset is built on the tech giant’s second-generation 10nm process technology and it features third-generation custom CPU cores and an upgraded GPU. Also, it brings along an upgraded gigabit LTE modem with industry-first 6CA support. We will probably see this chipset in the Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, as well as in the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 that will launch in 2018.
Besides the smartphones and the brand new Exynos 9810 chipset, Samsung’s Gear Fit 2 Pro fitness tracker, its latest Gear Sport smartwatch, and the upcoming Gear IconX 2018 headphones also won awards for innovation. The Samsung HMD Odyssey is also on the list of the award-winning products, which is not a surprise at all. On the same list, we can find the South Korean company’s 49” CHG90 Gaming Monitor, the Samsung Connect Home Pro smart Wi-Fi system, and the company’s Samsung Chef Collection. Even the Samsung 16Gb GDDR6 Memory got an award. Naturally, the company’s 8TB NGSFF NVMe SSD didn’t remain without one either.
Samsung seems to be doing quite well, not only in the smartphone market but in other sections too. Its new Exynos 9810 chipset will, without a doubt, turn the upcoming Samsung flagship smartphones into really powerful and efficient ones. We will most likely get to test in on board of the Galaxy S9 sometime in the first quarter of 2018, possibly in February. Until then, we will most likely find out even more about it.
