Just a few hours earlier, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note 10 line in the US. The manufacturer officially introduced the chipset that will power phones outside the US. The Exynos 9825 SoC is manufactured in Samsung production facilities using the 7nm EUV process. Using this process, more transistors are inserted into the new chip than the number used in the Exynos 9820 820. This should lead to performance improvements from 20% to 30%, while Exynos 9825 consumes 30% to 50% less of energy. EUV means extreme ultraviolet lithography. This is a technology that uses ultraviolet rays to record silicon in the finest details, allowing more precise positioning of the circuits inside the chip.
Samsung claims that the Exynos 9825, similar to the Exynos 9820 it replaces, is equipped with two custom Samsung CPUs, two Cortex-A75 CPUs for complex tasks and four Cortex-A55 CPUs for less demanding needs. The graphics processing unit (GPU) on the chip is ARM Mali-G76 MP12 (also the same as Exynos 9820). The A-75 and GPU cores will run at higher clock speeds than the same components as Exynos 9820; higher clock speeds and the use of 7 nm EUV helped the new chip run faster in tests than its predecessor. The chip will have an integrated neural processing unit (NPU) to help perform artificial intelligence functions for a smartphone camera that allows object recognition to optimize photographs. It is also used to learn user models and help applications preload more quickly. The NPU can also support augmented reality features in a phone.

Exynos 9825 also includes Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 3.0, which has twice the bandwidth and consumes less energy than UFS 2.1. It can also work at higher temperatures, which is important considering all the demands placed on a smartphone today. UFS 3.0 has a sequential read speed of almost 2280 MB / sec compared to about 800 MB / sec with UFS 2.1. As for the Exynos 9825 modem, it is an integrated 4G LTE-Advanced Pro modem with 8x carrier aggregation. The latter combine operators to form larger data channels to increase capacity in a network. It is one of the tools used by wireless providers to increase data speed. And in combination with Samsung’s 5G Exynos 5100 modem (which supports 5G and 6GHz subW waves), Exynos 9825 will support next-generation wireless connectivity.
Exynos 9825 supports LPDDR4X memory and 22 MP cameras on the back and front. It will also work in a dual-camera setup (16MP + 16MP). Video can be recorded in 8k at 30 fps and in 4K UHD at 150 fps. Using a technology known as a physically non-clonable function (PUF), the chip isolates and protects users’ personal data.
Historically, Samsung generally uses the latest Snapdragon mobile platform to run the latest Galaxy Note model in the US. With the Exynos chipset used almost everywhere. However, a recent rumor demanded that all Galaxy Note 10 units (unlike the Galaxy Note 10+) in the United States also present the Exynos 9825 SoC, with the exception of Verizon branded models. That rumor turned out to be untrue and all variants of the Galaxy Note 10 in the US. They should be equipped with the Snapdragon 855 (+) mobile platform. The latter is produced by TSMC using its 7 nm process.
The last time a Samsung Galaxy Note phone was sold in the US. With an Exynos chip, it was in 2015 with the Galaxy Note 5. This was the year that the Snapdragon 810 had overheating problems and the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Note 5 both powered with the SoC Exynos 7420 in the States.
