Samsung tries to re-define mobile computing with Galaxy Note9

With this baby, Samsung is going for broke. Since it’s the most powerful one, we will limit ourselves to talking of its innards.

This 1 is powered by either Samsung’s Exynos 9810 or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 (depending on region). Guess, what. It will be cooled by a custom-designed water cooling system, a 1st.

The Exynos 9810, the 2nd in Samsung’s Exynos 9 series, is an 8-core chip consisting of 4 2.7GHz high-performance cores & 4 slightly slower, power-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.7GHz. It packs quite a performance punch, delivering up to 2 times the raw processing power of the Note8’s Exynos 8895 in terms of single-core performance.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 similarly sports 8 cores — 4 Cortex-A75 performance cores & 4 efficiency cores. It’s 30% faster than the Note8’s Snapdragon 835, overall.

Both the Exynos 9810 & Snapdragon 845 boast modems that deliver download speeds over LTE up to 1.2Gbps (Cat. 18).
