New Samsung Exynos 7 Can Handle 480 fps Slo-Mo’s

The next flagship smartphone from Samsung will have camera and video features that will make the iPhone X look like an amateur device. Samsung Electronics new processor, the Exynos 7 Series 9610 is capable of slow motion video recording at a stunning 480 frames per second and that’s just the start.

Built on its well established 10-nanometer FinFET process, the Exynos 7 brings elevated multimedia experience to high-end smartphones coupled with premium features like deep learning-based image processing and slow motion video recording at 480 frames per second giving excellent clarity to a HD video.

“The Exynos 7 Series 9610 is our latest mobile processor that delivers on added power and speed,” said Ben Hur, vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics. “But more importantly, it sets a new performance standard for high-end devices with its deep learning vision-image processing solution and slow motion video capabilities that change the way we engage with our mobile devices.”

Samsung has focused on imaging for the new processors by coupling it with a neural network engine for intelligent enhanced face detection features, as well as single camera out-focusing and augmented low-light image taking. The advanced face detection feature enables the camera to recognise faces that are either not facing forward or partially covered with objects like hair or a hat. With smart depth sensing, bokeh or out-focused portraits can be taken with a single camera instead of dual camera’s.

As for slo-mo videos, the Exynos 9610 can handle 480fps slow-motion in full HD, even while using a conventional two-stack image sensor, the processor is able to encode slow-motion video, thanks to its image signal processor. In addition, the processor uses a premium multi-format codec that allows encoding and decoding up to 4K 120fps.

Engineers have also considered modern day devices that require more CPU and GPU especially when it comes to gaming, the CPU is comprised of four Cortex-A73 cores running at 2.3 gigahertz, and four 1.6GHz Cortex-A53 cores to load apps quickly and run multiple tasks simultaneously. While the GPU is a second-generation Bifrost-based ARM Mali-G72.

Always-on sensing applications that require instant feedback, such as gesture recognition or context awareness, are enabled by an embedded Cortex-M4F-based low-power sensor hub, which efficiently manages the sensors in real-time without waking the main processor.

Made to handle high speeds of up to 600 megabits per second, the processors are built with the near future in mind. Packed with wireless communication technologies such as high-throughput 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi and long range Bluetooth 5.0.
