October 8, 2018 - Written By Kristijan Lucic In Short: AllAboutSamsung claims to know all the color variants that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be available in. According to the most recent Twitter post, the Galaxy S10 will ship in Black, White, Green, Silver / Gray, and Pink color options. This more or less confirms a post that Ice Universe shared back in August, guessing those very same colors. That is more or less all the info that the source released thus far, though it is worth noting that the availability of these color variants will be market-dependent, as always, so not all colors will be available in all markets.Background: The Galaxy S10 is still far away from being released, the phone is expected to arrive in the first quarter of next year, quite probably during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, at the end of February, a year after the arrival of the Galaxy S9 series. We still did not see any Galaxy S10 leaks that would reveal a realistic design of the phone, but … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S10 Color Variants Revealed Via New Report
Way back in August, one tipster revealed that Samsung had a variety of colors under consideration for the Galaxy S10, although it was pointed out that these could easily change. Today, however, one reliable source has come forward to confirm that Samsung’s next flagship will launch in five colors.Following in the footsteps of previous releases, the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10 Lite (or however Samsung chooses to brand them) will unsurprisingly be made available to purchase in both black and white. Alongside these options, Samsung is reportedly preparing an updated silver variant too. However, in the hope of attracting customers that are looking for something slightly different, a new pink offering will be sold alongside an Emerald Green-colored Galaxy S10.Considering the popularity of both the black and white color options, these will presumably be made available to purchase upon launch. Similarly, the positive press that an Emerald Green option will garner means consumers should … [Read more...] about The Samsung Galaxy S10 color options have reportedly been finalized
Samsung is reportedly working on AI silicon for an upcoming processor. It’s believed the NPU could make its way to the next-generation Samsung mobile chip. If confirmed, Samsung would follow Huawei, Apple, and MediaTek in adding AI hardware to its mobile chipset. Apple and Huawei both made an impact in 2017 thanks to their inclusion of AI silicon in their mobile chipsets. Now, it seems like Samsung may be preparing to bring AI hardware to its next-generation Exynos chipset.The Korean company has been working on “second-generation NPU [neural processing unit – ed] architecture,” according to Samsung tipster Ice Universe. The leaker cites a former Samsung employee’s LinkedIn profile in order to make the claim. For what it’s worth, the employee now works at Qualcomm, according to his profile. Ice Universe suggests the AI chip is intended for the Exynos 9820 chipset, or whatever Samsung’s next flagship silicon will be called. Samsung may have … [Read more...] about Samsung tipped to be working on NPU: Could Galaxy S10, Note 10 offer AI silicon?
Over the past twelve months, both chip makers and smartphone brands have focused heavily on new artificial intelligence implementations – Huawei’s Kirin 980 actually boasts two dedicated NPUs in the hope of improving AI performance. Samsung , on the other hand, has largely avoided any implementations of this kind. But with the arrival of the Galaxy S10, this could change. According to the LinkedIn profile of a former Samsung employee, the company began developing its second-generation NPU design in December of 2017. From the looks of things, the employee in question left the project halfway through, so very little information about the solution is provided. However, considering work begun almost a year ago, the new design will presumably be ready in time for the arrival of the Galaxy S10. Unsurprisingly, it seems Samsung already developed its own NPU prior to beginning work on the second-generation version. However, this never made an appearance inside the … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S10 processor to arrive with dedicated NPU
October 6, 2018 - Written By Dominik Bosnjak In short: Samsung’s next flagship system-on-chip expected to be integrated into select Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 models is likely to feature a dedicated neural processing unit (NPU) designed for on-device artificial-intelligence computing. The company already completed the development of its second-generation NPU solution, as suggested by a LinkedIn profile of one of its former employees spotted on Saturday. The specifics of the chip remain unclear, though the platform is now expected to be found inside the Exynos 9820, which is how Samsung’s next premium SoC for smartphones and tablets is believed to be called.Background: While Samsung already designed an NPU, no such chip was present inside the Exynos 9810, its last commercial flagship chip which is powering the international variants of the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 Plus, and the Galaxy Note 9. On the other hand, both Qualcomm and Huawei have been making major inroads in the … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S10 Chip To Have Dedicated AI Unit À La Kirin 980
