Yesterday, South Korean tech giant Samsung has issued a notice on Twitter that conveys that the company is going to release a new Exynos processor, Exynos 9630. Today, Samsung has an event, 2019 Samsung Technology Day event so experts are considering that the company might launch the product there. However, it should be noted that the trailer itself did not provide any specific details of the processor.
Back in August, it was reported that Samsung has begun testing a mid-range chipset, Exynos 9630. It was further specified that the processor will be installed in the Galaxy A series in 2020.

Earlier this year, Samsung announced that it would introduce AMD’s graphics technology into its smartphone chip. The technology involves ultra-low power consumption technology and high-performance graphics technology.

Samsung mentioned this processor as “mobile intelligence” which suggests that the new chip might be related to artificial intelligence. Interestingly, Samsung mentioned that at its 2019 Samsung Technology Day event today, they will cover topics like 5G, GPU and artificial intelligence.
It is noteworthy that the company is also teasing artificial intelligence, so the Exynos SoC may come with a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) as seen on Exynos 9825 and 9820.
Recently, Samsung announced the Exynos 980 mobile processor. Technically, this is the company’s first processor that comes with an integrated 5G modem. Samsung is looking forward to make 5G more accessible to a wider audience so it is expected that Exynos 980 will power some premium and mid range Samsung phones in 2020.
