Samsung Galaxy S10 to come with dual-core NPU!

Samsung is reportedly working for a dual-core NPU (Neural Processing Unit) which will debut on the upcoming Galaxy S10. This AI-specific co-processor aims to boost AI task for Samsung’s 7nm Exynos 9820 chipset. The new NPU will enhance the camera on the S10 by working together with the ISP (Image Signal Processor). Video recording and voice recognition will also benefit from this changes.

Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled their first chipset with dedicated NPU. It allows AI features like automatic scene recognition and artificial bokeh effect.

However, Samsung is known to launch two different versions of their devices. One runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon, and the other on its homegrown Exynos chipset. Countries like the United States, Canada, China, Hongkong, and Japan always comes with a Snapdragon chipset. Other countries using the Exynos chipset like the UK, India, and South Korea will more likely get to experience this boost. Nevertheless, rumor has it that the upcoming Snapdragon 855 will also include a dedicated NPU.
