Samsung, like every year, will launch a new version of its flagship Exynos chipset that will power its Galaxy S10 (or whatever moniker the device comes under). The latest Galaxy S9 and S9+ are powered by the Exynos 9810, and if the company follows its tradition, the same chip will also power the Note 9 phablet.
The previous generation S series smartphones saw the debut of Exynos 8895, which succeeded the Exynos 8890 that was responsible for Galaxy S7 and S7 Plus' performance. Now it seems the company has already started working on the successor of Exynos 9810, according to a new image by leakster Ice universe.
The new processor seems to be listed as one of the projects by a person involved in the development process. There isn't much information about the chip's internal available. The use of 7nm process seems unlikely as the company might not have the production equipment ready by early 2019, but a more powerful GPU can be expected with tad higher clock speeds. The company might break the 3GHz clock speed barrier with its 9820 chip.

The chip might also improve the power efficiency of the phones, and come with support for 5G, something Samsung has already tipped for the future.
It's too early to pass a judgment on how fast the upcoming processor will perform, but we might get a deeper insight into company's plan after the Galaxy Note 9 see the light of day.
Samsung, recently also revealed how it managed to ramp up the numbers of slow-mo shots from 240fps on the S8 / S8+ to 960fps on the S9 / S9+? The credit actually goes to the new triple-stacked camera module that Samsung used this time around.
The latest camera module comprises of a CMOS sensor with a readout circuit underneath that runs four times faster the previous generation circuit. On top of that, there's a dedicated DRAM chip that allows the users what company calls "buttery-smooth, Super Slow-mo videos." But the only thing is the low resolution, which might be increased with next year's flagship. It should be noted that the same technology is also responsible for the enhanced low-light photography on the latest flagships. And we are certain that the technology will be borrowed by the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 as well.
