Flagship SOCs Specifications Comparison

Samsung Exynos 9810 Vs. 8895 Flagship SOCs Specifications Comparison

In this post, we are comparing the specifications of Samsung Exynos 9810 Vs. 8895 SOCs which power their flagship devices in some markets. Since both of them are flagship SOCs, we decided to compare them to help you understand the differences.

Like Apple and Huawei, Samsung also manufactures its own processors. You must have seen most of the Samsung phones powered by Exynos processors. Exynos 8895 was the Samsung’s flagship processor of 2017 and in 2018 Samsung has moved to the Exynos 9810.

Both the processors are one among the best SoCs for Android smartphones. Here we are going to compare them side by side and see which one is better. Starting with the Exynos 8895, it was made on the 10 nm FinFET process. It is a quad-core processor with 2.3GHz quad-core (Custom CPU) and 1.7GHz quad-core (Cortex-A53). This processor is coupled with Mali-G71 MP20 GPU.

On the other hand, The Exynos 9810 is made on the 2nd generation 10 nm FinFET process. This oct-core processor is more powerful and consists of up to 2.9 GHz quad-core (Custom CPU) and up to 1.9 GHz quad-core (Cortex-A55). The processor is coupled with Mali-G71 MP18 GPU. Comparing the on-paper specs, it is clear that Exynos 9810 is way better than the Exynos 8895.

The Exynos 8895 LTE modem delivers download speeds up to 1 Gbps, and uploads speed up to 150 Mbps. Here again, the Exynos 9810 wins the battle with download speeds up to 1.2 Gbps and upload speeds up to 200 Mbps.

Both the processors support 4K UHD display and 4K UHD 120fps video encoding and decoding. The Exynos 8895 support single camera up to 28 MP and dual 16  MP + 16 MP camera. But the Exynos 9810 support up to 24 MP single camera and dual 16 MP + 16 MP camera.

Now, these are all the one paper differences that Exynos 8895 and Exynos 9810 have. But what about the real world performance of them. So to check that we compared the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. Note 8 packs Exynos 8895 with 6 GB RAM, and Samsung Galaxy S9+ has Exynos 9810. Since both the phones differ only in the processor, so a test speed on both devices will tell you the difference.

In our speed test, we started different types of apps and games on both the devices. Surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 does the speed test in nearly time as of the Samsung Galaxy S9+. So on paper Exynos 9810 might be more powerful than the Exynos 8895. But in practice, there is not much difference in the two. Though the Exynos 9810 is a winner here still Exynos 8895 is a great SoC.
