Overall, the Exynos 9820 is 40 percent better than the previous chipset. Along with the chipset comes the Mali-G76 MP12 processor which has more execution units, double channels and is 35 percent more energy efficient than the Exynos 9810.
For photography enthusiasts, this chipset has advanced ISP that supports up to 5 sensing elements. Both selfie and rear cameras would be able to support 22MP sensors and it also supports dual camera setups with a maximum of 16MP sensor. Recording videos on this chip supports 8K 30fps and 4K 120fps and 10bit HEVC/H.264/VP9 codec. Displaywise, it supports 4K resolutions.
