Samsung just unveiled the latest member of their Exynos 7 family which they are calling the Exynos 9610. Unlike their flagship Exynos 9810 SOC, the 9610 is rather a mid ranger with some pretty impressive capabilities for that segment.
EXYNOS 9610 SPECIFICATIONS

- GNSS: GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo
The Exynos 9610 brings the 10nm Process Technology to Mid-range segment. It seems like Samsung is well aware of the fact that the upcoming 700 Series SOCs are going use this technology & manufacturers going to use these SOCs in their Mid-range devices. So, looks like Samsung wants to make sure that their devices do not compromise of Performance & Efficiency like they used to do with some older Mid-range Exynos SOCs.
Alongside, these features the Exynos 9610 also supports some AI capabilities like Deep Learning based Visual Processing which sounds pretty cool but, we have to see how they are planning to take advantage of those AI capabilities as AI in smartphones right now, seems to be pretty limited to some Machine Learning capabilities in the Camera software.
Samsung also says that, always-on sensing applications which will likely require instant feedback (for example: Gesture Recognition, Context Awareness etc.), are enabled by an embedded low-power sensor hub based on Cortex-M4F which is capable of managing the sensors in real time without the help of the processor.
The Exynos 9610 isn’t in mass production right now but, Samsung should be pushing the SOC into production sometime within the second half of this year.
