2017 is rapidly drawing to a close, but we’re already off to the races on new tech for 2018 with Samsung being up next.
Samsung took to its Exynos account on Thursday to tease its next version of its processor line. According to various sources, it will be called the Exynos 9810 and Samsung will make it official on Jan. 4, 2018.

While Samsung devices in the United States use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon line, the South Korean company uses its own Exynos chips in locations such as South America and China. While your Galaxy S9 will (probably) have a Snapdragon 845 if you live in Michigan, folks in Seoul, South Korea will find the Exynos 9810 powering their device.
This announcement is not to be confused with the unveiling of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The Exynos 9810 will make its debut on Jan. 4, but the phones will more than likely make their debut at an event near the Mobile World Congress in Feb. 2018 in Spain.
With the S9 and S9+ having already passed through the FCC, and the processor on the horizon, it certainly seems as though things are speeding along for the new flagship.
