The processor’s new bandwidth compression technology drastically reduces the amount of bandwidth required to encode and decode video files. Furthermore, its upgraded perceptual video coding algorithm optimizes image quality by enhancing parts of the image frame that are deemed to be sensitive to viewers based on human beings’ visual cognitive characteristics. The Exynos 990’s advanced NPU also enables users to inject some creative flair into their content by adding effects like bokeh for film-like depth of field.
In addition to empowering the creation of incredible content, the Exynos 990 opens the door for users to enjoy much more seamless and immersive viewing experiences. That’s because, in addition to offering 10-bit video and HDR display capability, the processor supports 4K UHD at 60Hz refresh-rate and QHD+ at 120Hz that make animations smoother – even on devices with multiple displays – and reduces screen tearing when gaming. This makes it easier for users to immerse themselves in the on-screen action.
Because mobile security is more important than ever, the Exynos 990 features a wealth of security enhancements that safeguard users’ personal information. Included among these are a new DRAM encryption engine, a stage-2 memory protection unit (S2MPU), and a newly integrated secure element (iSE) layer that stores and manages users’ personal data separately from the operating system environment. To further bolster security, and to streamline authentication processes, the processor also includes a physically unclonable function (PUF), also known as a digital fingerprint, that generates an unclonable key for data encryption using the unique physical characteristics of each chip.
