Galaxy S9 for the United States might use an older 10nm production process

The Galaxy S9 will feature two chipset models; an Exynos 9810 version for different regions and one featuring a Snapdragon 845, which is going to be reserved for customers living in the United States. Unfortunately, the problem now lies that there is a rumor that claims the Snapdragon 845 is going to be made on the 10nm LPE process.

The Exynos 9810, on the other hand, will be made on the 10nm LPP process, which is more advanced. This will result in the chipset delivering more performance than the Snapdragon 845 while consuming less power in return. While the Snapdragon 845 is still going to feature a 10nm process, the less efficient LPE process will result in users not experiencing the same battery life as the Exynos 9810 version.

Qualcomm could add battery saving features in the Snapdragon 845, so do not get too bummed that the device is going to be underwhelming. If anything, it could be better than you expected. For starters, according to a leaked phone case render, the fingerprint reader positioning on the Galaxy S9 is still going to be at the back, but at a much easier location to reach with your finger.

If you were too worried about the lame facial recognition feature on the Galaxy S8, rumor has it that the Galaxy S9 will come improved facial recognition plus a faster iris scanner. The reason why these improvements are expected to take place is because there is a rumor going around that the chipset inside the smartphone will feature its own AI engine.

Unfortunately, you could also be expected to paying a higher price tag for the Galaxy S9 but at the end of the day, when the sun settles, you are getting a more capable, faster and potentially intelligent smartphone.
