Samsung Electronics Co. said on Thursday it has clinched a deal with German carmaker Audi AG to supply automotive processors designed for in-vehicle information and entertainment systems.
The South Korean chipmaker, which first showcased the automotive chip brand in October 2018, said the Exynos Auto V9 will be utilised for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) solutions for Audi cars, which deliver various information, as well as entertainment content, Yonhap news agency reported.
Through the IVI solution running on Exynos Auto V9, drivers will obtain details on conditions of automobiles on a real-time basis.
The Exynos Auto V9 will enable the IVI solution to control six displays at the same time and support up to 12 cameras, Samsung said.
With three graphics processing units, it is capable of running multiple applications simultaneously, it added.
The neural processing unit can also promptly and accurately process various data, including drivers’ voice, face and movements to provide optimized information.
Samsung said it will continue to release various automotive chips down the road for other functions, including the Advanced Driver Assistance System that warns drivers of potential threats.
Samsung Galaxy S11 likely to have a 108MP camera
It has been looking likely for a while now that the Samsung Galaxy S11 will have a 108MP camera, as Samsung has announced just such a sensor and it has been rumored for inclusion on the phone, but a new rumor suggests Samsung will actually use a different, currently unknown 108MP piece of tech.
Going by what is tipped by one of the reliable tipsters Ice Universe, the Galaxy S11 will have a “new” 108MP sensor. This could mean, it may not be the same 108MP sensor that Xiaomi will use in its Mi Note 10. It could be a new/second-gen 108MP sensor. It is possible that Samsung is using the same 108MP sensor but with better processing followed by some software enhancements. Or a completely new sensor could include some tweaks, minor advancements in terms of photography.
The 108MP ISOCELL sensor by Samsung has Tetracell technology which is essentially the pixel binning tech where four pixels are merged to create a single bigger pixel. This means the 108MP sensor will be able to click 27MP shots with high sharpness.
If Samsung is using the same 108MP that it made official two months back then it would be interesting to see what changes it will bring to Galaxy S11 to show some photography chops.
