Some time ago, there was a report that Samsung intends to develop a fully proprietary chipset for the Galaxy S25. But the report raises a number of questions. Now another Korean news agency has made important points in this regard.
This news agency once again confirmed the same claim made in the previous report and wrote that Samsung will soon use the development of almost a thousand experts. Launches a completely proprietary chipset for the Galaxy S25. Samsung's goal is to develop a powerful, versatile chipset like Apple. On the other hand, the agency has announced that next year and 2024 there will be no news of the use of Exynos chips for Galaxy phones (possibly flagship models).
A Samsung executive told the agency that such a decision Adopted by senior executives in line with the company's long-term vision. In other words, it looks like by the time the flagship chip is ready in 2025, the Galaxy S23 and S24 will likely be available exclusively with the Snapdragon chip in the next two years. This is a risky decision because Samsung will no longer be able to use Exynos chips for its flagship phones due to a lack of chips or poor performance of Snapdragon chips.
As you probably know, in 2022 more countries received the Galaxy S22 with the first-generation Snapdragon 8 chip. It is worth mentioning that the Galaxy S series phones are launched every year with two different chipsets. One of these chipsets is Exynos and the other is Snapdragon. Given that Exynos chipsets are usually weaker than Qualcomm's competitors, this difference in performance is met with much controversy.
Although there have been two reports on the subject so far, both reports It is not clear exactly how the new chipset differs from the current Exynos chipsets. Although the Chinese company Meizu used a number of Exynos chips a few years ago, and recently, for example, Vivo also used the Exynos 1080 chip, but in the last few years, Samsung's flagship chips have not gone to other companies' phones. So these chips are already completely proprietary.
On the other hand, it is unclear whether Samsung will be able to beat Apple in this area by continuing to use Arm's designs. Many experts believe that TSMC chips are of better quality than Samsung chips. This means that in addition to design challenges, Samsung also has a lot of production issues. In this regard, we can mention the production of Snapdragon 8 Plus 1st generation by TSMC. This is while the standard model of the same chip is produced by Samsung, which apparently the quality of construction of this chip has been protested by Qualcomm executives.
