One of the whistleblowers recently claimed that Samsung wants to unveil a completely dedicated chip for the flagship Galaxy S series phones in 2025. Although some users think that the Exynos flagship chips are also completely proprietary, it should be noted that these chips are not only used for the Galaxy S series. Samsung is also making some of these chips available to companies such as Vivo and Motorola.
Concerned about the performance of the Galaxy S22 series, they are concerned about the status of their flagships. They are also said to be dissatisfied with the poor thermal management of the 1st generation Snapdragon 8 and Exynos 2200 chips. So like Apple, which has been using proprietary chips for the iPhone for years, Samsung wants to take a similar approach to its flagships.
Overall, if the news is true, the future of Exynos' latest flagship chips There is an aura of ambiguity. Because it seems that Samsung executives have come to the conclusion that it is useless to continue the current practice, and as a result, there may be no news of the introduction of Exynos flagship chips until 2025. Of course, this is good news for fans of the Galaxy S series phones. Because these users have been saying for years that Samsung should launch all of these phones in all markets with the Snapdragon chipset.
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. Because of these protests, Samsung decided to work with AMD to develop a powerful GPU for its flagship chips. The Exynos 2200 is the first Samsung chip to hit the market with an AMD graphics processor. But despite all the hopes, the chip came as a disappointment. Specifically, the most important difference between this chip and the Snapdragon 8 Generation 1 is related to the GPU. Because both processors use the same kernels. The chip could not be a strong competitor to its competitors. On the other hand, we can mention MediaTek, which until a few years ago was known as a manufacturer of weak chips, but now it is making more and more noise and its market share is increasing.
In any case, if this news If Samsung is trying to change the direction of the Exynos chips, there will probably be more reports and rumors in the coming months.
