According to a new report, Samsung intends to pay more attention to its low-cost handsets and In this regard, instead of focusing on developed countries, it will pay more attention to emerging markets than before. Part of this new strategy is to increase the use of Exynos-specific chips for these phones.
It previously unveiled the Galaxy A13 4G based on the Dimensity 700 chipset, but now plans to launch the phone in the North American market with the Exynos 850 chip. The previous generation of the phone, the Galaxy A12, received a lot of attention, and according to published statistics, about 51.8 million units of it were sold in 2021. This is the best-selling phone of 2021, and apparently the first smartphone to sell more than 50 million units. 3nm itself has encountered major problems. As you probably know, 3nm chips have better performance and lower power consumption compared to 4nm models. But with the advent of manufacturing technology, the challenges are even greater. Samsung plans to use 3nm technology for the next-generation Exynos 2200, which, given the low efficiency of its chip product lines, looks set to run out of Exynos flagship chips next year. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. - Especially for flagship phones. Although Samsung has spent a lot of money to build these chips, it has not yet been able to deliver such outstanding performance as MediaTek, Qualcomm and Apple. Until a few years ago, MediaTek was known as a maker of weak chips, but now it is one of Qualcomm's strong competitors and even outperforms Qualcomm products in some areas and areas.
Finally, we have to mention the margins created for Samsung's latest flagship chip, the Exynos 2200. For the first time, this chip uses a graphics processor designed by AMD, but this same graphics processor has become the Achilles heel of this chipset. According to studies, the processor in the Exynos 2200 is not much different from the Snapdragon 8 1st generation, but in terms of GPU, there is a big difference between the two. But under high pressure, both chips do not perform well, which Qualcomm executives seem to believe is due to the way the chip is made in Qualcomm factories.
It is believed that the chips produced in TSMC's factories are of better quality than the chips produced by Samsung. That's why Qualcomm executives have decided to outsource the production of the 1st generation Snapdragon Plus to the Taiwanese company. Samsung chips in general are not doing well, and there has been no significant improvement over the past few years. We have to see if Samsung can fix these problems in the near future.
- Which Galaxy S22 has better performance: Exynos 2200 or Snapdragon 8 generation 1?
