Now one of the Korean sites has reported that Samsung's situation in this field has deteriorated to such an extent that the head of the company's mobile department during He has traveled to the United States twice in recent months to request more chipsets from a mobile chipset maker (most likely Qualcomm). Informed sources say that the request of the head of Samsung Mobile Department has been rejected.
Apparently, the head of the chip manufacturer has said that they want to increase the overall supply but will not be able to increase the supply of chipsets required by Samsung alone. It is said that one of the senior officials of Samsung's mobile division was in the United States for 3 months, but in the end he could not achieve much success in this field.
Informed sources added that the rejection of Samsung's request is very strange considering the size of the company. On the other hand, a large part of Samsung's mid-range and low-end handsets are manufactured by Chinese companies, and these companies also have to supply the parts needed for these handsets. As a result, Samsung's position as a buyer has become weaker than in the past.
It seems that these trips of Samsung executives have not been completely fruitless and have provided some of the chips they need. In any case, the global chip shortage crisis is so serious that Samsung's key partners have also rejected its executives. Given that the CEO of AMD said that the crisis will subside only slightly in the second half of 2022, it seems that smartphone makers will have to deal with these problems for a long time.
