Samsung Rumored to be Working on its Own Flagship SoC For Galaxy Lineup

Rumor has it that Samsung’s smartphone division is working on their flagship mobile processor specifically for the Galaxy S lineup. Exynos processors may no longer be used by the business in its high-end handsets, according to reports. A new rumor says that we might soon find out more about the company’s high-end processor.

Ice Universe, a tipster, claims that at the introduction of the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung MX (mobile division) would provide additional information regarding its first in-house mobile processor. On February 1, 2023, during the Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event, Samsung MX CEO TM Roh could surprise fans with information on a “galaxy dedicated chipset“.

Although there hasn’t been any definitive information regarding the South Korean company’s first high-end chipset’s features leaked, it is reported that the CPU will be produced utilizing Samsung Foundry’s second or third-generation 3nm GAA production technology. Over a thousand professionals, including a seasoned Apple semiconductor expert, have allegedly joined Samsung MX’s engineering team. Exynos processors could eventually vanish from Galaxy smartphones and tablets if its initial chip succeeds. 

Samsung Aims at Reviving its Exynos Lineup by Handing it Over to a Separate Team

It was previously reported that Samsung also aims to revive its Exynos SoC by including it in an upcoming release. According to tipper @RGcloudS, the Galaxy S22 FE and Galaxy Tab S8 FE will be powered by a 4nm Exynos 2300 chipset. Both smartphones are expected to be introduced at Galaxy Unpacked 2023. The Galaxy S22 FE is said to include a 108MP ISOCELL HM6 camera and will cost around the same as the Galaxy A73 5G

The majority of Samsung’s flagship smartphones are typically available in one of two main configurations: one with a Qualcomm SoC and the other with an Exynos CPU. In the past, variants with Qualcomm chipsets have outperformed those with Exynos CPUs in terms of thermal performance, power economy, performance speed, and battery life. These variations have improved power efficiency as well. People who live in countries where Samsung launches its Exynos-powered smartphones often gripe that their devices cost the same amount yet perform poorly.

Purchasing CPUs from other producers would be more costly for Samsung since it already has the expertise necessary to make its chipsets. However, System LSI isn’t making high-quality chipsets, therefore Samsung’s smartphone business division had decided to create its team to produce processors.
