Analysts believe this move would help Samsung boost its mobile AP business. Its next flagship chip is seemingly called the Exynos 1000 and the report indicates it will be sold to other manufacturers as well.
Samsung reportedly ships around 150-200 million units of SoCs a year, and most of them are utilized for its own phones. With its renewed focus on performance, the company is apparently looking to grab some market share from Qualcomm, which is the current market leader.
Samsung supposedly wants to use this opportunity to position its chips as an affordable alternative for mobile vendors. It already sells chips to Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo.
Does this mean all Galaxy S21 variants will be powered by an Exynos chip?
This sounds like a risky plan for 2021 if you consider current and projected flagship shipments. Thus, it’s best to take this bit with a hefty dose of salt.
