Samsung is one of the biggest companies in the world - as it’s a well-known brand in almost every country where tech is popular amongst the users. Samsung is mostly known for its smartphones, with the likes of the Galaxy S and Note series being amongst the most popular phones in the world. Recently, even the mid range devices like the A and M series have gotten a lot of praise and attention from enthusiasts around the world. However, there’s a lot of other things that Samsung does really well - such as other tech devices like Smart TVs, smartwatches, and many more electrical appliances.
Another major thing that Samsung has proven itself in is the production of chipsets for different companies. It has been making its own Exynos lineup of chips for a lot of the global variants of its devices - and now it’s time to move on to other phones as well.
Qualcomm, one of the biggest names in the smartphone chipset market, has reportedly chosen Samsung to make its newest midrange SoC, being the Snapdragon 750. This will be built on Samsung’s very own 8nm technology, and will be seen on a Xiaomi phone first, reportedly the Mi 10 Lite 5G. Samsung is also expected to use this chipset in its own upcoming Galaxy A42. Instead of opting for TMSC like usual - a company which has a staggering 58% share in the SoC market - Qualcomm opted for Samsung, an upcoming proven competitor as well.
Not only the 750, it’s been rumoured that both companies have also agreed on a contract worth about a billion dollars which will make Samsung the manufacturer of the upcoming Snapdragon 875 flagship chipset as well. If this is the case, then the Korean giant is definitely going to look forward to better days in the future, as it’s growing rapidly due to deals with the likes of IBM, Qualcomm, Nvidia and more. Samsung says it’s going to spend over a 100 billion dollars to become the biggest SoC developer in the world by 2030.
