The president of Samsung Mobile has announced that Samsung is working on a “unique” chipset for its Galaxy line of smartphones.
While there is limited information available on the executive’s announcement, there are several questions that remain unanswered regarding this event. There has been a lot of buzz around the Exynos 2200 and how its Xclipse 920 GPU based on AMD’s RDNA2 architecture will shake up the industry. Unfortunately, this was not the case, and according to the statement, Samsung’s goal is to develop a “unique” processor for the Galaxy line of devices. The statement is vague and leaves more questions than answers.
The Samsung president did not say if the future custom chip will match the Exynos branding. Another question worth asking is, will Samsung continue to use ARM’s high-performance, low-power Cortex cores, or does the Korean giant intend to revive the Mongoose cores it abandoned some time ago? Since this chipset is expected to be different from any other offering on the market, the aforementioned questions will help make it stand out, along with performance and power efficiency improvements.
