Samsung’s latest denial of reports that it has established a new internal CPU development team has sparked a flurry of discussion in the tech industry. With the South Korean tech giant having recently switched to Qualcomm chips for its Galaxy S23 series, the question on many people’s minds is whether Samsung will be able to innovate and stay competitive in the highly competitive smartphone market.
In this article, we’ll take a closer look at Samsung’s statement and what it means for the future of its devices. We’ll also explore the rumors of an in-house chipset for the Galaxy S25 and what impact it could have on Samsung’s overall performance. Read on to find out more.
Samsung Continues to Use Qualcomm Chips for Future Galaxy Devices
Samsung recently made headlines for completely switching to Qualcomm chips for its Galaxy S23 series. Now, it appears that the South Korean tech giant will also be using a Qualcomm chip for the upcoming Galaxy S24 series. However, recent reports that Samsung had restarted development of custom CPU cores for future Galaxy devices have been denied by the company.
Samsung Clarifies Reports on Internal CPU Core Development Team
Samsung Electronics recently issued a statement denying the reports of a new internal CPU core development team. According to the statement, “A recent media report that Samsung has established an internal team dedicated to CPU core development is not true. Contrary to the news, we have long had multiple internal teams responsible for CPU development and optimization, while constantly recruiting global talents from relevant fields.”
This means that the company has not started developing custom CPU cores for future smartphones, tablets, and laptops. It’s likely that Samsung will continue to use ARM’s stock CPU cores in its future devices, given that ARM has changed its licensing terms and no longer allows OEMs to make changes to its stock designs.
Samsung Under Pressure to Improve Processor Performance
Samsung has been facing pressure from consumers to improve the performance of its Exynos processors, which have been underwhelming compared to Qualcomm chips. The company was also involved in a controversy related to GOS (Game Optimization Service), which reduced peak gaming performance on the Galaxy S22 series for stable sustained performance. Samsung had to offer an option to turn off GOS on its smartphones through a software update.
Samsung’s In-House Chipset for Galaxy S25
Although there has been no official information, some reports suggest that Samsung MX, the company’s mobile phone division, has created an internal team to develop in-house smartphone chipsets from scratch. It is rumored that Samsung will switch to an in-house chipset for the Galaxy S25 in early 2025. This move could help Samsung to address the issues with Exynos processors and improve overall performance in future devices.
Well folks, it looks like Samsung won’t be developing custom CPU cores for its devices anytime soon, despite some recent reports. While the company has long had internal teams responsible for CPU development and optimization, it seems that it will continue to use ARM’s stock CPU cores in its future devices. However, the rumors of an in-house chipset for the Galaxy S25 are still swirling, and many are wondering whether this move will help Samsung to improve its processor performance and stay ahead of the competition.
If you’re a Samsung fan, be sure to keep an eye on the company’s future developments. And if you’re not, well, it’s always interesting to see how the big players in the tech industry navigate the challenges of a rapidly changing market.
