Late reports recommend that Samsung might collaborate with Qualcomm to deliver Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chips for select models of the World S25 series. South Korean tech giant Samsung has stepped up with their game when it comes to chips. Samsung is expected to use its own Exynos 2400 processor in some Galaxy S24 phones, but a year later, Samsung may start using custom Snapdragon chips.
Samsung to manufacture Snapdragon 8 Gen 4
Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor will be manufactured using TSMC's 3nm (N3E) process, as revealed by insider Revegnus. On the other hand, Samsung Foundry's 3nm GAP (3GAP) process is said to be used in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 For Galaxy variant. Based on this development, Samsung Foundry's 3nm node may be able to compete with TSMC's 3nm process in terms of efficiency and performance.
In the event that the bits of hearsay demonstrate precise, this would check the principal occasion in some time where an organization utilizes two unique providers for a similar chip, likened to Apple's methodology with the iPhone 6s' A9 processor. In that scenario, TSMC's 16nm process and Samsung's 14nm process were used to manufacture some A9 chips.
