Samsung wants to develop processors tailor-made for Galaxy smartphones


Last updated: April 7th, 2022 at 09:05 UTC+02:00

Samsung was recently caught up in the GOS (Game Optimization Service) controversy after the launch of the Galaxy S22 series. The company had throttled the performance of games for more stable performance, owing to Exynos 2200’s and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1’s higher thermals. Now, the company says that it wants to make processors that are tailor-made for Galaxy smartphones.

According to reports coming out of South Korea, Samsung Electronics President TM Roh told the company’s employees that it will make application processing chipsets (processors) that will be tailored to the needs of Galaxy smartphones and tablets. He gave away this information when employees asked about the GOS issue. Sadly, he didn’t reveal what processor would it be and what the development timeline is.

Exynos under problem?

You might think that the company already makes such processors under the Exynos branding. However, Samsung’s System LSI arm makes those chips and it designs them in such a way that any smartphone maker can use them in their smartphones. So, they have to make sure that Exynos processors work with various permutations and combinations of hardware and software.

If we think about what TM Roh meant by his statement, Samsung might start developing processors that are tailor-made for Galaxy smartphones. Since the company would know which display, cameras, software, battery, and connectivity features it would equip a particular Galaxy phone with, it will make a chipset that specifically offers those features and is optimized to the fullest, thereby offering optimized performance and battery life.

Going by Samsung’s recent track record, it’s too early to say anything right now. A recent report had claimed that the company would use MediaTek chipsets in the Galaxy S22 FE and the Galaxy S23 series in Asian markets. So, we might be at least two years away from any tailor-made Samsung chipset.
