A leak tells how Samsung is entering the chip sector

The South Korean newspaper Inews24 has published an indiscretion which, although far from being official, has awakened the attention of mobile fans: Samsung he would decide to take the reins of his own destiny and of self-produced custom chips for the Galaxy S series to be released in 2025. Not only that, the company also intends to produce microprocessors for the competition, covering the needs of industry mastodons such as Motorola and Vivo.

Samsung and chips, a complex story

The leak also received the endorsement of the creator IceUniverse, a well-known informant in the South Korean tech environment. Furthermore, the contents it exhibits are not at all dazed considering the broad panorama of the sector and the fact that already in the past rumors corridors had already suggested this kind of solution. Despite the great performance, some Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200 users have complained about problems with overheating. Hence the maneuvers of the world of high-end telephony to resort to better optimized alternatives.

A case, but not an isolated one

On closer inspection, the episode involving Samsung is not too dissimilar from similar situations that have affected practically all industries in the sector. The substantial problem is shared: the increasing power of the processors is not compensated by a substantial improvement of the cooling systems of devices. More efficient heatsinks are constantly being studied, however the space offered by the physical structures of smartphones is all in all limited, generally there is no room for a fan of those that could instead be inserted on laptops.

For market reasons, however, manufacturers of portable digital equipment must every year promote the launch of cutting-edge processors, more and more powerful, but the rest of the hardware elements struggle to keep up and everyone is forced to put a stop to it. artificial – and often hidden – to the semiconductors used.

The hypothesis of Samsung’s self-management of chips

By concentrating the production of chips on itself, Samsung would therefore end up following in Apple’s footsteps, starting a technological genesis which, although a slave to the critical issues shared by the entire category, would be able to provide a structural element tailored to the needs. of the Galaxy, which on paper could optimize GPU management. In the past, Samsung had installed custom CPUs on Exynos chips, however the company’s CPU section was permanently closed in December 2019, which further suggests that the South Korean giant may seriously consider a new approach.
