Samsung Exynos chips could land in loads more Galaxy phones next year

TL;DR

  • Samsung is reportedly pushing to increase the number of Galaxy phones with Exynos power.
  • This could lead to Samsung doubling shipments of Exynos processors in 2022.
  • It’s believed that this initiative applies to mid-range and low-end phones.

Samsung traditionally sticks to either Qualcomm or its in-house Exynos chipsets for its high-end smartphones, with the likes of the Americas and China gaining Snapdragon variants and the rest of the world getting Exynos models.

Now, Korea’s ET News reports that Samsung Electronics is pushing to “raise the proportion” of Exynos chipsets in Galaxy phones from 20% to between 50% and 60%. The outlet added that Samsung’s LSI division will therefore more than double shipments of Exynos chipsets in 2022.

An industry source told ET News that Samsung has addressed two key Exynos issues with the next generation of chipsets:

I know that the 5G communication and heat issue (sic), which were the most problematic issues in Exynos, have been resolved in the next production.

The outlet adds that the push for more Exynos chipsets applies to mid-range and low-end smartphones. Most of Samsung’s recent budget phones have been powered by Snapdragon or Mediatek chipsets, so there’s definitely scope for Exynos growth in this regard.

In fact, Samsung’s most capable mid-range chipset, the Exynos 1080, didn’t actually find its way into any Galaxy smartphones (being used in Vivo phones). This was despite the fact that it was roughly on par with the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC and Snapdragon 780G.

What does this apparent Exynos push mean for Samsung’s flagship phones though? Well, a leaker claimed back in August that more markets would get the Snapdragon version of the Galaxy S22 series phones due to yield issues related to the Exynos 2200 chipset.
