Qualcomm, the long-standing mobile partner of the year, today announced the extension of its partnership with Samsung. Their licensing agreement, if not extended by then, will cover seven years, through 2030, and will cover 3G, 4G, 5G and 6G technologies. Different categories of products are affected by the agreement between the two companies, which are smartphones of course, but also tablets or “extended reality” and computers. Remember that the latest model introduced by the company, which is Galaxy Book 2 ProIt was powered by an Intel chip.
The announcement, unsurprisingly, is part of a larger piece of news. The period is the publication of the financial results of the new technology giants for the second quarter of 2022, commented by the CEOs of their shareholders. In this capacity, Cristiano Amon, President of Qualcomm, provided selection guides to evoke Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series. Remember that, like every year, the flagships of South Korea have so far been equipped with SoC Qualcomm (Snapdragon) in the US and Korea, and Exynos in other markets. “What you have to say is that Snapdragons are going to move [les] Galaxy production lines [de Samsung]their main products. And what can I say [cette] The history is that we represented 75% of the Galaxy S22 prior to this agreement. We have to tell you that we will do much better than that for the Galaxy S23 and beyond”does he have specific.
Exynos in the hot seat?
Statement adds to the tumultuous news for Samsung chips. So it’s possible that the latest generation Exynos SoCs, which are less successful than expected, will be abandoned on the Galaxy S23, or restricted to fewer markets.
The South Korean giant, however, wants to be reassured. As I mentioned Corian Mail Economic DailyIts CEO also spoke after publishing his latest financial results: “We are currently revamping our SoC business model, and implementing measures to enhance our competitiveness in the medium and long term. We are particularly focused on enhancing the competitiveness of our next generation Exynos mobile devices.” However, it is rumored that Samsung will work on a new type of SoCwhich can replace the Exynos series.
We’ll have to wait until the beginning of 2023 to discover the Galaxy S23 series and see if Qualcomm will fully equip it. By then, Samsung will have formalized its new foldable models, and Galaxy Z Flip 4 And the Galaxy Z Fold 4 which, like its predecessors, will likely be powered by Snapdragon chips, and it will go official on August 10.
