Over the past year, the market for mobile platforms has picked up slightly – Google has released its own Tensor chip, and MediaTek has prepared a flagship for 2022 that can compete in performance with the best Qualcomm solutions. Finally, Samsung has now announced the development of a mobile platform unique to Galaxy smartphones.
The company is working on a new smartphone chipset that will only be used in Samsung Galaxy models, Samsung mobile division chief Tae Moon Roh (TM Roh) said recently, according to a South Korean publication. iNews24. According to the publication, Tae Moon Ro announced the development of a special chipset in response to a question from an employee who wanted to know how the company intends to deal with the problem of device slowdowns caused by the Game Optimization Service (GOS). – Samsung previously apologized for such measures taken on the Galaxy S22 to save power and prevent overheating. In response, the top executive said that Samsung is creating its own mobile platform that will solve this problem.
Samsung has been bringing mobile chips onto the market under the Exynos brand for a long time – they are available for almost every manufacturer of Android smartphones, but are not used as often as competing solutions from MediaTek and Qualcomm. However, the chipsets have never been exclusive to Galaxy smartphones and are manufactured by Samsung Electronics LSI, an independent unit of Samsung Mobile.
Samsung’s decision to release chipsets exclusively for its smartphones seems somewhat unusual. How the emergence of new mobile platforms under its own brand will help solve the problem of slowing down performance is still unknown.
