TM Roh: Samsung will build special processors for Galaxy phones

Samsung’s Exynos chipset has been shipped in Galaxy phones for many years, despite customers wanting better Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. The company decided to break with this pattern by offering the Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S22 Series smartphones in all of its international markets. The company now plans to build its own processors, according to reports.

Inews24 reports that Samsung Electronics President TM. Roh said last month that his company is working to develop a processor specifically for its Galaxy phones. Roh stated that Samsung would make an AP (application processor) unique for Galaxy. Answering a question about the Game Optimisation Controversy, Roh was responding to an employee’s query. He didn’t explain his intentions at the meeting.

You may recall that some Samsung smartphones and tablets include the Game Optimizations Service (GOS) on them. The service optimizes the system’s performance while gaming to prolong battery life. It has been found that it can throttle the performance of up to 10,000 applications. This software also appeared to prevent benchmarking platforms like Geekbench, such that the past four Galaxy S Series smartphones as well as the Galaxy Tab S8 were banned from the platform.

This means that Samsung may be trying to emulate Apple’s A-series Bionic chipset and Google’s Tensor system on-chip (SoC) last year. Samsung has its Exynos chipset but it is also available for other Android smartphone manufacturers. They aren’t used nearly as often as MediaTek and Qualcomm chipsets. A separate company, Samsung Electronics LSI also produces them. Samsung Mobile, on the other hand makes its smartphones. The company could make its chipsets more compatible with flagship smartphones by bringing the manufacturing unit within the organization.
