Attention is drawn to whether Samsung Electronics will re-apply its Exynos processor to the ‘Galaxy Note 20 series’ that will be released in the domestic market in the second half of this year.
This is because it is highly likely that Samsung Electronics will introduce a new Exynos processor, which has upgraded its performance compared to the previous one, while the release of Qualcomm’s ‘Snap Dragon 865 Plus’, which was scheduled for mass production in the second half, is unclear.
According to the electronic components industry on the 27th, China’s Meiji Wangjiang Chief Marketing Officer recently announced that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 Plus will not be released this year through Weibo.
Earlier, major IT specialists reported that in the third quarter of this year, Qualcomm will release Snapdragon 865 Plus, which has improved CPU (central processing unit) and GPU (graphic processing unit) performance compared to the existing Snapdragon 865 processor.
“It is unclear whether Qualcomm will postpone the release of (Snapdragon 865 Plus).” I guess it is due to. ”
Another US IT media carrier, Arena, also said, “It is not surprising that chipset makers are considering releasing chipsets according to the demands of (smartphone) manufacturers.” “There are cases where some companies have not already applied it to their flagship smartphones (Snapdragon 865) for reasons of high chipset prices.”
In the semiconductor industry, the possibility of expanding the application of the new Exynos processor (Exynos 992) to the Galaxy Note 20 series to differentiate it from the ‘Galaxy S20 Series’ released in the first half of the Samsung Electronics Wireless Division according to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 Plus gap in the second half Is paying attention to.
In fact, Samsung Electronics is known to have been conducting research and development on Exynos 992, which improved the power performance of Exynos 990 (processor applied to the Galaxy S20 series) from the first half of this year.
The industry believes that Samsung Electronics applied 6-nanometer (1nm = 1 billionth-meter) process to Exynos 992 to improve power performance compared to Exynos990 (based on 7-nanometer process).
An official from the semiconductor industry said, “There are many variables as there are several months remaining until the launch of the Galaxy Note 20, but the possibilities are open.” He said.
Meanwhile, according to market research firm Counterpoint Research, Samsung Electronics ranked third in the mobile application processor market last year with a 14.1% share. Qualcomm ranked first in the market, and the market share reached 33.4%.
