Samsung Mobile Phones to Be Equipped with Qualcomm Chip

1.0 (1 Vote)

Samsung favoured its own Exynos chipset for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, snubbing the industry trend of opting for Qualcomm’s processing fare.This might not be the case for the company’s future flagship devices however, as Samsung’s mobile chief J K Shin explains.

The Snapdragon 805 relies on four processing cores, while the Exynos 7 Octa features eight cores in total – two quad-core clusters, to be more specific, which can have all of their cores running at the same time if that is required. On the other hand, Qualcomm's solution can operate at much higher frequencies. Its cores tick at up to 2.7GHz, while the Exynos's high- and low-powered cores have top clock speeds of 1.9 and 1.3GHz respectively.

Qualcomm and Samsung have been close partners for years, with Samsung using Snapdragon chips in many of its flagship phones, including the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4, as well as the Galaxy Alpha, which were all released last year.
