Samsung Denies Development of Custom CPU Cores

Samsung went all-in on Snapdragon chips for its recently released Galaxy S23 series. Furthermore, it is expected that the company will follow suit with its upcoming Galaxy S24 series. According to recent reports, Samsung has resumed development of custom CPU cores for future Galaxy devices. Samsung, on the other hand, claims that the reports are false.

In response to the rumour, Samsung has issued an official statement to SamMobile stating that the development is false. This clearly shows that the company has not begun developing custom CPU cores for future smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

A recent media report that Samsung has established an internal team dedicated to CPU core development is not true. Contrary to the news, we have long had multiple internal teams responsible for CPU development and optimization, while constantly recruiting global talents from relevant fields.

Historically, Samsung’s Exynos chips have used ARM’s stock CPU cores, and according to the statement, this may continue. If this is the case, the OEM will be unable to make changes to its stock core designs due to ARM’s recent licensing terms.

Samsung has yet to make a comeback when it comes to custom chipsets, though work on developing them from scratch is underway. If all goes well, Samsung’s flagship chipset should be available in the coming years.

We anticipate that the upcoming Exynos 2400 chipset will enable the return. The CPU, as previously reported, will have a 10-core architecture, as opposed to the current Octa-Core CPUs. In the coming months, we should learn more about the situation.
