Exynos processors may appear on Google smartphones

Samsung Exynos branded processors constantly cause user dissatisfaction: compared to Qualcomm, they

less productive and autonomous. Recently, outraged users even filed a petition demanding not to use Exynos in smartphones. But next year everything can change.

What's new

It is reported that Samsung will produce Exynos processors for Google. Initially, the corporation planned to make chips on its own, but as a result settled on Exynos.

True, it will be a completely different platform: with two high-performance Cortex-A78 cores, two mid-range Cortex-A76 cores and four energy-efficient Cortex-A55, as well as an unannounced Mali MP20 GPU based on the new ARM architecture, codenamed Borr. Samsung will use the 5 nm process technology.

Google will take on the development of a computing unit including a Google Core ISP image processor and an NPU neural processor to speed up AI tasks.

Where such a SoC will be used is not yet clear. Perhaps it will be a new Pixel 6 smartphone or laptops running Chrome OS, in which Google now installs Intel processors.

Facebook is also allegedly interested in a partnership with Samsung, which can use Exynos chips in augmented and virtual reality headsets.
