We recently knew that Samsung is going to launch its third foldable device this year, maybe it will be a rollable smartphone, as rumors suggest. Well, the latest information comes from a trusted informant Ice Universe.
According to the report, the next-generation Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 foldable devices will use Qualcomm’s unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ processor. In addition to confirming the process for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, insiders have suggested that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ will be based on TSMC’s 4nm process.
The vanilla Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which drives the Galaxy S22 trio in some areas, should also be as powerful as the 4nm disc set and its next “extra” version, you could argue. However, you should keep in mind that this is a processor made by Samsung.
The chipmaker of the Korean company is always lower than that of TSMC. Both the latest Qualcomm flagship chipset and Samsung alternative Exynos 2200 are energy efficient processors due to Samsung’s low technology.
TSMC is far ahead of Samsung in developing contract chips. Large Taiwanese is a specialized manufacturer of Apple’s A and M series processors. And Qualcomm might still be more interested in developing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 than Samsung if it were not for the inadequate issue last year.
US chipmaker TSMC can only do Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+. However, the next generation (3nm) processors from Samsung came out in favor of TSMC. Consider that time has passed to Samsung. If this change continues, Korea will soon only make its own Exynos chips.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 could break heads at any time in the third quarter of 2022. We also heard from Samsung that it announced its third foldable device this year. It could be a cell phone, as recent rumors suggest. If these rumors are true, we will hear more about this phone in the coming months. We will notify you at any time.
