Samsung smartphone manager Roh Tae-moon said at a town hall meeting on April 7, 2022, “we’re making a unique AP for the Galaxy”. Striving for custom silicon chips Samsung is confident that it can beat Apple not simply by customizing the chip, but by putting performance first.
MacRumors reports that Samsung and Oppo plan to switch from a custom silicone chip to Apple’s A-series chips in the iPhone competition.
Oppo is also planning to launch its custom application processor manufactured with TSMC’s 6nm process, in 2023. Followed by integrating an AP and a Modem further with a 4nm process in 2024.
These chips may be comparable to the leading and advanced chip producers Qualcomm and Mediatek. Manufacturing these advanced new chips they have to fight the GPS issues and the poor thermal performance.
