Samsung and Intel announced a major performance breakthrough in the 5G SA core network. Both companies have implemented optimized data packet processing and a simplified system configuration to hugely improve network performance.
Using the 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor and the Intel Ethernet Network Adapter E810 with Enhanced Dynamic Device Personalization (DDP), Samsung has achieved a 5G SA Core data processing capacity of 305Gbps*.
* The capacity of 305Gpbs is equal to hosting 200,000+ users that are live-streaming standard definition videos simultaneously.
The resulting performance helps accelerate the delivery of next-generation, high-capacity networks. This will also raise more immersive 5G use cases that need much higher data volume processing such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and vehicle-to-everything (V2X).
Samsung Electronics Networks Business’ Senior Vice President said – “Through close collaboration with Intel, we were able to achieve an industry-leading performance with our 5G SA Core. Samsung’s cloud-native 5G SA Core, through its highly flexible and scalable design, will enable our customers to launch 5G services more swiftly and cost-effectively.”
Vice President of Wireline and Core Network Division, Intel stated – “The transition to 5G Standalone Core is essential to achieve the full potential of 5G. This milestone achieved with Samsung is a verification of how strong industry collaboration and the use of innovative technologies can enhance performance to accelerate this transition and pave the way to new network and edge services.”

Component partners of Samsung say that the number of parts ordered for the two recent models did not change significantly or decrease slightly compared to expectations.
Earlier, it was expected that the Korean tech giant would order 12 to 13 million units of parts for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5 by the end of this year. However, recent reports revealed that there may be a decrease of about 1 million units.
Samsung Powers Up: Delivering a Whopping 70 Million OLED Display for iPhone 15 Series!
By the end of 2023, Samsung Display is likely to supply nearly 70 million units of OLED for the iPhone 15 series to Apple. The company’s OLED volume by model is estimated to be in the low 20 million units for the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, 9 to 10 million for Pro, and ~ 30 million for Pro Max.
Among the four iPhone 15 models, the 15 Pro Max OLED estimate, which Apple plans to produce the most, is four times higher for Samsung than for LG Display. Industry watchers say that Samsung Display’s iPhone 15 Pro Max OLED volume is in the mid-20 million units, three times that of LG Display.
The prevailing view is that LG Display will have 15% more OLED volume than Samsung Display (9 million to early 10 million units). Those who see it differently predict that Samsung Display will secure around 20 million units of 15% OLED, which will be more than LG Display.
Apple’s Surprising Victory: Takes the Crown in Indian Smartphone Exports, Samsung Drops to Second
For the first time, Apple surpassed Samsung in smartphone export from India. The company shipped 49% of the country’s total 12 million shipments in the second quarter. Samsung, on the other hand, secured 45% of India’s total smartphone shipments in the same period.
Apple clocked a rapid growth in export volumes in the last year by making iPhones through contract manufacturers in India. The Cupertino-based company’s share of exports soared from just 9% of the roughly 8 million smartphones shipped in Q2 2022, to almost half the total smartphone exports in Q2 2023.
Samsung’s share of export volumes fell from 50% in Q1 2023 to 45% in Q2 2023. This marks a sharp decline from Q2 2022 when the company had a dominating 84% of the export market from India. Meanwhile, exports by other Android brands (Xiaomi, Motorola, Vivo) declined from 10% in Q1 2023, to 6% in Q2 2023.
