On March 3, 2021, Samsung announced that it gained a breakthrough in 5G data speeds using E-UTRAN New Radio Dual Connectivity (EN-DC) technology. The EN-DC technology enables mobile operators to boost 5G speeds and coverage by leveraging a 4G network.

In contrast, the company successfully combined 40MHz of 4G frequency and 800MHz of 5G frequency of mmWave, in a demonstration carried out in Samsung’s lab in Korea and achieved 5.23Gbps in data speeds to a single device. The successful demonstration presents a blueprint for bringing a rapid, stable, and effective path to the 5G service.

In the demonstration, Samsung used its commercial end-to-end solutions, including equipment and network products. These include Samsung Galaxy S20+ smartphones, 4G radio, 5G radio (compact macro), and 4G/5G universal core.

The EN-DC technology allows operators to combine 4G and 5G to maximize the benefits of both networks to deliver enhanced coverage, speeds, and reliability. Besides, it leveraged carrier aggregation which combines multiple channels of the spectrum to gain greater efficiencies and boost data speeds over a wireless network.

“This reinforces our commitment to delivering the best possible 5G solutions to our customers and our ongoing support to help mobile operators accelerate the benefits of 5G services to their users,” said Ji-Yun Seol, Vice President, and Head of Air Technology Group, Networks Business at Samsung.

This achievement is based on Samsung’s years of research on 5G and the company’s firm commitment to enhancing the network experience of each user. Beginning in 2018, Samsung has begun to demonstrate the capabilities of 5G, which is the first gigabit 5G New Radio (NR) data connection (link) with a speed exceeding 1.7Gbps.

In 2019, Samsung broke its record, reaching a data speed of 2.65Gbps, and subsequently reached a speed of 4.3Gbps  in a demonstration in 2020. Today, Samsung has reached a data speed of 5.23Gbps, using a flexible new method in EN-DC technology to overcome another obstacle.

Ed Gubbins, Principal Analyst at GlobalData said – “Mobile operators need to make the most of their finite spectrum assets in order to ensure user experiences that deliver the full value of 5G. “This achievement showcases Samsung’s distinguishing ability to leverage an end-to-end portfolio and broad expertise that spans core, RAN and devices to help operators maximize the return on their 5G investments.”

Samsung June 2024 week I update

Samsung might soon launch Galaxy S24 Ultra in a new Titanium Yellow color in India. The company has recently teased the forthcoming colorway of its latest flagship through a cryptic post. A related report claims that a Yellow variant of the S24 Ultra is coming.

The company hasn’t revealed such details in its Instagram post. The post, in particular, has an image showing a girl holding a Sunflower in her hands. Additionally, the Instagram post caption “All set to welcome a fresh new look for something (already) epic.”

Since the flower is only highlighted in that color pop image, it aligns with the Yellow color arrival. TheTechOutlook claims that Samsung may launch the Titanium Yellow colorway of the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Besides, its sale in the offline channels will likely start on June 21.

Samsung may ditch AMD Xclipse, in-house Galaxy GPU likely in future

Samsung Developers gaming

Samsung Galaxy may end up canceling the AMD partnership for Exynos GPU. Following reports of Snapdragon exclusivity in Galaxy S25, another input suggests Samsung considering investing in GPU. A flagship chip for Galaxy with an in-house GPU is expected to debut in 2026.

According to Bloter, a Samsung executive of the management committee within the board of directors has decided to invest in GPU. It’s a move likely to strengthen Samsung’s “GPU-related business competitiveness or to expand its internal information technology (IT) infrastructure.”

With the Exynos 2200, Samsung debuted the Xclipse GPU made in partnership with AMD. There was no Exynos 2300, while the second-gen Xclipse GPU has been integrated with Exynos 2400. The partnership may continue with AMD for another SoC, i.e. Exynos 2500.

In the recent past, a trusted insider also claimed that the Samsung-AMD partnership may be discontinued for Galaxy GPU after 2025. The South Korean tech giant may introduce a powerful processor featuring its in-house graphics processing unit in 2026.

This is the first time that Samsung Electronics has decided to invest in GPUs at the management committee since 2012. Meanwhile, there is an interpretation that Samsung Electronics decided not to develop and manufacture GPUs, but to utilize them internally.

Ming-Chi Kuo revealed that Qualcomm will be the sole supplier of the Galaxy S25 series. Snapdragon’s share in the Galaxy S24 series is just 40%, which will jump to 100% next year. Samsung is unlikely to ship Exynos 2500 due to 3nm yield and power efficiency concerns.

TSMC ahead in 3nm process, Samsung struggles for next Snapdragon, Tensor

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy

TSMC managed to secure its lead in the latest 3nm foundry process. It would further widen the gap with rivals such as Samsung and SMIC. Samsung failed to win orders for its most advanced 3nm foundry process due to yield and efficiency concerns.

Global semiconductor vendors could opt for the TSMC 3nm process this year. After Apple, Qualcomm, Nvidia, AMD, Intel, MediaTek, and Google will be joining the Taiwanese chip maker. Samsung missed orders from Qualcomm and Google for their next-gen chips.

Samsung’s contract manufacturing division’s prototypes have lagged behind TSMC. The company’s foundry yield and power efficiency concerns offered an early lead to TSMC in the 3nm race. Google and Qualcomm ultimately chose TSMC after careful consideration for their 2025 chips.

Samsung Foundry had been working hard to secure Qualcomm and Google orders for next-generation chip. The next generation Tensor processor will be manufactured by TSMC. Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is also being produced in Taiwan on a 3nm process node.

The Korean tech giant was the first to commence (in June 2022) mass production of the 3nm process using the GAAFET process. Despite entering its third year since introducing the 3nm process semiconductors, the OEM has struggled to secure customers.

The Exynos 2500, developed in-house and produced using Samsung Foundry’s 3nm process, has faced similar yield issues. The efficiency is still 10-20% lower compared to TSMC, suggesting a potential cancellation to be used in the Galaxy S25 series next year.
