No doubt, Samsung is one of the largest chipset makers on the planet. Earlier this year, the company introduced its new flagship mobile processor – Exynos 2100, which is built on the latest 5nm EUV fabrication process. This SoC debuted with the Galaxy S21 series features more excellent performance and power efficiency than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888.
Aside from this, Xiaomi, a Chinese smartphone maker, recently announced its self-developed image processor called Surge C1. But, it looks like the company is in talks with the South Korean tech giant to develop a custom SoC. Besides, both of the OEMs had five meetings to date about developing a chipset based on Cortex-X2 cores. Though ARM is expected to introduce the Cortex-X2, which uses v9 architecture in the near future.
According to a new report, Xiaomi and Samsung are in discussions about creating a custom SoC. Apparently, the pair have had five meetings to date with a view to developing an SoC based on Cortex-X2 cores. ARM is yet to announce the Cortex-X2, although it is expected to do so within the next few months and using its v9 architecture.
It is said that Qualcomm could use the Cortex-X2 in its next flagship SoC (probably Snapdragon 888+) and as a competitor, it still remains a mystery for Samsung, what custom Xiaomi silicon would offer. Furthermore, the report suggests that Xiaomi wants to continue using ARM Mali GPUs over AMD and Samsung’s combined offerings too.
Lastly, it is important to mention that Xiaomi is not the first smartphone vendor that wants to use its self-developed chipset in its products instead of purchasing from chip makers. As reported previously, Google’s upcoming Pixel 6 phone could come with a custom SoC called “Whitechapel” while Apple uses M1 and Bionic chips in its Macs and iPhones.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 to resolve under-display camera quality problems
Samsung first introduced the under-display camera technology with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 last year and brought its second generation with the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Moving ahead, Samsung aims to finally resolve the quality issues of under-display camera phones by 2024, which could be the Galaxy Z Fold 6.
According to TheElec report, the Display subsidiary of The company aimed to apply a transparent PI substrate to its foldable phone by 2024. Samsung is reportedly considering to ditch the yellow PI substrate and replace it with transparent PI substrate to offer clear photos without quality reduction through under-display camera.
Going ahead with the report, it’s expected that the Korean tech giant will first introduce the new under-display camera panel featuring transparent PI substrate with the Galaxy Z Fold 6 (tentative name) followed by OLED panels for Apple iPhones.
As of now, the foldable OLED displays are being mass-produced using a yellow PI substrate, which will be replaced with a transparent polyimide (PI) substrate around 2024. Using the new tech, Samsung seeks to improve the light transmittance of the under-panel camera (UPC).
The under-panel camera is an element that is structurally located below the OLED display, at the same time, its aperture is only visible when the device uses the camera function. While the camera of the phone is in operation, UPC allows external light to pass through the flexible OLED.
If Samsung Display applies a transparent PI substrate instead of a yellow PI substrate as planned, the light transmittance in the UPC area will increase, making it possible to take clearer pictures than now. Pixels can also be arranged more densely than now, reducing the sense of heterogeneity within the periphery of the display.
