Exynos is not rebranding but Dream Chip indeed exists, Samsung states
Recently, it was rumored that Samsung is going to rebrand Exynos as Dream Chip. In a recent development, it has been reported that Samsung Semiconductor disclosed Exynos is not rebranding to Dream Chip anytime soon.
In addition, the company’s semiconductor decision revealed that Dream Chip is an internal project name. Earlier, Samsung formed a Dream Team to research a chipset tailor-made for flagship Galaxy devices.

“All rumors regarding rebranding are not true,” Samsung Semiconductor told us in response to AndroidAuthority’s follow-up question.
