As we know, Samsung has used the Exynos 850 chip (AP) for the Galaxy A13 LTE smartphone for the North American market. The Galaxy A13 comes in two versions – LTE as well as 5G which is powered by MediaTek ‘ Dimensity 700’ 5G version.
According to a market report of research firm Omdia, Samsung shipped 51.8 million units of the Galaxy A12 in 2021, making it the best-selling smartphone model in the world. The Galaxy A13 is the successor to the Galaxy A12.
The Galaxy A12 went down in history as the first smartphone model to surpass 50 million units in sales. Mediatek’s Helio P35 chip was used for Galaxy A12. This means that the Galaxy A12 has played a big role in the growth of media tech.
Going forward, this year Samsung is expected to produce the Galaxy A13 big hit. The company has released last month the Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A33 based on the Exynos 1280. It is a game-specific AP built on a 5-nanometer process. And the Exynos 1280 was loaded into the Galaxy M33, which was released in April, targeting India and Southeast Asia.
Samsung is increasing the ratio of Galaxy A and Galaxy M series in its smartphone business. The Galaxy F series will also be launched in 2020. The company is shifting its focus from developing countries to emerging markets. It is rapidly adopting Exynos chips for mid-range low-cost smartphones.
Samsung is building new global research unit for semiconductors
Taking a big step, Samsung Electronics is going to establish a new global research unit for semiconductors under the DS Business Division in December 2022, BusinessKorea reports.
According to the information, the new global semiconductors research unit will be headed by DS Business Division’s Vice President and expected to analyze the semiconductor market and other related industries.
At present, the South Korean tech giant has numerous research units that include Samsung Research for research on advanced technologies, as well as Samsung Securities Research Center, and Samsung Global Research.
Since the above-mentioned research organizations are responsible for different fields, the tentative Global Research unit dedicated to semiconductors will surely help Samsung with in-depth analyses of the industry.
Due to global supply chain disruptions during the COVID-19 crisis, the company felt the need for a dedicated semiconductor research organization, as result, it’s going to be established next month.
Big changes in Exynos’s strategy
The Galaxy S23 series is likely to globally feature Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s overclocked variant, while the flagship Exynos 2300 chipset reportedly making its commercial debut with a future Galaxy A or M series phone.

Samsung Galaxy S25 series’ Exynos processor may have nine CPU cores, four Cortex-X cores
Samsung Galaxy S23 is coming in early 2023 but some clever tipsters are already talking about the hardware of 2025’s Galaxy S25 series. A new information reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S25 Exynos chipset will feature nine CPU cores, four Cortex-X cores, and more advanced technologies.
Multiple reports, including Qualcomm, have informed that Samsung will exclusively use Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor in the upcoming Galaxy S23 series as the company is ditching Exynos due to its poor performance.
But the company is planning to make a comeback in 2025 with a new mobile processor from the ground up specifically for Galaxy devices. A fresh information claims that Samsung reportedly assembled a “Dream Team” for the effort.
The tipster says that the Samsung Galaxy S25 series’ Exynos chipset will use a tri-cluster, nine-core CPU in a 4-4-1 configuration with four Cortex-X cores, four Cortex-A7xx cores, and one Cortex-A5xx core.
It is likely that the singular Cortex-A5xx core will handle background tasks, such as powering the AoD. An entire Cortex-X core could reserve for One UI and GoS, whereas, the rest will be used for day-to-day tasks, gaming, and other functions.
Meanwhile, for GPU, we expect that the company will bring an RDNA 3 GPU with 8 CUs to make it faster than the iGPU on Ryzen 7000 processors. Aside from these, the future chipset also opts for a 2-6-1 design with two Cortex-X and six Cortex-A7xx cores.
