Samsung 3nm Chips

Ending its multi-foundry strategy, Qualcomm is giving all the Snapdragon orders to Taiwanese TSMC since the second half of last year. Meanwhile, Qualcomm CMO hinted that Samsung foundry may join the collaboration again and start producing future Snapdragon chipsets.

According to the information (via TheElec), Qualcomm implied the possibility of collaborating with Samsung foundry again in the post-3nm process for Snapdragon chips. Next-gen Snapdragon chips (using 2nm/GAA process) may be produced by a dual system by Samsung and TSMC.

It’s reported that Qualcomm ended up using Samsung foundry due to the low yield of 4nm process and the former plans to entrust all AP production using the 3nm process to TSMC. Regarding the ‘3nm and 2nm foundry utilization plan’, Qualcomm CMO said, “We are continuing to maintain a cooperative relationship with Samsung Foundry.”

When asked if Qualcomm would maintain the multi-foundry strategy, Maguire CMO replied “yes”. “Qualcomm is too large to go with a single foundry,” he said. “The multi-foundry strategy is much easier in terms of supply, but it is also advantageous in terms of price competitiveness and scale.” “In particular, a multi-foundry strategy is more appropriate for expanding into business areas other than smartphones,” he added.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

Qualcomm officially unveiled the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset at the Qualcomm Summit in Hawaii. Compared to the 8 Gen 1, the new flagship chip’s AI performance is increased up to 4.35 times and offers 25% faster performance and 40% improved power efficiency.

We are assuming that the Self Repair Assistant app may provide users with repair guides and part information on different Galaxy devices including phones, tablets, watches, and earbuds. Notably, the company partnered with iFixit earlier this year to provide an online repair resource site with OEM parts and repair guides.

Back in March, Kyle Wiens, CEO of iFixit reportedly stated that his company is working to improve Samsung’s repair guide and DIY parts offerings. Accordingly, it looks like Samsung and iFixit are now shaking hands to introduce an app offering all that stuff to Galaxy consumers.
