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.
Samsung is moving forward to finish Android 13 update rollout by 2022
Apple is the biggest rival of Samsung in the global smartphone market. Since the South Korean tech giant owns the crown of the global market leader, Apple still defeats Samsung when it comes to software update deployment for mobile products.
Back in June, Apple started Beta testing and released the Stable iOS 16 update for iPhone 8 and later on September 12, 2022. If we talk about Android, Google rolled out the final version of Android 13 to all compatible Pixel phones on August 15.
On the flip side, Samsung follows a staged update distribution method to deliver new software updates to Galaxy devices. There are millions of Galaxy devices (phones and tablets) globally, while Apple and Google phones are comparatively fewer.
Still, Samsung is doing better
The above part of this story was brief info about Samsung’s rivals in terms of software update distribution. Well, in 2022, Samsung managed to greatly reduce the Android OS release delay for Galaxy devices and the rollout for flagships somewhat matches Google and Apple.
On October 24, Samsung upgraded the Galaxy S22 series with Android 13, followed by Galaxy S21, S20, and Note 20 series on November 7. Since then, the company is rapidly spreading the new One UI 5.0 software among more and more eligible Galaxy models including FE, A, M, Tab, XCover and F lineups.
Samsung’s running ahead of roadmap
For consumers in Germany, Samsung promised to bring Andorid 13 update for Galaxy flagships in November 2022, which they did. However, the company is running quite ahead of its schedule as models planned to upgrade in January are already receiving the One UI 5 update.
At present, just a handful of Galaxy phones and tablets remain for the Stable Android 13 update, while other eligible models have started getting it, worldwide. Since the availability varies by market and carrier, it would not take more than a month for the wide rollout.
Over the past two days, the entry-level Galaxy A13 and Galaxy M13 smartphones have received a major firmware update, showing how Samsung greatly managed to deploy the Android 13. Seeing this, we can assume that the remaining Galaxies may also receive the One UI 5 update by this month.
Here’s how Samsung’s SmartThings wireless charging station looks!
For a long time, we have been hearing about Samsung’s upcoming wireless charging hub. Now the first pictures of this Samsung SmartThings wireless charging station along with some specifications have surfaced through FCC.
In the picture, the SmartThings charging pad is strapped to the test bench. The design details are a bit difficult to see in the FCC image due to the overlay of the geometry for radiation patterns. However, we can see that the new SmartThings station has a rectangular shape with rounded corners.
It looks like both the front and the back is made of glossy black material. And, if you look carefully, you will see a tiny ridge in the middle of the device. It might be indicating that one part of the front is a bit higher than another one.
The FCC listing further reveals some of the specifications of the device. According to the listing, the upcoming Samsung SmartThings Wireless Charging Station features Zigbee, Bluetooth LE, and Wi-Fi support, as well as wireless power transfer.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth seem quite different as we don’t usually need them on a wireless charger. This thing might have some other unique features. Maybe, the device could also allow users to monitor the charging status or turn it on/off through their Galaxy devices using the SmartThings app.
We should wait and see what exactly Samsung wants to introduce with the new charging station. Well, the company is suggested to launch this device around the same time period as the Galaxy S23 series.
Intel CEO could soon meet Samsung Lee for further partnerships
Pat Gelsinger, CEO of Intel Corporation is reportedly starting his South Korea trip on Friday. This sudden trip indicates that Intel CEO is expected to meet Samsung Chairman Lee Jae-yong to discuss cooperation and further partnerships.
According to KoreaHerald sources, Pat Gelsinger could start his trip to South Korea this Friday. Most likely, he will be meeting with Samsung’s newly elected Chairman Lee for a discussion on strengthening partnerships. However, there’s no confirmed information regarding the detailed schedule and the list of people he will meet.
Apart from Samsung Boss, Intel CEO is likely to have meetings with other Korean businesses including SK Group Chairman Chey Tae-won, Hyundai Motor Group Executive Chairman Chung Euisun and LG Group Chairman Koo Gwang-mo.
Since Samsung and Intel are tough competitors in the global chipset market, they are also essential partners for elements and technology. Intel is the world’s leader which makes central processing units, while Samsung creates cutting-edge memory chip, which is also an integral part of CPU.
