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.
Qualcomm hints future Snapdragon chip will be made by Samsung, again!
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.
