Samsung US AI chip

Biden’s govt is awarding Samsung a $6.4 billion subsidy under the US CHIPS Act. As the company gets huge subsidies, it will ramp up its semiconductor production. Samsung will establish an advanced semiconductor fab in Texas, USA, with operations set to commence in 2026.

According to reports, Samsung aims to begin production of second-generation 3nm chips later this year and 2nm next year. In particular, Samsung’s Texas chip fab is scheduled to operate in 2026, and a second one will be completed in 2027 that could focus on 2nm products.

Yesterday, Samsung disclosed its additional semiconductor investment plans in the US. The company has reportedly planned to build state-of-the-art foundries for 2nm process production and advanced packaging facilities to preempt the AI semiconductor market.

Earlier, it was revealed that the US govt pushed Samsung to increase investment in the US by facilitating huge subsidies. As a result, the South Korean tech giant plans to dramatically increase its investment in the country from $17 billion to over $40 billion.

This expansion includes constructing additional foundries and advanced packaging and R&D facilities in Taylor, Texas, alongside the existing foundry in Austin, Texas, which is also slated for expansion and might employ advanced processes.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy

Samsung may not expand Exynos chipset to its foldable phones this year. Authentic input indicates that Samsung has decided to go all Snapdragon for the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6. There were rumors of Exynos chip’s arrival on the Z Flip 6.

TheElec reports that Samsung partners are sure that the upcoming Z Flip 6 & Z Fold 6 will use Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy processor. Nevertheless, the company will continue to utilize its flagship Exynos chipset on its Galaxy S series smartphones over the years.

The reason behind sticking with Snapdragon is the previous strategy. The Korean tech giant only employed Snapdragon in its foldable segment so far. It’s a good decision as foldable phones are relatively more expensive than regular bar-like phones and must have top-notch specs.

This year’s Exynos has shown significant progress over its predecessors. There is no controversy created on the performance and efficiency of the Exynos 2400 used in the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus. Meanwhile, foldables should continue to feature Snapdragon SoCs.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy will power the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Fold 6, internationally. It’s the first Mobile Platform that implemented on-device AI capabilities. Performance and power efficiency are also up to the mark, gaining consumer satisfaction.

Samsung may be concerned about the decline in sales due to the utilization of Exynos in such premium handsets. Industry watchers look at it as a strategic judgment of the MX Business Division, considering factors such as the relationship with Qualcomm and cost savings.
