In July, Samsung Electronics launched the Joint Task Force (TF) for the system semiconductor and smartphone divisions with approximately 1,000 employees. Samsung aims to introduce the first Galaxy-only chip in the Galaxy S25 series by 2025.
The “Galaxy Silicon” must then bypass the “Apple Silicon” chip developed by Apple itself. Although Samsung Electronics is the world leader in memory semiconductors, its competitiveness with processors is limited. The project aims to restore global leadership by securing semiconductor design capabilities and memory semiconductor production technology.
Internally, Samsung’s goal is to “make the chip of their dreams.” The official launch is scheduled for July. The Task Force is led by Business Unit Manager Mobile Experience (MX) Roh Tae-moon and Business Unit Manager System LSI (President) Park Yong-in. Many employees who previously worked in Exynos and the LSI Division will join the Task Force. By the end of the day, the task force will have more than 1,000 people.
Samsung Galaxy S23, S24: Switch to Snapdragon Chips Completely by Planning
For the first time in the upcoming Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S24 series, Samsung plans to do without the Exynos chip. Instead, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 or its successor will be used. This is because Exynos is said to have internally decided not to develop further. Criticism of the SoC has been huge in recent years, so Samsung has now pulled the rip record.
Only one Samsung chip will be available in the possible Samsung Galaxy S25 series again in 2025. It was formerly known as “Galaxy Silicon”. Finally we need to see what it is called.
