After a successful partnership with Vivo in 2020, Samsung wants to supply its mobile platforms to other smartphone manufacturers, including Xiaomi and OPPO. This applies to low-cost chipsets for entry-level and mid-range devices, for which domestic demand has decreased.

According to the publication of the Korean edition of Business Korea, new smartphones with Exynos SoCs will be released in the first half of 2021. Xiaomi and OPPO are reportedly struggling to find enough chipsets to meet their expansion goals, so the companies decided to consider using Exynos chips as a possible option. Another reason is the competitive pricing of Samsung semiconductor products.

The Exynos line of chips was the backbone for the company’s mobile devices until the mid-2010s, but since then Samsung’s chipset division has looked to outside sources to market its products, citing low margins.

On November 12, Samsung is expected to unveil the Exynos 1080 chipset, which should be the hardware base for devices from Chinese manufacturers. It will use the Cortex A78 processor cores, the Mali G78 graphics accelerator and will be manufactured using the 5nm process technology. It is assumed that the first smartphone based on it will be the Vivo X60. According to other information, the Exynos 981 chipset is currently in development, which may well appear in Xiaomi and OPPO smartphones.
