Samsung and Qualcomm are reportedly partnering on a new 10 nm FoPLP manufacturing process for use on both the next generation Snapdragon and Exynos SoCs.

Samsung and Qualcomm are competitors in the mobile processor market with their Exynos and Snapdragon series of SoCs, respectively. In terms of market share, however, the Exynos series does not appear on as wide of a range of smartphones as do the Snapdragon series in some markets.

A South Korean source is reporting that Samsung could be partnering with Qualcomm to jointly produce the next generation of Snapdragon and Exynos SoCs. This will purportedly be made possible by a new 10 nm FoPLP manufacturing process that will be used on both next generation SoCs from Samsung and Qualcomm. The thinner and smaller chips promise lower power consumption, lower heat output, and reduced production costs compared to the current Exynos 8890 and Snapdragon 820.

The rumored Exynos 8895 is anticipated to make its debut in next year's Galaxy S8. If current trends continue, the Galaxy S8 may be equipped with the Snapdragon 830 instead depending on the region, so having both SoCs manufactured under the supervision of Samsung would make sense from a logistics and quality control standpoint.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
