Samsung teams up with MediaTek

MediaTek joins Samsung's list of suppliers
MediaTek chip
While the deal is not concluded yet, recent reports claim Samsung may soon use multiple MediaTek chips for their devices, including both Android- and Tizen-powered wearables.

After multiple rumors, Samsung decided to drop Qualcomm and used their own chips to power their latest high-end devices. Early reviews show the decision was inspired, as the Exynos-powered Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge offers excellent autonomy and increased performance.

New information published by Taiwanese media leads to a few interesting conclusions, as the mobile phone maker may leave all Qualcomm chips behind pretty soon. MediaTek never commented on rumors concerning a collaboration between them and Samsung, but that has just changed. The chipmaker's Deputy General Manager Zhu Shan-gzu somehow confirmed this for the first time, saying "We made progress little by little in some direction."

While early rumors claimed Samsung aims to use MediaTek chips in Tizen-driven devices, their latest chips offer excellent value for both the mid-range and high-end segments. Considering this, it seems natural to see the X- and P-series processors powering Samsung handsets quite soon. Unfortunately, that kind of information is still off limits for now. We will definitely get back to this as the Samsung-MediaTek collaboration gets officially announced.
