Samsung teams up with MediaTek
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.
