Since Vivo is already receiving both Exynos 980 and Exynos 880 chipsets from Samsung, it would not be surprising to see Xiaomi and Oppo joining them in the coming months. However, it seems that these two companies will only get budget chipsets from the tech giant headquartered in South Korea.

Next year will be very interesting for the Chinese underdogs as the Xiaomi - Oppo - Vivo trio could start using chipsets made by Samsung in 2021. Right now, Samsung is already supplying Exynos 980 and Exynos 880 processors to Vivo, and the other two smartphone makers could join in as soon as early 2021.

The information comes via a report that has not been confirmed (nor denied) by Samsung so far. According to the same source, Xiaomi and Oppo will only get Exynos chips for their budget lineups — at least in the first stages of the collaboration.

However, everything gets even more interesting when the report suggests that Samsung has already started to cut down the supply of Exynos chipsets to its own wireless business division. This most likely means that Samsung's profit in the budget sector of the smartphone market is pretty low and the company has decided to just sell low-end chipsets to third parties.

Until Samsung steps forward with some official statements, the comments section is all yours, so feel free to share your thoughts about the business strategy described above. Do you think it would be a smart move for Samsung and benefical for the other three parties involved, or not?

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
