In our modern age, where 5G phones are starting to emerge, a good chipset goes a long way. Now there are several chipsets which can be competitors to Qualcomm’s high-end solution to one degree or another, especially Samsung’s SoC Exynos and Huawei’s Kirin.
For instance, Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G Android smartphone features Exynos 990 chipset, and Huawei and Honor products are mainly based on its own Kirin 990. More ever, as the test showed earlier, Samsung Exynos990 performed badly with noticeable throttling and intermittent drops during the game.
Before Samsung officially launched Galaxy S20, there was rumors that Samsung would give up Exynos990 in its new-coming flagships, but it didn’t work out in the end. But after Exynos990 was proved to be very mediocre, Samsung is again considering finding its own solution.
Sources says, for a variety of reasons, Samsung could not completely switch to Qualcomm’s Soc, but what is the best solution? How about Using a third-party chipset: from MediaTek or Huawei. And it seems choosing Huawei can take less time for Samsung.
Samsung is in talks with Huawei to use the Kirin 1020 chip in the Galaxy S21, sources said. It looks likely that Samsung could be able to replace its failed Exynos with a more complex Kirin Soc chipset.
