Samsung LSI, the chipset arm of the tech multinational firm, had been seeking new customers because supplying to only Samsung’s smartphone unit was not yielding enough profit. Likely, adding Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi will turn this around.
In addition, Oppo and Xiaomi are also seeking new suppliers because Huawei’s chipset business is falling. However, the companies concerned in this news have not confirmed these reports.
This development will place Samsung in direct part with Qualcomm, which is the number one Android chipset provider. Since the Exynos chipsets are to be shipped first in budget smartphones, it will create a healthy competition. It will also favour customers looking to spend less on buying good smartphones.
