In early April TM Roh, president of samsung-smart-monitor-m8-analisis-lo-que-lo-hace-diferente-es-tan-bueno-que-nos-invita-a-perdonarle-sus-carencias/">Samsung Electronics, confirmed the company’s willingness to develop proprietary chips dedicated to galaxy smartphones. A generic declaration of intent, not accompanied by more detailed details on the project.
A recent speech by an often trusted source, the Ice Universe leaker, adds more details and helps clarify why the Samsung executive was so vague: the plan is there, but it will take time to implement and for the first concrete results.
The exclusive processor dedicated to Galaxy smartphones will come not before 2025 and the first devices to use it will probably be the models of the future Galaxy S25 line.

Samsung, which in the meantime is losing ground in the smartphone processor market, seems for now willing to follow the moves of Google, which with the Pixel 6 range has introduced its exclusive Tensor processor, and Apple, which has always reserved the Ax chips exclusively for its own. products. The concept of exclusivity it can be translated into a purchase incentive since it allows you to differentiate yourself from the competition – provided that formal exclusivity is associated with substantial advantages for the consumer.
