Speaking at a media event today, April 9, as reported by Zawya, Shin said: "We have to use the best engines to make our products competitive, which is why we opted to use our own chips." It's still not sure if the chief is referring to the Galaxy S7 or the Galaxy Note 5 with his remark, or perhaps another handset altogether.
Long before the arrival of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, it had become clear Samsung would favor its own chipset, instead of a Snapdragon 810 on its latest flagship devices. As rumored, Samsung launched the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge with Exynos chipset.
This might not be applicable for the firm's future flagship devices. Yes, you heard it right!
At a media event, this Thursday, Samsung's own J.K. Shin said: "We have to use the best engines to make our products competitive, which is why we opted to use our own chips."
He further continued, "But we may very well end up using products from Qualcomm again in the next Galaxy phone."
It's not clear whether the head honcho over at Samsung is referring the Galaxy S7 or the Galaxy Note 5. The good news is that we end up seeing a Snapdragon chipset in the next-generation Galaxy S device.
In other news, both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 will be made available for purchase in India on Friday i.e. tomorrow. The Galaxy S6 is priced at Rs 49,900 for the 32GB variant, Rs 55,900 for the 64GB variant, and Rs 61,900 for the 128GB variant. In the meanwhile, the Galaxy S6 Edge is priced at Rs 58,900, Rs 64,900 and Rs 70,900 for 32GB, 64GB and 128GB respectively.
