    However, the exynos has only been seen in samsung's high-end smartphone. Tech analysts have predicted that the market for high-end devices is likely to go down this year, as the demand for entry-level and mid-range devices are ever so increasing. Price competition seems to be the name of the game, as low-end smartphones are increasingly becoming more spec-potent and less expensive.

    Manufacturing corporations such as Huawei, ZTE, Lenovo, Sony Mobile and LG are rising in this category. Samsung Electronics in order too gain a competitive edge in the entry-level and mid-range smartphone segment, have approached Qualcomm, Broadcom and ST-Ericsson for cheaper, high performance chipsets.

    Samsung has adopted ST-Ericsson's NovaThor platform for quite a few of theirs models, including the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy Beam and Galaxy Ace 2. Also, Galaxy S II Plus and Galaxy Y Duo, features Broadcom's processors, while its Galaxy S Duo and Galaxy mini 2 uses Qualcomm's platforms. The company looks to continue down this road to optimize chipset solutions for there low-end devices.

    In a market, where the demand for more in less is on a constant rise, Samsung's decision to partner with 3rd party chipset manufacturers, might just shoot them to the top.
