The Korean company is interested in establishing its position as the largest chipmaker in the entire world - with the help of many more Exynos processors, factories Memories New and more
After a very impressive quarterly report with a net profit of just over $ 14 billion (and completing a full year of net profit of over $ 50 billion), of which $ 10 billion comes from the various chip manufacturing businesses - it is not surprising to see a willingness of סמסונג To further increase the pace and scope of its investment in these prestigious and profitable areas, which also enable the company to maintain its competitiveness in many other markets, and this is what we are told by recent reports.
Exynos for all requires
So far, processing chips of סמסונג The Exynos brand was used exclusively for its personal products, as well as a number of individual models from its Meizu company, a long-standing collaboration with the flagship company of South Korea. Soon this situation may change drastically, if one believes a fresh report that the company has set itself the goal of increasing revenue and the volume of use of Exynos chips - by opening a front line Qualcomm And an active offering of products to other handset manufacturers in the market.
Samsung has already proven that its chips have everything it takes to compete in the top performance, when it also has highly efficient and reasonable products in the middle market that can wink at a plethora of vendors Smartphones Who are interested in an alternative toSnapdragon Or Helio - and although the graphics processing capabilities are not always impressive in chips Exynos For the intermediate market, the company's possible transition to self-developed cores will be able to upgrade the level of competitiveness.
Samsung will focus on offering intermediate chips to other manufacturers in the market, and we hope that this move will indeed materialize in the coming months - and will provide an expanded offering in the days when it seems that Mediatek is having a hard time keeping up with the pace it dictates. Qualcomm in the field.
Samsung announced the start of its mass production Memories The 256GB eUFS (Embedded Universal Flash Storage) is designed for in-vehicle information and entertainment systems. The growing importance of this field - for it and for every other chip and hardware manufacturer in the market in fact.
Two-thirds of Samsung's annual infrastructure budget is now directed to the world of memory and processing chips, and it seems that this share will continue to grow gradually, as the investment in the production line forms part of an even larger investment of almost $ 28 billion, announced by the company in the next four years on the NAND AndDDR.
The potential of the automotive world is clear to everyone, and as the efforts to create autonomous systems and the development of more advanced information and control systems become the default in all models and at all levels, the prevailing assessment is that this field will offer the highest growth figures for the next decade, Many announcements, launches and products that can make your future vehicle feel almost like Galaxy or iPhone New.
12.4 billion to expand the flagship plant
Another interesting report is that Samsung plans to invest a huge amount of over $ 12 billion starting this year to open a new production line at the large chip plant located in Pyeongtaek - in order to significantly increase the production capabilities of dynamic memory chips (DRAM) and meet the growing demand. Constantly.
It remains to be hoped that this growth will lead to an improvement in supply, competitiveness and prices to consumers in the market, and not to the opposite situation סמסונג Will increase its clear control and will be able to establish facts on the ground as it sees fit.
Expect many more snippets of information similar to those in previous paragraphs during 2018, which is emerging as a year of development and additional massive growth for סמסונג. Good luck!
