In addition to the image sensor business, Samsung has recently begun to play a "small abacus" on its SoC, and has taken on the "small nine-nine". At the summit where Qualcomm first launched the Snapdragon 888, Samsung did not appear on the promotion page, which caused a lot of speculation.

Before 2015, Exynos adopted the ARM public version architecture, and the SoC performance of Exynos gradually approached Qualcomm Snapdragon. Exynos's strategy is radical and advanced. It preceded Qualcomm with eight cores and A57 architecture. Even in 2015, the Exynos 7420 completely surpassed the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, and could even beat the Apple A8.
At that time, due to patent issues, Samsung's Exynos processor did not support CDMA networks (China Telecom) and could not be used for all Netcom. Coupled with the fact that all domestic manufacturers are Qualcomm, even if it is as strong as 7420, it is only selected by Meizu. Qualcomm wins in the market, while Samsung's Exynos wins in performance.

In addition to the Snapdragon 888, it is expected that the Exynos flagship chip of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series will be 2100, which is also Samsung's first flagship chip after abandoning the "Mongoose" architecture. Judging from the recently leaked running scores, Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 scores are close, not much different, and the light of Android has returned.
