Samsung recently launched their new Exynos 7420 processor in the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, the processor is made up of ARM Coretx A57 and Cortex A53 cores, although Samsung is now said to be working on its own APs for its next generation processor.
According to a recent report the company is in the process of developing its own custom cores to use its its new processors and these processors are expected to launch in 2016.
According to the semiconductor industry on March 17, Vice Chairman Lee recently ordered the company’s executive team “to strengthen technology capability in order to design not only mobile devices but also various semiconductors.”
So Samsung Electronics’ System LSI division has recently started its own custom core technology development project for mobile application processors (AP). The company expects that it will see results by Q1 next year at the latest.
So it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 could come with a completely new processor that doesnt use ARM cores and instead uses new Samsung designed cores.
