Qualcomm abandoned Samsung manufacturing facilities due to failed Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, but may return to the Korean giant

Qualcomm is not going to abandon the idea of ​​cooperation with Samsung, despite the far from the most successful SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
As you know, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 was produced at the facilities of Samsung, but it was not the best in energy efficiency. Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 was transferred to the power of TSMC, and the updated platform has become much better. The newest Snapdragon 8 Gen2 also manufactured at TSMC’s 4 nm facility. But that doesn’t mean Samsung will never release Qualcomm platforms again.
The company said it maintains a collaborative relationship with Samsung, partly because Qualcomm itself is too big.

Qualcomm is too big to work with one partner. The multi-production strategy is much simpler in terms of supply, but it is also beneficial in terms of price competitiveness and scale. In particular, the multi-factory strategy is more suitable for expanding business into areas other than smartphones.

Of course, at the moment, all orders for Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 belong to TSMC, but Samsung is already preparing to launch production on the new second generation 3nm GAA process technology, which can reduce power consumption by 50% and increase performance by 30% relative to 5nm standards. It was previously reported that Qualcomm will consider samples of Samsung products manufactured using the new process technology to decide whether to use it for their own purposes.
