Samsung plans to supply ZTE and other OEMs with Exynos chipsets

Samsung plans to supply ZTE and other OEMs with Exynos chipsets

According to Reuters, Samsung is only in talks with ZTE at this moment for supply of its Exynos chipsets.

Inyup Kang, head of Samsung's logic chip developer System LSI, said that the company is in talks with all OEMs; offering them the opportunity to become a Samsung customer.

The semiconductor business is a driving force of Samsungs profits, but its Exynos mobile chipsets are rarely seen in other manufacturers devices, with the only external client being Meizu with the latest 15 Plus phone.

The search for new clients comes right after ZTE got banned from purchasing Qualcomm products for violating trade embargos and importing Snapdragon-powered devices in Iran and North Korea.

Now it looks like another Chinese company - the smartphone giant ZTE mobiles. Inyup Kang said that Samsung will continue to negotiate with ZTE regardless of the outcome of trade negotiations between the United States and China.

From 16 May 2018 (inclusive), the Companys shares are expected to trade on Oslo Børs under the new ticker “EQNR”. Statoil shareholders have approved the board of director's proposal to change the company's name to Equinor.

Reuters has reported that Samsung is in talks with a number of smartphone makers, including troubled Chinese manufacturer ZTE, to start supplying them with mobile processor chips from its Exynos brand. It said in January that it is providing automaker Audi with Exynos processor chips. Meizu has launched its flagship smartphones with Exynos processor in the past.

TSMC is the world's top contract chip manufacturer, followed by the likes of US -based Global Foundries, Taiwan-based UMC and Samsung.

Samsung's semiconductor business, reporting a 2017 operating profit of 35.2 trillion won ($33 billion), contributed more than 65 percent of the whole firm's record annual profit of 53.65 trillion won a year ago.

Kan also said that this year is expected to increase its business by 5-10 percent in dollar terms.
