It’s old news that Samsung is set to use its latest Exynos processor for the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+ smartphones. While recently reports claimed that Samsung wants to sell its processor to other smartphone manufacturers, interestingly, a rumors have claimed that the company will launch a new chip called Exynos Auto for cars. While you might think that the upcoming chip will be used for Samsung’s self-driving car platform, the upcoming chip will power infotainment system and digital dashboard.
This latest news comes after earlier last year, Samsung completed a deal supply Audi with Exynos processors from this year. At the time, it was revealed that Exynos Auto is designed to bring significant computing power to provide in-car solutions like infotainment, head-up-display as well as digital dashboard.
At the moment, the company is set to complete the first mass production of the Exynos Auto chips later this year. While Audi has relied on Qualcomm for a long time for the chips, back in 2015, Samsung started supplying 20-nanometer LPDDR4 DRAM and 10-nanometer class eMMC 5.1 card to the automobile manufacturer.
