Samsung plans to start offering its own Exynos chipsets to other smartphone manufacturers. With this, the company has shown its desire to have a larger share of the chipset market, where it is currently ranked fourth after Qualcomm, Apple and MediaTek.

According to sources in the sector, Samsung plans to sell chips primarily for mid-range devices, and will compete mainly with MediaTek. The chipset market is currently dominated by Qualcomm and MediaTek, as the two companies powered almost all Android devices.

Among them is Apple, but its chips are only used in its own devices, like the Huawei chipsets. Samsung’s expansion plans coincide with the upcoming launch of the first 5G networks expected in 2020. This will allow the Korean company to take market share both through other companies’ devices and them own devices.

The only manufacturer to use Exynos chips besides Samsung is the Chinese company Meizu. Samsung plans, however, are for a much more aggressive strategy in 2018, which raises several issues.

First of all how the industry will respond, but it is also interesting which companies will order Exynos for their new devices. Sure Apple and Huawei will not be among them, but virtually everyone else on the market is potential customers because they do not produce their own chips.
