Vice President of Samsung’s System LSI Division, Dr. Kang Inyup, announced that the company’s next high-end phones will include an AMD GPU. With the Galaxy S21s already announced, we are expected to see this only next year.

According to XDA Developers, Kang’s statement points to a roadmap where we would see the first Exynos chipset with an AMD Radeon GPU in 2022. Kang Inyup’s speech was given during the Samsung Exynos 2100 SoC promotion event.

The partnership between Samsung and AMD was announced in August 2019, with the promise that the future of the Exynos would feature AMD Radeon GPUs. Since then, however, none of the companies had made information about the deal public.

Although Samsung is trying to develop its own GPUs it seems that this initiative is going somewhat slower than expected And this would be the main reason why they contacted AMD.

The expectation is that there will be a technical exchange between the companies, with AMD engineers collaborating on the design of the mobile GPU. But this is all hearsay, as the companies did not disclose details of the deal.

We believe that with this partnership we will be able to leverage AMD’s competitiveness in the GPU market to improve the performance not only of our mobile SoCs but also in other applications said a Samsung spokesperson.

Samsung is expected to reveal detailed information about the Exynos with AMD GPUs sometime in 2021. With this, the future Galaxy S22 would be ready to carry a lot of power from next year.
