In April this year, a new report claims Google and Samsung are working on a new custom system-on-a-chip (SoC) more advanced than the 865, which is expected to be put into use next year, and will subsequently be carried on Google notebooks.

In early November, Samsung preempted Qualcomm and MediaTek to release a 5nm process integrated 5G mobile phone chip. As Samsung abandoned its own research architecture with its product roadmap back on track, it will first be equipped in Vivo flagship mobile phone series, next year may supply chips to OPPO, Xiaomi and other mobile phone manufacturers.

Mobile phone chip market is full of uncertainty. Qualcomm, as a chip giant, is challenged by old and new rivals.
