Undoubtedly, Samsung is the top brand in the Android / smartphone market, so it’s no surprise they keep on improving on their products. This time, Samsung is planning to develop its own Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) that’ll be integrated on the Exynos chipsets. For this purpose, Samsung has listed graphics engineer job positions on its LinkedIn.

This comes on the back of the rapid success of the Exynos Chipsets. The Exynos chipsets are so incredible that AnTuTu benchmarks even rated the most recent Exynos 9810 chipset over the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in terms of speed of performance.

From a different point of view, this can also be a bid to match Apple’s development of their in-house GPU. Well, Apple also dumped PowerVR’s supply chain of GPU which it implemented in its bionic processors. Whatsoever Samsung’s intentions are, the success of this innovation means more profits to the account for the brand.
