Qualcomm CEO said the chip shortage will ease next year

In the context of global chip shortages, Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon said that the shortage is gradually alleviating and the situation is expected to improve next year.

As per The Elec website, Amon said that this year’s supply has improved compared to 2020, and it is expected that the situation will improve further in 2022, especially when compared to 2020. According to the report, many smartphone manufacturers are unable to purchase enough processors from Qualcomm, which has affected their production.



Samsung is no exception. Its head of mobile business TM Roh and head of procurement visited the United States in the middle of the year to meet with chip companies to ensure more supply.

At the same time, Qualcomm launched a new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor for smartphones.


The chip is manufactured by Samsung’s foundry using a 4-nanometer node.

New chipsets equipped with cutting-edge 5G, artificial intelligence, gaming, cameras, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies will be adopted by global OEMs and brands, and are expected to be commercially available by the end of 2021.
