Why we use Smartphone Processor?

"why we use smartphone processor

Why we use a smartphone processor because the smartphone processer is the only one who can manage all the phone activity process that’s why we are also called the brain of the machine or CPU.

The processor, also known as the CPU, provides the instructions and processing power the computer needs to do its work. The more powerful and updated your processor, the faster your computer can complete its tasks.

By getting a more powerful processor, you can help your computer think and work faster. This alone may be enough to optimize the power of the RAM you already have and help you maximize your investment in any new RAM you do add. If more RAM is like a bigger workbench, then a faster processor is similar to inviting a friend over to help you with your work.

There are currently four companies develop smartphone process:


Qualcomm is an American multinational corporation headquartered in San Diego, California, and incorporated in Delaware. It creates semiconductors, software, and services related to wireless technology. It owns patents critical to the 5G, 4G, CDMA2000, TD-SCDMA, and WCDMA mobile communications standards.

That’s how often people around the world touch something made better by Qualcomm. It could be the smartphone in your pocket, the tablet on your coffee table, that wireless modem in your briefcase… it could even be that navigation system in your car or that action camera strapped to your chest.

Who is Qualcomm, and what do we do? We are engineers, scientists, and business strategists. We are from many different countries and speak many different languages. We come from diverse cultures and have unique perspectives. Together, we focus on a single goal—we invent breakthrough technologies that transform how the world connects, computes, and communicates.

Media Tek:

MediaTek Inc. is a Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company that provides chips for wireless communications, high-definition television, handheld mobile devices like smartphones and tablet computers, navigation systems, consumer multimedia products, and digital subscriber line services as well as optical disc drives.

We lead the market in chipset technology for Smart TVs, Voice Assistant Devices (VAD), Android tablets, feature phones, Optical and Blu-ray DVD players, and we’re number two globally in mobile phones.

You may not know it, but our chips and technology are already likely part of your everyday life. You will find us in 20 percent of homes globally and nearly 1 of every 3 mobile phones is powered by MediaTek.


Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino, California, that designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics, computer software, and online services.

With the original iPhone. Apple provided no information regarding the processor or any components and simply stating that the iPhone is a “closed platform.”

Later when the Original iPhone was disassembled it was learned that the primary processor is an Apple-branded Samsung ARM 11 processor. Although there was some later speculation that the primary processor might have been provided by Marvell instead of Samsung. iPhone 3G also used basically the same processor as the original iPhone.

The iPhone 3GS used a 600 MHz Samsung ARM Cortex A8 processor.

With the iPhone 4, Apple introduced the A4 Chip. This was the first A-Series processor designed by Apple yet manufactured by Samsung.

For the iPhone 4S models, they use a “dual-core” Apple A5 processor

For the iPhone 5 and 5c models, they use a “blazing fast A6 chip”

For the iPhone 5s models, they use an all-new 64-bit “A7 chip”.

For the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, they used “Apple-designed A8 chip with second-generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture for blazing fast performance and power efficiency”. Manufactured by TSMC.

For the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models, they use “Apple’s third-generation 64-bit” A9 processor that is “70 percent faster” than the A8 processor before it. Some were TSMC-produced while some others were Samsung-produced.

For the iPhone SE models, they use “Apple’s third-generation 64-bit” A9 processor that is “70 percent faster” than the A8 processor before it. Manufactured by TSMC.

For the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models, they use an A10 Fusion chip. They have “four cores, seamlessly integrating two high-performance cores that run up to two times faster than iPhone 6, and two high-efficiency cores that are capable of running at just one-fifth the power of the high-performance cores.” Manufactured by TSMC.

For the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X models, they use the A11 Bionic processor. A “six-core CPU design with two performance cores that are 25 percent faster and four efficiency cores that are 70 percent faster” than the A10 Fusion chip before it. Manufactured by TSMC.

Finally, for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR models, they use “the first 7-nanometer chip in a smartphone — the A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine.” Manufactured by TSMC.

Samsung Group:

The Samsung Group is a South Korean multinational conglomerate headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul. It comprises numerous affiliated businesses, most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean chaebol. Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-Chul in 1938 as a trading company.

Samsung uses the Exynos process which is developed in the Samsung group. Exynos, formerly Hummingbird (Korean: 엑시노스), is a series of ARM-based system-on-chips developed by Samsung Electronics’ System LSI division and manufactured by Samsung Electronics’ Foundry division. It is a continuation of Samsung’s earlier S3C, S5L, and S5P line of SoCs.

Exynos is distinct from the competing Qualcomm SoCs, but shares similarities to other SoCs offered by MediaTek and HiSilicon (Huawei), particularly noting its identical CPU and GPU configuration for most of the recent models.
