Surely, many have already heard about the global shortage of semiconductor products, which affects many areas, including the smartphone market. As it turned out, Samsung has already felt the consequences of the deficit.
According to sources, the shortage of semiconductors has hit one of the most popular series of the manufacturer – Galaxy A, whose devices offer good performance at an adequate price. Samsung has reportedly delayed the release of its Galaxy A52 5G and Galaxy A72 in key markets due to manufacturing issues caused by chip shortages.
So, difficulties arose with the supply of Snapdragon 720G and Snapdragon 750G processors, which are used in smartphones. Without a reliable supply of these chips, Samsung will not be able to produce a steady stream of these devices. This leads to shortages in important markets.
Snapdragon 720G and 750G are also used in Xiaomi, Realme, Vivo and Motorola gadgets, but it is not yet known if they are faced with a shortage. It is also unclear if this will affect other Samsung smartphone lines.
By the way, the company warned about the possible consequences of the deficit in a recent report for investors.
