Samsung and HiSilicon to start selling chips to other smartphone manufacturers
Samsung's Exynos and HiSilicon's Kirin have proven that they can stand on their own feet in today's tech market, both now having 64-bit models with up to 8 cores and LTE support on the way. So far, each SoC has been somewhat exclusive to its parent company's product line (Exynos goes in Samsung's line and Kirin fuels Huawei's high-end devices), however both manufacturers have said they plan to sell to other smartphone ODMs.

This is expected to be a welcome offering, since at the current time, most vendors are forced to purchase 90% of smartphone solutions from Qualcomm and MediaTek. Both product differentiation and some more competition in the SoC scene will make for better products and more diversity between manufacturers.

Exynos has already gotten the ball rolling, fuelling devices such as Meizu's MX flagship series, ORIGEN 4 Dual and Quad variants, the Lenovo K860 , Lenovo P700i, Hyndai T7 Tablet and other inhabitants of the asian markets.
