1/6 In the race for artificial intelligence supremacy among flagship smartphones, Apple appears to be gearing up to outshine its rivals, particularly the Samsung Galaxy S24 and Google Pixel 8 series. Reports from Taiwanese site Economic Daily News, suggest that the upcoming iPhone 16 line will be equipped with an A18 chipset boasting a Neural Engine with significantly more cores than its predecessor, the A17 Pro used in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Increasing the number of cores in the Neural Engine aligns with Apple's strategy to enhance its AI capabilities significantly. While the exact core count for the A18's Neural Engine remains undisclosed, the A17 Pro featured 16 cores, implying a noteworthy advancement in AI processing for the iPhone 16 series, Techradar reported.  (AP)

4/6 Nevertheless, it's crucial to recognize that core count alone does not determine performance, as demonstrated by the A17 Pro's Neural Engine outperforming the A16 Bionic despite having the same core count. While this leak should be taken with caution, expectations are high for the A18 to deliver significantly improved AI capabilities. (HT Tech)

5/6 There's speculation about whether all iPhone 16 models will feature the A18 chipset. Apple has traditionally reserved its latest chipsets for the Pro models. Furthermore, rumors suggest that certain advanced AI features may be exclusive to the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, potentially leaving the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus with a less powerful chipset.

Regardless, it appears increasingly likely that this year's Pro models will equip Apple with the hardware needed to rival Samsung and Google in the realm of AI, though the software and additional features remain uncertain.

After the success of the Galaxy S24 series, Samsung is already said to be developing a new generation of the S-series smartphone, the Galaxy S25. While the official launch is months away, tipsters have managed to gather information about the upcoming Galaxy S25. In a new report, it is speculated that the Galaxy S25 will be powered by Google's next-generation AI model, Gemini Nano 2, courtesy of which it may support on-device AI features.

According to a Daum Herald Economy report, Cho Cheol-min, Executive Director of System LSI Business Department at Samsung Electronics revealed at the Artificial Intelligence Semiconductor Forum that the Galaxy S25 series would be using Google Nano version 2. It was also reported that Samsung will gradually double the Exynos on-device AI software development workforce in the coming years to aid in its AI quest.

Cheol-min said, “We have begun discussions on how to implement version 2 of Google's ‘Gemini Nano', which will be released in the future, in on-device AI.”


However, the discussions for upcoming AI features to the Galaxy S25 series are yet to be finalised. The collaboration between Google and Samsung will expand with further integration of Gemini Nano to the Exynos processors for supporting on-device AI and generative AI features. Currently, Samsung is reported to be considering if the integration would be possible or not and how they can supercharge their AI game with the Galaxy S25.

It is expected that Google will reveal its second generation of AI model for smartphones near the launch of Pixel 9. Therefore, we will have to wait and see what's coming.

We previously reported that the Samsung Galaxy S25 will support two powerful processors, the Exynos 2500 processor with Google's Tensor Processing Unit (TPU). Therefore, the new rumour aligns with the collaboration efforts to bring advanced AI features. Apart from the AI move, the company is also planning to expand its workforce for the development of on-device AI features. Samsung is speculated to bring double the number of employees to its integral divisions - Exynos AI Studio and Exynos AI Stack.
