Samsung is gunning for the top position in almost every industry including the lucrative mobile AP market.

According to Business Korea, Samsung is now ranked fifth in the global mobile AP market behind Qualcomm, Apple and MediaTek.Based on a report from Strategy Analytics, Qualcomm maintains its lead at 42% followed by Apple at 21 percent and MediaTek at 10 percent. 

It is estimated that Samsung shipped about 50 million Exynos chipsets last year. The percentage of Samsung smartphones carrying the Exynos chipset is about 15 percent. With Samsung releasing the Exynos 8 Octa 8890-powered Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in some countries, the company has a good chance of advancing into the top three this year.
