Samsung signup Wolfson with multi-year deal


Samsung has signed a multi-year licensing deal with UK-based audio chip manufacturer Wolfson. The Galaxy S4 will have the Wolfson audio chip.

Wolfson’s CEO Mike Hickey said,

‘This is a significant milestone for Wolfson, and we are delighted to be making this announcement. Having worked closely with Samsung over recent years on their Galaxy range of tablets and smartphones, this agreement is a testament to our strong IP portfolio and our growing partnership, and we very much look forward to working closely together to continue to deliver exceptional audio in Samsung’s smartphones and tablets.’

Wolfson will have, as a partner of Samsung  early access to products including the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Previously,

Like Samsung, Wolfson holds a lot of patents in mobile technology and this new deal covers intellectual property, suggesting the companies will share insight into developing new tech. The agreement will see Wolfson providing chips to all Samsung launches for the next couple of years starting with the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Wolfson is now apparently on track to meet its targets of a 26 per cent revenue boost to make £150 million in 2013.
