While Samsung comfortably leads the smartphone industry with devices like the Galaxy S23 Ultra, its fortunes in the chip industry have been different. The company’s key rival, TSMC, dominates the segment, although Samsung has tried its best to gain parity, even coming close on some occasions. So it would be a big win for a company like Samsung to have some of the industry’s best talents on board to fulfill its ambitions in the semiconductor business. The manufacturer has done exactly that by hiring former TSMC engineer and industry veteran Lin Jun-cheng.
