A new era of Samsung’s Galaxy S series phones may be coming to an end with the company’s next model. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Qualcomm will be the only supplier of the chipset for the upcoming S series flagship. Samsung would be making a huge change if this were to happen. The business has employed both Snapdragon and Exynos processors in its top devices throughout the years.
Depending on where you resided, you would get a different model. Samsung’s European and Asian consumers are envious of the exclusive use of Qualcomm processors in the US Galaxy S and Note series. Most of the time, when Samsung has offered both a Snapdragon and Exynos version of a phone, the Snapdragon version has either outperformed or given greater battery life. In terms of applications and games, Qualcomm CPUs tend to be more reliable.
Kuo thinks that Samsung can no longer deny reality. According to him, “S23 may not adopt Exynos 2300 built by Samsung 4nm since it cannot compete with the SM8550 from both Samsung and Qualcomm in all respects.” According to Kuo, such a move would solidify Qualcomm’s hold on the Android market even more.
It’s difficult to predict what all of this will entail for Samsung’s Exynos brand in the future. The Exynos 2200 processor in the Galaxy S22 was designed and built by the firm for years with the help of AMD, only to suffer the same problems as its predecessors. Employees were informed in April that Samsung was working on a “unique” microprocessor that would be “exclusive” to Samsung devices, but TM Roh did not explain on how that component would vary from the company’s current Exynos designs.
