Analyst points out that Samsung would launch the next Galaxy S series device only with Qualcomm chips .
Samsung could be paving the way for all of its new Galaxy S series handsets to come with only Qualcomm chipsand no longer Exynos .
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Samsung is likely to work globally with Qualcomm for its new phones and no longer launch regional variants with Exynos .
end of an era
Currently, Samsung distributes Galaxy S and Note series devices with chip depending on which region you live. For example, in the United States they were distributed with Qualcomm , while in Europe or Asia with Exynos .
The problem was that the variants with Snapdragon ended up offering, according to analysis, better results in experience such as battery or power in games, so buying a model with Exynos ended up being a disadvantage .
Given this, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo points out that “the S23 may not adopt Exynos 2300 made by Samsung 4nm because it cannot compete with SM8550 in all aspects”, referring to upcoming flagship chips from Samsung and Qualcomm.
Kuo adds that such a decision would further cement Qualcomm ‘s dominance in the Android market.
What will happen to Exynos?
What all of that could mean for the future of Samsung ‘s Exynos brand is hard to say. The company spent years working with AMD to design and build the Galaxy S22’s Exynos 2200, only for that chip to run into many of the same issues that plagued its predecessors.
