In the Galaxy S flagship series, Qualcomm’s competitor Exynos chipset has been gaining ground on Samsung’s own offering. Exynos 2200 was only available for use in European units this year; Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 was used in all other units. In a conference call to discuss second-quarter earnings, Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon disclosed that the Snapdragon chip was used in 75% of S22 devices.
The CEO predicted that this percentage will increase the following year, supporting analysts’ claims that the Galaxy S23 series will only feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. Before the arrangement, “[W]e were 75% on Galaxy S22. You ought to consider the fact that on Galaxy S23 and later, we’ll be far better than that, Amon said. Even though he didn’t say it would be 100%, there isn’t much of a difference between 75% and 100% when you consider that the distinct versions will require twice as much software support.

The relationship between Qualcomm and Samsung “expands beyond Galaxy smartphones to encompass Galaxy books, Windows PCs, Galaxy tablets, future extended reality devices, and other products,” according to Amon. In order to include 3G, 4G, 5G, and (in time) 6G devices, the two businesses renewed their patent licensing arrangement through 2030.
Is the Exynos division coming to a close? Samsung claims that it should be overhauled but not necessarily. Exynos chips will be extended to various form factors, like wearables, in the near future, the business plans. The Exynos mid-range and low-end chips are also available; Samsung is seeking new clients for these chips, which are reportedly here to stay.
Official confirmation of Samsung assembling a team to create a new smartphone chipset has not yet been made, but observers claim it has. It might take some time, as the Galaxy S series is anticipated to only employ Snapdragon processors till 2024. Rumor has it that the plan is to forego iterative improvements and instead use the next few years to create a new chipset essentially from scratch.
Again, this is only conjecture, but it appears that the Exynos 2300’s performance may have been negatively impacted by the Exynos 2230 5G, which in turn disappointed consumers (the 5G modem is embedded). It will instead make use of Samsung’s Snapdragon X70 processor.
Since the beginning, only Snapdragon processors have been used in Samsung’s foldable devices, and we anticipate that this will continue with the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Z Fold 4. Probably the 8+ Gen 1 will be given to them.
The second generation of the Snapdragon 8 processor will be introduced in mid-November, and its first phones are anticipated to arrive in December. Later, at the start of 2023, the Galaxy S23 series should be released.
