Samsung Galaxy S23 series might ditch Exynos chipsets completely


For years, Samsung has used both Qualcomm and its own Exynos chipsets for its flagship smartphones. Some markets would get the Qualcomm variant, some would get the Exynos variant.

The issue is that in the recent years, the performance discrepancy between Qualcomm’s chipsets and the Exynos chipsets have been getting bigger in favor of Qualcomm, leading to customers who got the Exynos chipsets complaining. That might change in 2023 where Samsung could ditch the use of their own Exynos chipsets in the upcoming Galaxy S23 series.

This is according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who claims that Qualcomm will most likely be the sole supplier of chipsets for the Galaxy S23. This is versus the Galaxy S22 where Qualcomm accounted for 70% of the supplied chipsets. Apparently this is because Qualcomm’s next-gen chipset, most likely the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, is said to outperform the Exynos 2300 “in all aspects”.

This is great news for those who used to get the Exynos version of the Galaxy S-series as performance of the Galaxy S23 series would in theory be more equal across the board. This is also not the first time we’re hearing that this is a possibility.

Take this with a grain of salt for now since nothing has been confirmed, but hopefully Samsung might have an official comment to make about it soon.
