The rumors are claiming that for the Galaxy S24 series, Samsung could return to the Qualcomm and Exynos variants, where some markets could get Qualcomm’s chipsets, while others would get Exynos chipsets.
If you’re not a fan of the Exynos chipsets, then you might need to open your wallets a little bigger. This is because according to a report from Korean publication The Elec, it seems that Samsung will be using Qualcomm’s chipsets exclusively for the Galaxy S24 Ultra variant, while the base Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ could use Qualcomm and Exynos chipsets.
This is kind of good news for those who were already planning to get the Ultra model, but for those who didn’t, you’ll either have to choose to pay more for the Ultra version or make do with the Exynos chipset, assuming you’re living in a region that will get the Exynos models.
While the Exynos chipsets are pretty decent on paper, they do fall short in several areas compared to Qualcomm. This has angered a lot of users who don’t have a choice in which chipset they receive, but yet still pay the same amount as the rest who are in markets that have the Qualcomm variant of the phone.
Also, recent benchmarks have suggested that the GPU in the upcoming Exynos 2400 chipset falls behind the current Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, making things worse. Either way, take this with a grain of salt and we should have more details early next year.
