Worrying rumor suggests Samsung Galaxy S25 might be Exynos only


Samsung’s Exynos chipsets are basically Samsung’s answer to Apple’s A-series of chipsets, where the company is trying to make its own chipsets instead of relying on outsiders. Unfortunately, Samsung’s Exynos chipsets have largely failed to impress. This is why we’re kind of worried about the Samsung Galaxy S25, if the rumors are true.

According to a post on X by @OreXda, they claim that in 2025, the Samsung Galaxy S25 could be Exynos only. The tipster does clarify that this is just a rumor that they have heard and it did not come from their usual source, so take it with a grain of salt for now. If it is true, that’s kind of disappointing unless Samsung has a new Exynos chipset that can blow Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 out of the water.

There are several reasons why people in general dislike the Exynos chipsets. They offer worse thermals, power efficiency, and are found to be slightly slower compared to Qualcomm’s offerings. Not to mention the fact that customers don’t get to choose which chipset they want. This means that some customers in some regions are essentially paying the same price for “worse” performance.

Earlier this year, Qualcomm announced that they have extended their deal with Samsung. But as the rumor claims, the Galaxy Z foldable series will be Snapdragon only. This means that in theory, Samsung and Qualcomm’s partnership will continue but maybe not for its Galaxy S flagship phones. Since nothing has been confirmed yet, we’ll just have to wait and see.
