    Galaxy S23 could exclusively use Snapdragon processor worldwide

    Samsung's Exynos chipsets have been problematic over the past few years due to poor design or an underwhelming fabrication process. Fed up with the string of poor performances, Samsung may switch to Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors for the Galaxy S23 series.

    According to noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Qualcomm will likely be the sole supplier of chipsets (model number SM8550) for the Galaxy S23 series. In comparison, 70% of the Galaxy S22 units used the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, while the remaining 30% of units used the Exynos 2200 chipset with AMD's Xclipse 920 GPU. The next-generation Snapdragon processor reportedly uses TSMC's optimized 4nm process node.

    Exynos 2300 is reportedly not as good as Snapdragon 8 Gen 1

    While Samsung's System LSI division is working on the Exynos 2300 chipset, it may not find any takers. The chipset will reportedly be made using Samsung Foundry's 4nm process, which has been problematic in terms of power efficiency. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is reportedly a better chipset overall, featuring better performance and higher power efficiency.

    Since the South Korean firm will use Snapdragon processors in all its high-end phones next year, Qualcomm's market share in the high-end segment is set to rise. Samsung's mobile division has reportedly created a team of 1,000 engineers to work on a custom high-end chipset for Galaxy smartphones, and the first such chip is rumored to arrive in 2025 with the Galaxy S25.

    This is great news for Galaxy fans, who can expect good all-around performance from their smartphones. However, it's terrible news for Samsung's System LSI division which designs Exynos processors, and the Samsung Foundry division, which usually fabricates them.
