SamMobile Podcast Episode 17: Are Exynos chipsets going away?

It’s Friday, and we have another SamMobile Podcast ready for our readers and YouTube / Spotify subscribers. As usual, for Episode 17, we’re recapping some of the most exciting news of the week. And what a week it was?! Samsung and Qualcomm have extended their chipset license agreement to 2030, and this could mean big changes for the Exynos line of chipsets.

Samsung’s in-house Exynos chipset division isn’t doing great. Galaxy devices powered by Snapdragon are almost always superior to Exynos counterparts, and the Galaxy S22 series was unable to break this loop.

After disappointing fans for the past couple of years, Samsung is reportedly abandoning the Exynos SoC and switching entirely to a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset for the upcoming Galaxy S23 series.

Can this mean that the Exynos line is going away for good? Well, not quite. You can learn more about the topic from our latest podcast hosted by Benjamin. But the gist is that Samsung wants to reorganize its system-on-chip business model and is “pursuing a plan to strengthen our competitiveness in the mid-to-long term.” Samsung’s Exynos division might strategically retreat for now until it returns in full force later down the line.
