Global Galaxy S variants may not feature Samsung's Exynos chips in the next flagship

It could be the end of an era for Samsung with its next Galaxy S series phone. It seems likely that the company will solely source its next S series flagship processor from Qualcomm,

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Samsung would be making a significant departure from its current business model.

Throughout the company's history, its flagship phones have used both Snapdragon and Exynos processors.

Depending on where you lived, you'd get different models. Customers in Europe and Asia are envious of Samsung's Galaxy S and Note series phones in the US because they have exclusive Qualcomm chips.

The Snapdragon chips have generally outperformed Samsung's in-house chips in nearly every situation in which it offered both Exynos and Snapdragon editions of phones.  Moreover, Qualcomm processors are known to offer a more stable gaming and app experience.

According to Kuo, Samsung has found it increasingly difficult to ignore reality. SM85050, Samsung's next flagship chip, cannot compete with Exynos 2300, another Samsung 4nm chip,

According to a tweet he posted on Twitter. Qualcomm's dominance in the Android market would be further reinforced if such a decision were made, Kuo notes.

Samsung's Exynos brand may have a bright future, but what exactly that means is hard to say. As a result of its years of collaboration with AMD on the Galaxy S22's Exynos 2200, the chip still faces many of the same issues that plagued its predecessor.

According to media reports, Samsung Mobile president TM Roh told employees the company was working on a chipset designed for its smartphones that would be 'unique.' He did not elaborate on how it would differ from Exynos.
