There are a couple of reasons why buying a Samsung Galaxy phone in the UK really isn't a good idea.Despite the Galaxy S22's new Bora Purple color, it might not be a good idea to buy one.

Samsung's Galaxy S22 is currently one of its most premium devices, and folks who haven't taken the plunge yet have a colorful new option to choose from. With this refreshed design now joining Green, Pink Gold, and Phantom Black in the S22's current lineup, the Korean technology giant will soon start shipping the phone in Bora Purple.

The Bora Purple color is said to encapsulate optimism and a sense of calm with its pastel and neutral tones. Samsung's Sonia Chang said: 'With its pastel and neutral tones, Bora Purple embodies optimism and a sense of calm'. You will have the power of choice to unfold your world.'

Before you add one to your online shopping basket, think twice! When Samsung releases its new Galaxy S23 in around six months, the S23 could have a huge advantage over the S22 when purchased in the UK.

All versions of Samsung's next flagship are expected to be powered by Qualcomm processors, according to reports.It's worth noting that many of the recent flagship Galaxy S devices come with different processors depending on where they are purchased.

The Exynos chips from Samsung usually replace Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips in areas like the UK, for example.It's been an annoyance for some time since most tests show slightly improved performance and battery life for those with Qualcomm power.

In addition, Qualcomm has just announced that it will hold its annual Snapdragon Summit in November where it's likely to announce an even more powerful brain called Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

It's likely that Qualcomm will power the Galaxy S23, giving it a big boost over the current Galaxy S22, as top tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently suggested Samsung will ditch its own chips in the Galaxy S23 and use Qualcomm instead.

Cristiano Amon, Qualcomm's boss, has also hinted that his firm's chips will eventually make an appearance in more Galaxy phones.

“You should think about it this way: Snapdragon is going to power the Galaxy line of products, including the Galaxy flagships. At this point, I can say that we were 75% on Galaxy S22 before the agreement was reached. Think about how much better we'll be on Galaxy S23 and beyond.'
