That said, Samsung has Exynos chips and pretty soon there will be one for the Galaxy S9 with (I assume) a much improved GPU.

Plus, Samsung controls the whole stack - it makes chipsets, RAM, screens in house - so it could custom build parts if necessary.

Snapdragon based?

They may as well never release that. That company hasn't produced a good mobile SoC for years. If it was not for their modem monopoly they'd be nowhere to be found.
