All Samsung Galaxy S25 series models to be powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC

Sagar, 18 June 2024

A few months ago, we heard that the Samsung Galaxy S25 series coming next year would be all-Exynos everywhere, meaning no model in the lineup would have Qualcomm's Snapdragon chip at the helm in any region. However, the new information from popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests the opposite.

Kuo claims Samsung's upcoming flagship chip - expected to be called Exynos 2500 - "may not ship due to Samsung's lower-than-expected 3nm yield" and will thus make Qualcomm the sole supplier of the SoC for the Galaxy S25 lineup. That means the S25 series phones will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, which will be unveiled in October.

If true, this won't be the first time Samsung will launch an all-Snapdragon Galaxy S lineup. Last year, all the Samsung Galaxy S23 series smartphones were powered by the Snapdragon chip in all regions - a first for the Korean brand. However, with the Galaxy S24 lineup, Samsung went back to its old strategy of launching its Galaxy S flagships with Exynos chips in some markets and with Snapdragon chips in others.

That said, it's still early to say anything about the Galaxy S25 series with certainty since the plans can always change.

Is not even software what makes it hard to use a phone for many years. I haven't seen any major app that doesn't work on Android 11 for example. Even Android 10, maybe. Main factor is the battery going bust in the two or three year mark. ...
