Industry sources claim that Samsung has put together a team to create a new smartphone processor. As of now, it is impossible to confirm the veracity of this rumour. The future Galaxy S series handsets are anticipated to use Snapdragon CPUs solely through 2024. However this development may take some time and rumour has it that instead of making incremental improvements, a new chipset will be created essentially from scratch over the next few years.
The fact that Samsung signed a broad agreement with Qualcomm highlights the potential problems and subpar performance of the long-rumored Exynos 2230 5G. Another area in which Qualcomm established itself as the leader is with the X70 modem, which dominates the 5G modem market.
To top this off, Samsung’s foldables have only ever used Snapdragon processors since the beginning, and the next Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4 will follow this pattern. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC will power both of these smartphones.

“And what I can say at this point is we were 75% on Galaxy S22 before the agreement (sic). You should be thinking about we’re going to be much better than that on Galaxy S23 and beyond. It’s a multi-year agreement. And that’s probably what I can tell you. You should think about us powering their devices globally,” Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon said during the earnings call.
In mid-November, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be revealed, and the first phones that feature it are anticipated to arrive in December. The Galaxy S23 series should thereafter be released in the start of 2023.
