According to some reports (which we don’t believe too much) in South Korea, Samsung could be considering the possibility of launching its Galaxy S23 only with Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets… Do it!
To Samsung it has done quite well in the mobile market in recent times, although the truth is that with each presentation of his family flagship we always have the same discussionand it is that the South Korean giant insists on launch its Galaxy S with Qualcomm chipset in certain countries leaving us to the main international markets with the units powered by their SoC samsung exynos.
This should not be so bad, especially after Samsung adopted AMD Radeon technology for its GPUs and get improve efficiency with your Exynos 2200although in reality most users still prefer Qualcomm options which, in addition, also exclusively power the folding Galaxy Z. Samsung’s strange strategy, yes…
All this could change in the next financial year 2023, and it is that according to what our colleagues from SamMobilewho were on the trail of reputable analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo in South Korea, it seems that at Samsung they would now be in favor of abandoning their Exynos chips to launch all Galaxy S23 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 in all markets where they will be available early next year.
The news is not trivial because it had been rumored for a long time, and Kuo himself also says that the Galaxy S23 have already been sold by 70% powered by Qualcommexcept for the generalized those marketed in Europe and Samsung’s own home country, South Koreawhere it is also available only with Exynos 2200.
Experts say that Samsung is more aware now, after giving the huge step with Xclipse GPUs and AMD’s RDNA2 architecture that the solutions may look very good on paper, but nevertheless require massive back support to make them work properly and 100% satisfactorily.
Resources are not unlimited, and developing these integrated solutions for mobile implies an expense that Samsung would like to divert to other departments where profitability and return were higher.
In addition, it is said that the 4-nanometer Exynos 2300 that Samsung has in the oven is no match for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SM8550since the latter is based on the latest 4 nanometer lithography from TSMC which has been shown to be much more efficient and powerful than that of Samsung itself.
It seems that Samsung is aware that its Exynos 2300 will not be up to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 precisely due to TSMC’s 4-nanometer lithography, so it makes no sense to boost its ‘flagship’ mobiles with a clearly processor lower.
So that, there is no point in continuing to insist on an Exynos 2300 for the Galaxy S23which would be passed to Qualcomm to make room for that cutting performance chipset from Samsung enhance other less representative products although also in the noble part of the catalogue. Will Exynos be the heart of the Galaxy Tab S of 2023?
In any case, we have already seen Samsung announce that they are already manufacturing 3 nanometer chipsand that too work on a dedicated chip for Galaxy smartphonesalthough neither one nor the other technology will be ready for smartphones surely until 2025… You will have to be patient!
