Samsung’s new dedicated chipset is expected to debut with the Galaxy S25 series in 2025
Tipster Ice Universe says Samsung will release more information about its dedicated Galaxy chipset when the S23 line is unveiled
For years, and with one exception (which we will was nostalgic about later), the flagship Galaxy S series was powered by Exynos chipsets in most regions of the world except for China and North America. In those markets, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoCs were used. For the Galaxy S23 series, the rumor mill says that all units will have an overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset under the hood. The reason? Samsung and its customers have lost faith in the Exynos branded silicon.
Samsung has a huge advantage when it comes to manufacturing chips that it needs to employ
Certainly Samsung does have an advantage here in that it owns its own foundry which is one of only two in the world capable of producing cutting-edge 3nm chips. TSMC is the other and Apple makes up 25% of the Taiwan-based foundry’s business. The point is that with its own foundry in its back pocket, there is no reason why Samsung can’t design a better chip than the Exynos application processors (AP) that it had been making and produce it itself.
Samsung is taking its time and the early reports say that this chip won’t be ready for use until 2025. This gives the company plenty of time to design something that Samsung hopes will take the Galaxy line to another level.
