Samsung Galaxy S25: Not Using Snapdragon Chips?

TECH NEWS – According to a less plausible rumor, the South Korean company may take a different approach to its next generation Samsung Galaxy handset.


We should point out that Samsung has just released the Galaxy S24 lineup, so we’re still almost a year away from the South Korean tech giant unveiling the Galaxy S25 at the next Galaxy Unpacked. While the Galaxy S24 uses a different chip per region for Samsung (some with the Snapdragon chipset, some with the Exynos), and this approach could change from the next generation onwards if the rumor that surfaced on Twitter is true and not some fiction.

While Samsung and Qualcomm have a multi-year agreement, so in principle we could expect the Galaxy S25 to have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset. However, rumor has it that Samsung’s 2025 models may feature different chips per product line. The Galaxy A products, the entry-level phones, could be made with Mediatek and Exynos chips, the mid-range Galaxy S could see the use of an Exynos chipset, while the high-end foldable Galaxy Z would only use Snapdragon!

Since the Z devices are based on the S, it would be strange if Samsung only used the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 in the Galaxy Z devices. However, it’s also worth remembering that the Exynos 2400 has shown quite good performance compared to the Snapdragon chipset, but it would still be a pretty shocking move from the South Koreans if they limited which chipset would be used per product family. Would this be the company’s way of shifting users who rely on Qualcomm chipsets to the Galaxy Z?

However, it’s too early for Samsung to decide, as 2025 is still a long way off, and the company’s vision could change by then if it does indeed go down this route with its Galaxy handsets. We may hear more about this in the coming weeks and months, so until then we will treat this as a rumor.
