Recently, I’ve been noticing Samsung making some interesting moves in the smartphone world. It seems like they’re switching gears, especially when it comes to the processors they use in their devices. Let’s dive into it Samsung’s Exynos plan for the future. 

Samsung Exynos Future Overview

A Shift in Strategy

So, here’s the deal: Samsung has been buddies with Qualcomm for quite a while now, especially for the flagship phones. Using Qualcomm’s chips also means shelling out big bucks. That’s where their own Exynos processors come into play.


Before, Samsung’s top-tier foldable phones and some of the Galaxy S series leaned heavily on Qualcomm’s chips. But guess what? They’ve started rolling out their own Exynos chips with the Galaxy S24 in select markets. 

Why the Switch?

Samsung figures if they make their own chips, they can save a pretty penny. Reports say they spent a whopping $9 billion on chips in 2023 alone. Samsung’s Exynos chips haven’t always been the talk of the town. In fact, shipments dropped by nearly half in the last quarter of 2023. Ouch! But hey, Samsung’s not backing down. They’re doubling down on Exynos.

What’s Next?

Samsung’s been pumping out phones like the Galaxy A35 5G and A55 5G with their very own Exynos chips inside. Rumor has it, that the next Galaxy S series might be rocking Exynos chips worldwide. And yes, the next top-tier S-series phone could feature an Exynos chipset. That might sound like a turnoff already, but I think there is more than eye meets, the next Exynos chipset could have similar performance compared to the available flagship Snapdragon chipset. 

Samsung made a smart move with the S24 and S24+ phones. They only made the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset available in the US, Canada, and South Korea. Why? Well, in the US, where iPhones hold a firm grip, Samsung probably wanted to offer a more powerful chipset to attract customers. As for South Korea, it’s a bit of a different story. There might be broader sociological issues at play, like an elitist attitude towards iPhones. In South Korea, owning anything less than an iPhone can sometimes be frowned upon.

But Wait, There’s Concerns

It is also true that it doesn’t quite match up to Qualcomm’s chips in terms of performance. Samsung hears you loud and clear. They’re putting in the work to make Exynos shine, promising better performance without breaking the bank.

Sure, saving money is nice, but there’s more to this switch than just cutting costs. Samsung wants to have more control over how the chips work in their phones. That means better performance and happier customers. 

Samsung Exynos: Conclusion

If Samsung pulls this off, we could see more affordable phones with top-notch performance. But if they stumble, we might stick to what we know works. Only time will tell. Samsung is shaking things up in the smartphone world, and it’s got me intrigued. Will the Samsung Exynos will have a future? It’s a gamble, but hey, fortune favors the bold, right?
