Recently, according to report, Samsung is said to equip the Galaxy S23 Series wish Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. Of course, this is an already known fact.

However, the difference this time is that Samsung will use the Snapdragon processor globally on the S23 series, and there will be no self-developed Exynos version. And Samsung's own Exynos platform may be mainly used for mid-range smartphones in the future, rather than flagship models.

It is understood that Samsung has tried to expand its market share by using the Exynos platform manufactured at 5nm and 4nm, but the source said that the production of the 4nm version has so far been very low, and its performance and heat problems have not been up to par.

And in the face of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 using TSMC's 4nm process technology, using the next-generation Exynos will cause performance differences, which will bring hidden problems between different versions. Based on performance considerations, Samsung's mobile phone department had to switch to Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and abandon the self-developed Exynos.

Another source told TheElec that Samsung may also invest very little resources in the development of the 4nm node, as it is considered a transition between 5nm and 3nm. But they added that customer acceptance and demand for 4nm is higher than expected.

Samsung chip boss Kyung Kye-hyun admitted in September that the company lags behind rival TSMC in both schedule and output at both the 5nm and 4nm nodes. From this point of view, if Samsung wants to regain its original glory, it must reform and develop effectively.

It is worth mentioning that in July this year, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that thanks to Qualcomm's next-generation flagship 5G processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, using TSMC's 4nm manufacturing, Qualcomm is likely to become the only processor supplier for the Samsung Galaxy S23.

In general, it may really be a helpless choice for Samsung mobile phones to choose Qualcomm Snapdragon processors in the future, but for consumers, such a choice is the best.
