Samsung launched its mainstream flagship Galaxy S24 series just over a month ago. But we already have a Galaxy S25 rumor suggesting Samsung may ditch the Snapdragon chips in favor of its in-house Exynos processors for all models globally. 

The information comes from a somewhat-reliable leaker named Connor on X/Twitter. According to the leaker, Samsung may once again drop its two different chip strategies for the next-gen Galaxy handset. 

Previously, Samsung did the same with the Galaxy S23 series, which used Qualcomm chips for all its variants globally. 

However, according to the rumor, Samsung is going to flip its strategy this time by ditching Qualcomm chips and going all-in with its own Exynos chips.

Samsung’s decision to go all Exynos with the Galaxy S25 could easily backfire

The standard and the plus variants of the latest Galaxy S24 series use Exynos chips outside the US, while the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is used in the US. 

The only expectation is the Galaxy S24 Ultra, which uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 globally. 

If the rumor is indeed accurate, Samsung will be taking a risk with this decision for the Galaxy S25 series.

The general thinking is that the Qualcomm chips deliver more power and better power efficiency than the Exynos chips. 

However, Samsung’s latest Exynos 2400 chip has performed surprisingly well, and it is a significant improvement over the Exynos 2200, which had overheating and battery drain issues. 

If Samsung is planning to go all-in with the Exynos chips, then the company really believes that its in-house chips can beat the flagship Qualcomm chip that is powering all the flagship Android handsets today.

On the other hand, the company could take the Exynos route to deliver hardware-specific features, but there haven’t been any such rumors.  

Either way, this is just a very early Galaxy S25 rumor, so do accept it with skepticism.
