Samsung launched the Galaxy S24 series in January with Snapdragon and the in-house Exynos chipset. The South Korean tech giant was tipped last month that it would completely switch to Exynos SoC for the entire Galaxy S25 lineup next year. However, a new report contradicts these claims and reveals that Samsung will once again choose to split its Galaxy S25 smartphones between Snapdragon and Exynos chipsets. The company will reportedly utilize Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 and Exynos 2500 chipsets in its next-generation flagship Galaxy S series smartphones.

According to a report by DigiTimes Asia (via SamMobile), Samsung will stick to its strategy of using both Qualcomm and Exynos chipsets for its Galaxy S series smartphones. The report doesn’t specify which phones in the lineup will run on Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, but we can expect the Qualcomm SoC to power the top-end Galaxy S25 Ultra in all markets. Other phones in the series, which are likely to be the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+, could feature either the Exynos 2500 chipset or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, depending on where they are sold.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 globally, while the in-house Exynos 2400 SoC powers the base Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ in markets outside the US, including India.

Last month, there were rumors that Samsung could also use Exynos SoCs or Snapdragon chips in its Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 foldables, depending on the region. This is a departure from Samsung’s usual practice of equipping its Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip smartphones with Snapdragon processors.

Samsung is also working to close the performance gap between Qualcomm and Exynos chipsets. Last week, a tipster claimed that the company’s Exynos 2500 processor outperforms the current Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC in terms of CPU and GPU performance. However, this claim was not supported by any performance metrics or benchmark numbers.

Although there are no benchmarks yet, the Exynos 2500 chipset is said to consist of a Cortex-X5 core clocked at over 3.2GHz, three Cortex-A730 cores clocked at up to 2.5GHz, two Cortex-A730 cores, and four Cortex-A730 cores. A520 core with undisclosed clock speed.

In early March, there were tips that the Galaxy S25 series would run entirely on Samsung’s Exynos chipset. Meanwhile, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset has been confirmed to launch alongside custom Oryon CPUs at the Snapdragon Summit in October. This chipset is expected to be featured in upcoming flagship Android phones such as Samsung Galaxy S25, Xiaomi 15 series, and Asus Zenfone 11.
