The Samsung Galaxy S23 line of smartphones may be left without the Exynos platform. Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks so.
He claims that Qualcomm is likely to be the sole SoC supplier for Samsung’s new flagships. In the current lineup, the share of Snapdragon platforms is 70%.
Kuo says that the Exynos 2300 will not be able to compete with the new Snapdragon SM8550 SoC, which will likely be called the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. At the same time, Kuo does not say that the Exynos 2300 has been canceled or will not be released at all, that is, it may be used in some other Samsung smartphones, but we have not seen anything like this before.
It is also worth remembering that such rumors about the abandonment of Exynos platforms for Samsung’s flagship smartphones appear almost every year, and as a result, every year a new top Exynos SoC still comes out.
