On a conference call for analysts and investors, Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon revealed that 75% of Samsung’s Galaxy S22 series devices shipped are powered by a Snapdragon processor. More precisely, it is a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, while S22 series devices with Samsung’s Exynos processors were mostly sold on the European market.
After that data, Amon revealed that the share of Qualcomm processors in future Samsung devices from the S23 series will be even higher. That statement backs up speculation we’ve already written about that Samsung will drop Exynos processors in several upcoming iterations of the Galaxy S series of smartphones, starting with next year’s S23. This would make Samsung’s S series flagship devices exclusively use Qualcomm processors.
It is expected that Exynos processors could reappear on Samsung Galaxy S devices, but only after the reorganization of the Exynos department. Samsung is reportedly planning to put effort into designing the new flagship Exynos processor from the ground up in the coming years, and until then top models will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon.
