Qualcomm confirms Samsung Galaxy S23 series will use only Snapdragon chipsets

0 14

Samsung is expected to launch its Galaxy S23 series phones in the first week of February according to the latest rumours, and this could be the year when all models will launch with the same chipset globally. Rumors of a Snapdragon line of phones in the Galaxy S23 series have been swirling for months, and the latest earnings call from Qualcomm all but confirms those rumors to be true.

During their Q4 earnings call (transcript in the source link), Qualcomm CFO Akash Palkhiwala confirmed expectations for a strong second half of the March quarter (Q1) 2023, which is likely to coincide with the first months of sales of the Galaxy S23 series phones. He also confirmed that Qualcomm has gone from a 75% share (of chipsets) in the Galaxy S22 series to a global share – meaning Qualcomm chipsets for all models in the S23 series.

So from a March quarter perspective, you’re right, the benefit of the Samsung launch of the new phone would be in terms of the second half of the March quarter. So it comes in towards the end of the quarter, but it will be an advantage, whereas our share from 75% in G S22 goes up to global share in G S23. – Akash Palkhiwala (CFO of Qualcomm)

All three Samsung Galaxy S23 series phones (S23, S23+ and S22 Ultra) have already passed through Geekbench exclusively with the alleged Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

Qualcomm all but confirms that the Samsung Galaxy S23 series will use Snapdragon chipsets globally

Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon confirmed a multi-year partnership with Samsung that will bring the Snapdragon chipset to all premium Samsung Galaxy phones globally.

On handsets, we entered into a new multi-year agreement with Samsung that extends the use of Snapdragon platforms to future premium Samsung Galaxy products globally. – Cristiano Renno Amon (Qualcomm CEO)

A report from last month still suggests that an Exynos-powered Galaxy S23 series is not out of the question, despite disappointment from in-house Exynos chips from the Samsung MX (Mobile eXperience) division.
