Some rumors recently revealed that Samsung is planning to drop the high-end Exynos processor in phones coming in 2023 and 2024, which means the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S24 phones will exclusively use the Qualcomm Snapdragon silicon processor.

Veteran analyst Ming-Chi Kuo later confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S23 may only use a Snapdragon processor. This would be a big turn of events for Samsung, which launched two different processor versions of its flagship Galaxy S series phones years ago.

3 reasons why you might buy a Samsung Galaxy S23

However, there are several reasons that will increase the attractiveness of the Samsung Galaxy S23 phones and may push you to buy them at launch.

1- One version of the phone all over the world

The most prominent and important reason is that the company will give consumers one version of the phone, regardless of where they bought the device.

Users in Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa were getting models powered by the Exynos processor, although only Europe got the Galaxy S22 version with the Exynos processor this year. This processor offered lower quality performance, which meant that consumers in these regions were getting a less powerful phone at a similar, if not higher, price.

Even when the Exynos-powered model offered similar performance in terms of power, Samsung’s processor still lagged behind in other areas, such as gaming support.

There are also slight differences between the Exynos and Snapdragon versions when it comes to photo and video quality. reported DXOMark The Galaxy S22 Ultra powered by the Exynos processor was outperformed by the Snapdragon-powered model in most scenarios, video quality and telephoto quality in low light.

So, just switching to the Snapdragon silicon for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series means that users in regions receiving Exynos-powered phones will finally get the same phone at the same price.

2- Advanced processor with better performance

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200 used in this year’s S22 series were made by Samsung, but testing showed that Qualcomm outperformed the Exynos 2200 in GPU performance. However, results are closer with longer use.

However, Qualcomm has decided to return to Taiwan’s TSMC to manufacture the latest Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, but with a 30% efficiency increase compared to the first generation Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and an approximately 10% increase in CPU and GPU speed.

All this indicates that TSMC offers superior manufacturing capabilities compared to Samsung. Furthermore, various rumors suggest that Qualcomm will stick with TSMC to manufacture the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo confirmed the rumors a few days ago, claiming that Samsung might not adopt the Exynos 2300 processor for the Galaxy S23 because it can’t compete with the next generation Snapdragon processor. He confirmed that the Exynos processor will be manufactured in Samsung with an accuracy of 4 nm, while the Snapdragon processor will be manufactured in TSMC with an accuracy of 4 nm.

Samsung’s Exynos processors could face a similar big defeat if we get two versions of the Samsung Galaxy S23 phones powered by Exynos and Snapdragon processors next year.

3- Other great features

Although the Galaxy S23 series is powered by a Snapdragon processor only, Samsung won’t need to worry about feature parity. We’ve already seen the company drop a cool feature offered on one model because the other doesn’t support the same capability.

One notable example is that the Galaxy S8 series has officially lost the 4K/60fps video recording feature because the Snapdragon 835 lacked it. Similarly, the Galaxy S10 series lost the 8K video recording feature even though the Exynos 990 supports it, because the Snapdragon 865 does not. The Galaxy S22 series also appears to be missing support for 8K video recording and HDR quality because the Exynos 2200 does not.

Samsung wouldn’t need to worry about feature parity if there was only one version, which opens the way for Samsung phones to take full advantage of the capabilities of the Snapdragon processor, such as 8K video recording and HDR quality.
