Samsung – As previously speculated through several reports, the upcoming Galaxy S23 series will ditch the Exynos chipset and will be completely replaced by the Snapdragon chipset. Qualcomm CFO Akash Palkhiwala confirmed the presence of chipsets in Samsung flagships while announcing the Q4 2022 financial reports. Breaking all odds, the new flagship smartphone will be launched with the same chipset worldwide.
Qualcomm expects to record strong growth in Q1 2023 by launching new devices using its next flagship chipset. In addition, the date that coincided with the launch of the Galaxy S23 prompted stronger sales. In a statement, Akash Palkhiwala said, “So from the perspective of the March quarter, you are right, the benefits of Samsung’s launch for the new phones will be in the second half of the March quarter. So it came in towards the end of the quarter, but that would be a gain, whereas our share of 75% in G S22 went up to global share in G S23. – Akash Palkhiwala (CFO Qualcomm).”
Moreover, the report calls even confirms a new multi-year agreement for using Qualcomm chipsets in Samsung’s premium segment phones.
