The new Samsung Galaxy S23 devices are coming in the first quarter of 2023, now it looks like we have some details on the device. In most cases, Samsung sells two processor variants of their flagship smartphones: one with a Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and one with their own Exynos chipset.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Samsung will not be using an Exynos processor in next year’s Galaxy S23 range, instead, they will exclusively use the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon flagship processor.
1. Qualcomm will likely be the sole processor supplier for Samsung Galaxy S23 (vs. 70% shipment proportion for S22) thanks to the next flagship 5G chip SM8550 made by TSMC 4nm.

This is apparently due to the Exynos processors’ failure to deal with the next-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon. It would be illogical for Samsung to provide two versions of a smartphone, one of which is less powerful than the other.
Samsung will apparently stick with just the Qualcomm Snapdragon for the whole Galaxy S23 range of devices, this would ensure that all of the models in the range offer similar performance.
We are expecting Samsung to unveil their new Galaxy flagship smartphones sometime in quarter one of 2023, probably in either February or March of next year. As soon as we get some details on when the new Galaxy S23 range of smartphones is going to launch, we will let you know.
