Samsung Galaxy S25 Series Shifts to All-Qualcomm Lineup Due to Exynos 2500 Problems

Published

on


Continued leaks and rumors suggest that Samsung is actively working on the Galaxy S25 series to launch in early 2025. The brand could exclusively use a Qualcomm processor for the entire Galaxy S25 series over its in-house Exynos 2500. 

Some Reports are aggressively reporting that Samsung could power the entire Galaxy S25 series with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 instead of its in-house Exynos 2500. The reason behind this seems to be that the Exynos 2500 processor suffers from poor yield and high power consumption in the 3nm process. This significant shift marks a departure from the Galaxy S24 series, where Qualcomm supplied only 40% of the processor. 

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the Korean giant is looking forward to switching to Qualcomm processors exclusively for all three variants of the Galaxy S25 series. He also predicted that the price of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor, based on Qualcomm’s self-developed Oryon CPU core, would boost by 25–30%. This price hike will probably be efficient for Qualcomm as the Koran brand boosts its chipset order share for the Galaxy S25 series. 

Initially, the Exynos 2500 chipset was supposed to be a game-changer, but that’s not the case anymore. The early benchmark suggests that the Exynos 2500 processor might outperform Qualcomm’s competition, but the Korean brand hit a sticky-out bit. Their 3nm manufacturing process goes through low production yields and high power consumption. As compared to TSMC’s similar technology, Samsung fell short by 10–20% in performance; this is the key reason why Samsung switched to Qualcomm processors for the Galaxy S25

Due to all this mess, Samsung’s struggles transparently highlight the worthiness of well-regulated manufacturing and technological advancements in the competitive chip industry, where TSMC presently leads in the 3nm process.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 keeps AMOLED cover display

Galaxy Z Flip 5 Cover

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 is on its way to make its debut at the Galaxy Unpacked event. The note-worthy fact is that the giant is not downgrading the cover display of the phone, as it will feature an AMOLED panel on the inside as well as the outside.

A couple of days ago, even before the official launch, a few images of the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6 leaked online. The leaked image suggests that the Korean giant is looking forward to attaching an AMOLED panel to the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6 device. 

However, it appears that the Samsung employee who created that leaked spec sheet made a typo. The report says that the cover screen of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be similar to that of its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 5. It will feature a 3.4-inch diagonal, the same folder-like shape, and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. 

Samsung has yet to announce the official specs and features of the phone, but following leaks and rumors, it’s expected that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip. The memory package could include 8GB and 12GB of RAM variants. It will feature a 50MP primary rear camera and a 4,000 mAh battery. 

It will run Android 14 and One UI 6.1.1 out of the box. The Korean giant has added some new Galaxy AI features that could arrive on existing devices through a software update. Along with the Galaxy Z Flip 6, the brand will also launch its sibling, the Galaxy Z Fold 6. Potentially, both could be eligible for seven years of OS and security patches.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim could feature a bigger display than the standard model

Samsung is aggressively ready to launch its next-gen Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Flip 6 next week at the launch event. Apart from these two, the brand is also gearing up to launch the slimmer variant of the Galaxy Z Fold 6, which could be on the floor as soon as Q4 2024. 

The new report from The Elec says that the production schedule for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 slim model has been finalized. If the report is to be believed, the brand could introduce the device as soon as Q4 2024, and 400,000 to 500,000 units will be shipped by the end of this year. However, the brand will make the slimmer variant of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 available only in selected markets. 

The Korean website also suggested that the forthcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6 slim variant will feature a larger cover screen and folding display. In light of this fact, it’s expected that it could feature a 6.5-inch smartphone display and an 8-inch folding screen. Whereas the actual Galaxy Z Fold 6 model is supposed to feature a 6.2 or 6.3-inch outer and a 7.6-inch folding screen. 

On the comparison side, Honor Magic V2 features a 7.29-inch folding and 6.43-inch outer screen, and Vivo X Fold 3 Pro has an 8.3-inch folding screen and a 6.53-inch outer screen. So the slimmer Galaxy Z Fold 6 would offer similarly large screens.

Reportedly, a few years back, Samsung had previously developed a Z Fold device with an 8-inch folding screen, but unfortunately, due to the foldable’s thickness, it was never seen on the market. Noticeably, the new variant will lack S Pen support, but it’ll be thinner as compared to the actual Z Fold 6. It was also noted that some unnamed components will have ‘higher specifications’ than the standards in Z Fold 6.

Galaxy Z Flip 6 Offers Smart Screen Features for Language Translation

Samsung is just a week away from the official launch of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6. Ahead of the official debut, leaks and rumors are continuously blowing in the market. Now the new leak says that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 makes smart use of the cover screen for language translation. 

The Galaxy Z Flip 6 will run Android 14-based One UI 6.1.1 out of the box. This software version will bring dozens of new AI-powered tools, including a new feature that uses the cover screen intelligently during language translation. A tipster on X shared marketing images of the Galaxy Z Flip 6. It has been revealed that Samsung has upgraded the interpreter mode for foldable phones. 

Galaxy Z Flip 6 Smart Translation

The images showcase that translated text is also visible on the cover screen to make it easier to see for the person conversing with the phone’s user. On the other side, a similar feature is also expected to arrive for the Galaxy Z Fold 6. Although Google has already introduced a similar feature for the Pixel Fold, now Samsung is looking forward to the feature. 

This feature will be beneficial in scenarios like international business meetings where you do not understand your colleague’s language. This feature will only work in Flex Mode, which means you have to fold the Galaxy Z Flip 6’s screen halfway to activate the cover screen. The latest Galaxy Z Flip 5 already has the Interpreter Mode, so it’s quite possible that the brand could expand this feature to the Galaxy Z Fold 5.
