Samsung Galaxy S23 series will use only Snapdragon chipsets, confirm by Qualcomm. According to the most recent speculations, Samsung will release its Galaxy S23 series phones in the first week of February, and this may be the first year that all models will be released with the same processor worldwide.
There have been speculations for months that the Galaxy S23 series would be powered entirely by Snapdragon, and Qualcomm’s most recent earnings conference seems to corroborate this. During Qualcomm’s fourth quarter results call (transcript available at the source link), CFO Akash Palkhiwala reaffirmed the company’s optimism for the second half of the March quarter (Q1) 2023, which is expected to coincide with the launch of the Galaxy S23 series of smartphones.

In addition, he verified that Qualcomm’s market share has increased from 75% (of chipsets) in the Galaxy S22 series to a worldwide share (i.e., Qualcomm chipsets for all models of the S23 series). Each of the three Samsung Galaxy S23 models (the S23, S23+, and S22 Ultra) has been confirmed by Geekbench to be equipped with the rumored Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.
Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon has announced the company’s multiyear agreement with Samsung, which would see the Snapdragon processor included in all high-end Galaxy smartphones sold worldwide. Last month’s rumor said that despite Samsung MX’s (Mobile eXperience) unhappiness with its own Exynos CPUs, the company was still considering releasing an Exynos-powered Galaxy S23 series.
