The South Korean tech giant has recently launched two versions of its flagship Galaxy S series smartphones in the past. Depending on the target markets, one uses its Exynos chipsets and the other employs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets.
In 2023, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S23 lineup that adopts Snapdragon chipsets, however, there are rumors that the company plans to return to Exynos chips for some Galaxy S24 units, while in 2025 some Galaxy S25 units are expected to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4.
Ahead of these two new devices, the company is also gearing up to bring the new Galaxy S23 FE smartphone later this year. But yes, the camera specifications for the upcoming S23 FE are not the same or new because the company is looking to downgrade its front camera sensor to 10MP.
Samsung Galaxy S25 could use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 with Nuvia CPU core
As per the latest report from the Weibo tipster, Digital Chat Station, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 would be launched before the end of 2024 and would use Qualcomm’s Nuvia CPU cores. The new chipset would feature two high-performance Phoenix CPU cores and four energy-efficient Phoenix CPU cores and be manufactured by TSMC using its 3nm manufacturing process.
However, Samsung is rumored to be developing an all-new chipset in-house for its future flagship smartphones that are expected to offer breakthrough performance and high energy efficiency.
As per the reliable Twitter tipster Ice Universe (@universeice) the Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24 Ultra batteries are spotted with the model number. The Plus model has a battery with the model number EB-BS926ABY, which has a rated capacity of 4,755mAh and the battery of the high-end Ultra model is listed with the model number EB-BS928ABY, which has a rated capacity of 4,855mAh. Therefore, the Galaxy S24+ and the Galaxy S24 Ultra handsets are likely to pack batteries with typical values of 4,900mAh and 5,000mAh, respectively.
The rumors indicate that this chipset would be equipped with a powerful AMD GPU and some Samsung Galaxy S25 units could adopt it.
