Many users are very concerned about Samsung’s next-generation flagship, the Galaxy S23 series of mobile phones. Back in July, well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Qualcomm will likely become the sole processor supplier for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series. This is mainly because the Exynos 2300 processor cannot compete with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. In July, Qualcomm announced a strategic cooperation with Samsung. Ming-Chi Kuo said on the same day that in the transcript of Qualcomm’s third-quarter 2022 earnings call, Qualcomm said, “What I can say right now is that we were at 75% usage on the Galaxy S22 before the deal. You should take into account that we’ll be better off with the Galaxy S23 and newer.”
