Samsung To Stick with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy Z Fold6 and Z Flip6


Samsung has been adopting a dual-chip strategy for some of its most recent flagships. That strategy was put on a hiatus last year with the Galaxy S23 series but we saw its comeback this year with Samsung Galaxy S24 series flagships. The latest Galaxy S flagships sell in both Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and Exynos 2400 flavors. Earlier, there were talks of a split chipset approach for the next foldable Galaxy Z Fold6 and Z Flip6. However, a recent report from trustable Korean news outlet The Elec, states that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will be the sole chip for both devices.

Samsung Will Stick with Single-Chip Strategy for both Galaxy Z Fold6 and Z Flip6

The decision of sticking with Qualcomm’s chip for both foldable comes down to factors like cost and Samsung’s relationship with Qualcomm. One could argue that is due to concerns on the performance offered by the Exynos 2400. However, with the latest chip, Samsung has been catching up delivering comparable performance. However, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is still favored by some users when they have the chance. Anyway, the decision is related to economics rather than to chip’s performance.

According to The Elec’s sources suggest that for Samsung’s dual-chip strategy to pay off, they need to sell a significant number of devices. However, the current market trends indicate that picking a single chipset, specially Snapdragon, is better for Samsung. The company certainly has fresh numbers to compare, as the last year’s Samsung Galaxy S23 sold only in Snapdragon flavor. Considering this, it makes more sense for the company to use a single chipset for its next foldable. After all, the foldable smartphones series does not match the Galaxy S in sales for a number of reasons. The pricing is one of them.

Using two chipsets would only drive costs up further. When it comes to foldable phones, the companies are doing their best for the opposite. We don’t know if Samsung will keep pushing this strategy for much longer, but if it does, we will only see dual-chipsets on foldable when they match the sales of early-year Galaxy S flagships.
