Samsung won’t use its Exynos chips inside the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold6 and Z Flip6, according to the Korean publication The Elec. Samsung has exclusively used Snapdragon chips to power its foldable phones, so they’re fat. On the 6th generation foldables, the company will use a Snapdragon chipset once again.

Since the last couple of generations, Samsung’s in-house silicon has improved both performance and power efficiency, and its goal is to have a greater level of control over its smartphone business.

As a matter of fact, Exynos has always performed slightly or considerably worse than Snapdragon. Exynos appears to be catching up to Qualcomm at last. According to a recent report, the upcoming Exynos 2500 chipset will be more power efficient than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. While the new chipset is expected to debut with the S25 series, the current options for the 6th generation foldables are the Exynos 2400 and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

As a result of all the achievements, Samsung MX (the smartphone division) has decided to continue partnering with Qualcomm for foldable phones.

According to reports, Samsung is avoiding using the current Exynos 2400 chipset since it does not meet power efficiency requirements.
