The media has been debating which chipset Samsung will use for the Galaxy S25 series. There is a rumour that the lineup will feature the Exynos 2500 chip exclusively. Samsung may have to use both Exynos and Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chips again because of low Exynos yields, even though the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 may be more expensive.

According to a new, surprising rumour, a third chip brand might be in the mix. The Financial News reports that Samsung may adopt a three-chip strategy for the Galaxy S25 for the first time. According to the report, Samsung is considering not just the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 and Exynos 2500 for the Galaxy S25, but also a MediaTek Dimensity chip.

Samsung’s inclusion of MediaTek may help it balance power and prevent price increases for its smartphones. Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is expected to be 25-30% more expensive than Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

It is unclear which regions will get which chips. There might be a few select areas that will get the MediaTek-powered Galaxy S25, like China, while the rest of the world will stick to Exynos-Qualcomm.

You should take this rumour with a grain of salt. This claim is not supported by any concrete evidence yet, and the Galaxy S25 has yet to be officially announced.
