Samsung is set to equip its upcoming Galaxy Z Flip6 and Z Fold6 with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip, according to a report from The Elec. Earlier, there was talk of a split chipset approach, but the latest report contradicts this.

The decision to keep Qualcomm's chip for the two foldables comes down to factors like cost and Samsung's existing relationship with the chip maker. There is no concern about the performance of Samsung's own Exynos 2400 SoC, as stated in the report.

While Qualcomm has long been favored by many, Samsung's Exynos 2400 chip has been making a comeback, offering performance comparable to Snapdragon. However, for Samsung, the decision comes down to economics rather than performance.

The Elec sources suggest that for Samsung's dual-chip strategy to pay off, they need to sell a significant number of devices. However, current market trends indicate that sticking with a single chipset, specifically Snapdragon, is financially safer for Samsung.

The report also highlights the cost implications of using different chips in the same phone. With the Galaxy Z series still lagging behind the Galaxy S flagships in terms of shipments, using two chipsets would only increase costs, making the already expensive foldables even more expensive.

Considering these factors, it is likely that Samsung will limit itself to using different chipsets only when the folding shipments match those of its first-year flagships. This also means that the “For Galaxy” branding, which indicates Qualcomm's partnership with Samsung, will be present on these devices.

Both devices are slated for launch at Samsung's upcoming Unpacked event, which is expected to take place on July 10, 2024.
