Samsung Galaxy S23 series will all feature snapdragon chipsets. This is good news for all lovers of Samsung flagship smartphones. Especially for those who are living in regions that usually get the Exynos model (Europe, India, and Africa).
According to Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon, 75% of the S22 series were powered by the Snapdragon chip in an earnings call for the second quarter.

W]e were 75% on Galaxy S22 before the agreement. You should be thinking about we’re going to be much better than that on Galaxy S23 and beyond,” Qualcomm’s partnership with Samsung “expands beyond Galaxy smartphones to include Galaxy books, Windows PCs, Galaxy tablets, and future extended reality devices and other devices.”Qualcomm CEO- Amon
So, does this mean an end to the Samsung in-house Exynos chipset? No, rather Samsung needs a couple of years to restructure its flagship chipsets. While in the meantime, the Korean tech company will focus its Exynos chips on other form factors such as wearables. The tech company will also continue to use the Exynos chips on entry-level and mid-range devices. Only the Galaxy flagship is exempted for now. Starting with the Samsung Galaxy S23 series next year.
