Samsung will exclusively use Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processors for its upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6 foldable phones, TheElec has learned.

The tech giant has only used Qualcomm’s application processor on its foldable phones up to now and this will be the case again for the new phones as well, sources said.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 was unveiled in October last year and the US chip giant touted its on-device AI feature.

Samsung adds the moniker For Galaxy on the Snapdragon it procures from Qualcomm, to highlight their ties.

Samsung Mobile Experience Business, its smartphone business unit, considered its relationship with Qualcomm and cost control in continuing to use the Snapdragon series only for its foldable phones, the sources said.

This is not due to any performance issues of Samsung System LSI’s Exynos 2400, which was recently used in Galaxy S24 smartphones, but for efficiency, they said.

The Z series was designed from the start based on Qualcomm’s processor. Adding another processor will just increase the cost when foldable phones are still considered costly.

Only when foldable phones ship as many units as the S series will it be beneficial for Samsung to add another processor supplier.

Meanwhile, Samsung is planning to unveil the new phones at Galaxy Unpacked to be held in Paris on July 10.
