Samsung May Use Exynos Chip in Galaxy Z Flip 6, Breaking Tradition

Samsung's upcoming foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip 6, could mark a shift in the company's processor strategy. Rumors suggest that Samsung might equip the Z Flip 6 with its own Exynos chip instead of the usual Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm.

This news comes from tech insiders Revegnus and OreXDA, although Samsung hasn't officially confirmed anything yet. Traditionally, Samsung's foldable phones, like the recently released Z Flip5 and Fold5, have relied on Snapdragon processors for power.

Samsung Flip Phone Might Get New Chip:

If the rumors hold true, it would be a similar approach Samsung took with the Galaxy S24 series. In that case, the Exynos 2400 chip powered the S24 and S24+ in most regions outside the US, China, Japan, and Canada, where the Snapdragon version reigned.

This rumored switch to Exynos for the Z Flip 6 could be a cost-cutting measure for Samsung. However, it's important to note that the Exynos 2400 boasts improved performance compared to its predecessors.

Snapdragon for Fold, Exynos for Flip?

While the rumor specifically mentions the Z Flip 6, it's unclear if the same fate awaits its bigger sibling, the Galaxy Z Fold 6. Both phones are expected to launch sometime in July, with July 10th being a possible launch date.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip is currently rumored to be the processor of choice for both foldable devices. But if the Exynos rumors for the Z Flip 6 pan out, the European Fold 6 might also end up with the Exynos 2400 chip.

Uncertain Fate, But More Details Soon:

With the official launch still months away, the exact processor choices for the Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 remain uncertain. While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 might be the superior option, the Exynos 2400 offers a compelling alternative.

We can expect more details to surface as Samsung nears the official launch date. Stay tuned for further updates on these exciting foldable phones!
