Samsung may contribute more to Qualcomm’s smartphone business next year due to a new rumor floating around that next year’s Galaxy S24 family will launch with a Snapdragon SoC. It may be possible that the company is still developing an Exynos silicon, but given the setbacks that Samsung has witnessed in the past, it might not be reserved for its top-tier devices.
More information states that Samsung will want to reduce dependency on Qualcomm by using the Exynos 2400 in the Galaxy S24 series
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy was introduced for the Galaxy S23 range this year, and Samsung could retain the same strategy for 2024 with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The Qualcomm silicon running in the Galaxy S24 could operate at higher clock speeds, just like its predecessor, enabling the smartphones to perform better in certain tasks. However, not everyone agrees with @OreXda on Twitter, who is adamant that Samsung will refrain from using its Exynos chipsets in Galaxy-branded flagships.
Shortly after the main tweet, a debate sparked on the thread, talking about Samsung’s efforts to use the Exynos 2400 in the Galaxy S24 series. Apparently, the Korean giant is developing this SoC, but it is still unclear if it intends to use it in its premier family of smartphones for next year. Responding to the tweet was Quadrans Muralis, who believes that Samsung’s incentive in using the Exynos 2400 would be to negotiate better pricing from Qualcomm, as it would help the company steer clear from a Snapdragon-exclusive launch.
Galaxy S24 Series will never use Exynos.

OreXda seems to agree that Samsung is working on an Exynos 2400, but according to him, it will not be found in any Galaxy S24 model. Come to think of it, we have only reported about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 specifications leak, with absolutely no information on the Exynos 2400 yet, so unless anything concrete shows up in the coming months, our immediate assumption is that the Galaxy S24 family will arrive with a Snapdragon SoC.
Given the improvements seen in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, we are inclined to say that Samsung should do what is best for customers and stick with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy version of the chipset designed for Galaxy S24 models. The previous attempts have tarnished the company’s reputation, so unless it is absolutely confident in the abilities of its high-end Exynos variant, it should resume its partnership with Qualcomm.
