No more Qualcomm chips for Samsung smartphones?

February 1, 2015

The Galaxy S6 will use Samsung’s own Exynos processor instead.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 might be powering the new LG G Flex 2 and while it seems all other smartphone manufacturers will be using the same chip, one big smartphone maker might be passing on and will use their own processors instead.

Samsung, one of the biggest smartphone manufacturers, has somehow been confirmed by Qualcomm itself that it is passing on using their current flagship CPU, the Snapdragon 810. It wasn’t directly mentioned that it was Samsung who was the company that wouldn’t use their processors, but based on the recent rumors floating online, it somehow points to the same issue.

Samsung will then use their own line of Eynos processors to power the Galaxy S6, which is rumored to be released this year at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Eynos and Snapdragon are usually at par in terms of performance benchmarks in the past, and with hungry Android users clamoring for more powerful devices, it is up to Samsung (and even Qualcomm) to deliver the best performance their CPUs can offer.
