Samsung may make an interesting choice regarding the processor in the Galaxy S25 series

Samsung Galaxy S25 is among the Android phones expected to meet users in the first days of 2025. The South Korean company traditionally uses top-end processors in its Galaxy S series flagships. It is claimed that Samsung, which has included its own Exynos processors and Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon processors so far, will also add MediaTek to the list in the S25.

According to the news in South Korea, Samsung is more likely to choose the Exynos 2500 processor in the Galaxy S25 than before. However, while it is noted that this is related to the available chip stock, it is said that Exynos’ situation may also help Samsung in price negotiations with Qualcomm.

According to the news, the price of Qualcomm’s current Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is around $190-200. It is stated that Qualcomm may increase the price of Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, which will be introduced in October, by up to 30 percent and possibly to $ 260. For this reason, Samsung is also considering alternatives such as Exynos 2500 SoC and MediaTek Dimensity options.

Can Samsung really turn to a MediaTek processor in the Galaxy S25 series?

The report does not cite a clear source for the Dimensity rumor. Therefore, it is useful to approach this claim with caution. Although no information is given about which Dimensity processor will be preferred, it is not difficult to predict that Samsung will follow the flagship path again.

Choosing a processor from MediaTek would be a big break from tradition for the flagship Galaxy S series, which has traditionally stuck to Qualcomm and Exynos options. But this competition will be beneficial to customers in the long run, as it will help keep the prices of flagship phones relatively stable, even if certain component manufacturers continue to raise prices in the future. Still, it is best to be cautious about such news about the Galaxy S25 series.
