Qualcomm Snapdragon to power almost half of Galaxy S22 units

18 November 2021 0

Qualcomm has made it official that its Snapdragon chipsets will power almost half of the Galaxy S-series devices next year. The announcement was made by Cristiano Amon, CEO of Qualcomm, during the company's Investor Day conference. He was on the stage to talk about future goals for the company and he mentioned Samsung while talking about smartphones.

The slide on the stage showed that about 40% to 50% of Galaxy S-series phones will feature Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. Amon did not go into details but it is safe to assume that a significant portion of that figure will be related to the Galaxy S22 lineup. This is because it will be the 2022 flagship offering from the South Korean tech giant. It is also rumored to launch Galaxy S21 FE next year but that will likely account for only a small portion of overall sales.

It is important to note that Qualcomm is all set to debut its next-gen flagship processor, presumably called Snapdragon 898, next month. It is the processor that will be seen in flagships released by different brands like Honor, Oppo, Xiaomi, Motorola, OnePlus, and Vivo. However, the market share figures for these OEMs are currently unknown.

The latest announcement does corroborate previous reports of Samsung expanding Snapdragon Galaxy S22 models to more regions. These models were limited to the United States and Chinese markets so far but going forwards, it seems like the story will be different. One of the reasons for this new decision is related to the below-par Exynos 2200 yield. The flagship is tipped to get official on February 4th and we should hear more details in the coming weeks.
