- It is believed that the power of MediaTek could come in some Galaxy S22 FE and Galaxy S23 models.
Samsung usually sticks with Qualcomm and in-house Exynos Silicon for its flagship phones, but it is also increasingly using MediaTek chipsets in its budget devices. Now, it looks like the company could use a MediaTek chipset in its next flagship release.
Business Korea The report states that Samsung is considering using an unnamed MediaTek chipset on the Galaxy S22 FE and some Galaxy S23 units. More specifically, the outlet claims that MediaTek Silicon will power almost half of all Galaxy S22 FE units in Asia, as well as Galaxy S23 devices.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. However, the outlet claims that Exynos will lose more ground in the silicon chipset market, suggesting that a Mediatek variant could replace Exynos power in some areas.
Would you buy a MediaTek-powered Samsung flagship?
This is not the first time that Samsung has used more than two SoC providers in its flagship, having previously done so for the 2011 Galaxy S2 which used Exynos, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments chipsets.
There is no word on the MediaTek chipset that could potentially be used in the Galaxy S22 FE, although previous rumors have suggested that Samsung may be adopting the Dimension 9000 in some capacity. It’s now the company’s latest flagship SoC, and it’s still the firm’s most ambitious. Preliminary reviews indicate that it is a true competitor to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon flagship Silicon, although without mmWave support.
