Samsung may continue with Qualcomm processors for the Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Flip foldable devices in 2024. This is contrary to earlier reports that said Samsung would use its own Exynos chip in its next-generation foldables in some regions, similar to the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus models. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 are reported to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 globally.

Samsung has often resorted to a dual chip strategy with its flagship products. For example, the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus smartphones were launched with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in select markets including the US, but the same smartphones had Exynos chips in select regions including India. Earlier, it was reported that Samsung may adopt a similar strategy for its upcoming foldable smartphones.

The previous-generation Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 were also powered by the top Qualcomm chips available everywhere and the next-generation models are expected to do the same.

Although Exynos-powered devices are generally considered to be at par with Qualcomm chips-powered devices, the former chip is often criticised for performance and thermals in comparison. According to the report, the Galaxy Z-series has been designed around Qualcomm processors since the first-generation model, and adding another processor option could further increase the cost of the foldable smartphone series which is already considered expensive.

The report also states that Samsung may offer multiple chip options for the Galaxy Z-series foldable devices after narrowing the gap to the Galaxy S-series flagships in terms of shipments.

The next-generation Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip are expected to be launched along with the upcoming Galaxy Ring and Galaxy Watch 7 series at the next Galaxy Unpacked event – ​​possibly in July.
