Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 to Exclusively Feature Snapdragon Processors: Report

The South Korean technology conglomerate was rumored to follow this dual-chip strategy for its upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6. However, a new report contradicts the claim and suggests that Samsung will use Qualcomm’s latest chipset in its next-generation foldable phones.

Korean publication The Elec states that Samsung will exclusively use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processors for its upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6. The chipset will reportedly have a “For Galaxy” tag like current and older generation foldables and Galaxy S series. Previously, the upcoming phones were said to come with Exynos chips in some regions.

Samsung’s sixth-generation Galaxy Z Fold series is reportedly designed based on Qualcomm’s processor from the start and adding another processor could increase the cost. The report states that the brand preferred a single-chip strategy after considering “cost control” and “efficiency”. “Only when foldable phones ship as many units as the S series” would it be beneficial for Samsung to include Exynos, claims the report. Since its inception, Samsung has exclusively used Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor on its foldable phones.

Samsung is expected to hold its second unpacked event of 2024 on July 10 to launch the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6. We have already heard rumors about the phone’s specifications. The flip-style phone is said to feature a 120Hz refresh rate cover display. It could come in 8GB and a 12GB RAM variant alongside 256GB and 512GB storage options. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 could get a Titanium frame and is said to stick with 25W charging.
