A big name in the tech industry has given some details about the hardware that will be in Samsung’s next flagship phone. The Samsung Galaxy S23 will come out sometime next year. Like its predecessors, it is likely to be the best phone on the market in terms of price and features. Ming-Chi Kuo, who is known for giving accurate information about changes in the tech industry, just sent out a Tweet with a lot of information about the next Galaxy. The processor that the South Korean tech giant will use in its new device is at the heart of the leak.
There were already a lot of rumors about the chip Samsung was going to use in its new top-of-the-line phone. Apple’s decision to start making its own silicon and the huge improvements in performance that its M1 and M2 chips brought to the table caused a huge shakeup in the market, which Samsung plans to fight back against. Because of this, Kuo wrote that Qualcomm is likely to be the only processor maker for the Samsung Galaxy S23.
On Twitter, Kuo has made four important predictions. First, the analyst says that Qualcomm will be the “sole processor” for Samsung’s Galaxy S23, which is more than the 70 percent of Galaxy S22s that already use Qualcomm chips. He says that this is because of the “next flagship 5G chip, the SM8550 from TSMC 4nm.” Kuo goes on to say that the South Korean company isn’t using its own Exynos 2300 processor because it can’t compete with the SM8550 and that the new Snapdragon chip is better. He says that the fact that the SM8550 is “optimized for TSMC’s design rule” makes it more powerful and use less power. Lastly, the well-known analyst says that Qualcomm will gain “more market share in the high-end Android market in 2023” because of Samsung’s choice.
Analyst of the tech industry Kuo has a good name for leaking accurate information. Most of his high-profile leaks are about Apple’s products and come from people in the supply chain of the company. But the person who works in the field has also made predictions about Samsung, Meta, and other big tech companies. His past leaks have been so accurate that they were shocking. Websites like AppleTrack say he is right over 72% of the time. He isn’t always right, but most of the time it’s because he has bad information. Sometimes it depends on how flexible plans are during the design and early stages of production. Still, his predictions are taken very seriously by media outlets all over the world because of his reputation.
