Rumors about the Galaxy S25 series have started to pour in, but none of them compares to this one. According to The Financial News, a South Korean publication, Samsung is considering launching the Galaxy S25 with not one, not two, but three different processors. “There is a talk that Samsung electronics is considering installing not only Snapdragon 8 4th generation and Exynos 2500 in the Galaxy S25 series but also Taiwan’s MediaTek Dimensity chip,” the translated post reads.

Samsung Has Featured Qualcomm And Exynos Processors On The Flagship Series

For some context, let’s talk briefly about the three processors in the picture. First and foremost, there’s the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC, which will arrive later this year at the October Snapdragon Summit. Like last year, it will be the company’s most powerful mobile platform, featuring top-tier flagships from manufacturers like Samsung, OnePlus, Xiaomi, etc.

Now, the problem with the upcoming processor could be its cost, as it could to be 20 to 30 percent more expensive than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, which could increase the price of the smartphones.

Then there’s the Exynos 2500 SoC, which will carry on Samsung’s ambition to produce in-house chips. It will take the baton from the Exynos 2400 SoC in the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus (sold in Asia). The processor is could run on the company’s 3nm fabrication technology.

However, The Galaxy S25 Could Ship With A Dimensity 9300 Plus Or 9400 SoC

MediaTek Dimensity 9300+ SoC

However, reports also suggest that Samsung is having complications with the yield rate and might not be able to read the chip in time for the Galaxy S25 series. As mentioned in the report, the company has hit a yield rate of over 40 percent, but it has to increase it to 60 percent before August.

The third processor in question, an unknown MediaTek chip, could either be the Dimensity 9300 Plus SoC or the unreleased Dimensity 9400 SoC, which will also debut later this year. While the former is based on a 4nm fabrication process, the latter should come with several improvements in efficiency, perhaps even a 3nm technology.

Anyways, both the current and the upcoming models produce flagship-tier performance, but given MediaTek’s urge to expand, they are more affordable for manufacturers than the Snapdragon chips. Hence, if the Samsung processors aren’t ready in time, the company could switch to MediaTek chips for the markets that previously got the Exynos 2400-powered Galaxy S24.

Three Different Processors On A Lineup: Wise Or Chaotic?

Hence, if any model in the Galaxy S25 series features a Dimensity chipset, it has to be the Dimensity 9300 Plus or the Dimensity 9400 SoC. It’s important to mention here that the Dimensity chipset may power the Galaxy S25 in some regions. However, this would lead to a rather chaotic lineup that is powered by three different processors in different parts of the world, especially since all three will provide different performances.

Hence, we think that the rumors about the Galaxy S25 series featuring a Dimensity chipset are at a very nascent stage, and the only way to find out more details is to wait for more information to surface. It is worth mentioning that notable analyst Min-Chi Kuo recently mentioned that Qualcomm will be the only processor supplier for the entire Galaxy S25 series. Since there’s no overlap in the rumors, it’s tough to comment on what Samsung could do with the S25 series at this moment.
