Will Galaxy S25 Feature a MediaTek Dimensity Chipset?

The South Korean Tech Company plans to release its Galaxy S25 series in January 2025. We may witness the regular model, the plus one, and an Ultra model.

While Samsung is known for using Qualcomm and Exynos chipsets for their flagship lineup, there is another addition coming soon concerning a mishap.

Samsung may use MediaTek Dimensity chipsets with their Galaxy S25 series

Yes, you assumed it right. Samsung is planning to use MediaTek chipsets, along with Qualcomm and Exynos. Since TSMC does not manufacture Exynos chipsets, the fans expect the company to provide Qualcomm chips. TSMC’s manufacturing architecture plays an important role in keeping the smartphone’s thermals in check.

As mentioned, this time, the team will also use MediaTek Dimensity chipsets with their upcoming Galaxy S25 series. Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, Exynos 2500, and Dimensity 9400 will likely be the upcoming Qualcomm’s, Samsung’s, and MediaTek’s latest and greatest SoCs.

It all depends on the company’s selection of which processor-based smartphone will be launched in which region.

Now, you will be in question as to why Samsung is opting for MediaTek chipsets, especially because of their premium offerings. It is important to note that this is not concluding and is currently a rumor; the final project may vary. According to IT tipster Panda Flash, he says “it’s a plan”.

Why Samsung is opting for MediaTek Dimensity chipsets?

The primary reason is Qualcomm’s price hike for the upcoming processor. The rumored price increment is not small; it will likely be quite expensive (about 25-30% compared to the previous generation) when generating for a mass market.

The price hike will reportedly result in the current flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC to cost approximately $200. The next-generation SoC will likely cost around $260 per quantity.

The secondary reason is Samsung’s clutter with their own upcoming Exynos 2500. The production speed for the processor is only about 40%, which should be 60% to start mass-producing the chipsets on a larger scale. The company will likely improve it by August 2024. If they achieve the target, there is a high chance that the team will use Exynos 2500 mostly.

Samsung has to boost the production speed for the Exynos 2500 if they care about the total expenditure. Calling out a series with three different chipsets based on region-specific will not be cost-effective. If Qualcomm’s price hike is real, expect the respective smartphones to come at a higher cost as well.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 and MediaTek Dimensity 9400 will be the most powerful smartphone chipsets, specifically because of TSMC’s manufacturing process. However, if Samsung wants to lead up there, they have to try negotiating with Qualcomm concerning MediaTek since those are opponents. At last, everyone here is making a business.

We assume that the Galaxy S25 series will majorly use Exynos 2500. What are your thoughts on this? How do you feel about Samsung’s decision to use MediaTek Dimensity chipsets? Do you think Qualcomm will hike their SoC prices? Let us know in the comments section below.
