Samsung is expected to launch its Galaxy S23 series phones in the first week of February according to the latest rumors and this might be the year where all models will launch with the same chipset globally. Rumors about an all-Snapdragon lineup of Galaxy S23 series phones have been going on for months and the latest earnings call from Qualcomm all but confirm these rumors are true.

During their Q4 earnings call Qualcomm CFO Akash Palkhiwala confirmed expectations for a strong second half of the March quarter (Q1) 2023 which likely coincides with the first months of sales for the Galaxy S23 series phones. He also confirmed Qualcomm has moved from a 75% share (of chipsets) in the Galaxy S22 series to a global share - meaning Qualcomm chipsets for all models of the S23 series.

All three Samsung Galaxy S23 series phones (S23, S23+ and S22 Ultra) have already passed through Geekbench exclusively with the alleged Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon confirmed a multiyear partnership with Samsung which will bring Snapdragon chipset to all premium Samsung Galaxy phones globally.

A report from last month still suggests an Exynos-powered Galaxy S23 series is not ruled out despite disappointment from in-house Exynos chips from the Samsung MX (Mobile eXperience) division.
