Samsung's next generation of folding screen smartphones, Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 will use Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus processor.
Both chipsets used on the Galaxy S22 series, the Exynos 2200 and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, get quite hot, resulting in poorer gaming performance and battery life. This problem also occurs with most other Android 2022 flagship phones. However, Samsung's upcoming foldable smartphones may not have those problems anymore.
According to reputable leak expert @IceUniverse, Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 will use Snapdragon 8 Gen1 Plus chipset. Although Qualcomm has yet to announce this processor, industry sources say it will be manufactured based on TSMC's 4nm process, which will save more battery than Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which manufactured using Samsung Foundry's 4nm process.
TSMC's semiconductor chip manufacturing technology is always better than Samsung Foundry. It's no surprise that Apple has chosen TSMC exclusively to produce its A-series and M-series chipsets over the past few years. Fed up with the low output Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 made by Samsung, the US chip company looks like it will switch to TSMC's 4nm process for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset.
While this is a disappointment for Samsung Foundry, it's great news for Samsung's mobile experience division (MX - Mobile Experience). We can fully expect the arrival of Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 with better performance and longer battery life than the Galaxy S22 series and current generation foldable phones. in.
