Samsung turns to MediaTek and leaves Exynos?

Samsung will launch the Galaxy S22 FE with the MediaTek 9000 chipset and with that move it is leaving Exynos.

We believe that you have already heard somewhere that Samsung is considering switching to MediaTek / Dimensity chipsets. Although we personally did not believe in this (we did not even want to believe it) it seems more and more and it is likely that this is the scenario that is really coming.

In the last two years, MediaTek has been recording top sales results and results that are top in the way of working and everyday use of smartphones.

Samsung certainly sees this, but it also listens to the market, it listens to its users who are criticized when it comes to Samsung Galaxy models powered by Exynos chipset. Although Exynos is a product of Samsung, and with that in mind, Samsung is recording savings in the production process and the purchase of raw materials, it seems that they are not doing as well as the “champions” in the production of screens.

As we said, Samsung has noticed the success of the MediaTek company, which is here thanks to Dimensity chipsets. This shouldn’t be some “wow” news now and leave us all breathless for a reason because Samsung already uses MediaTek Dimensity chipsets in its individual Galaxy A (Galaxy M) models.


The rumor is that the Galaxy S series will also take this practice.

The Galaxy S22 FE could (once it hits the market) be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity chipset and thus roll out (stop using) the Exynos chipset. Another “plus” in favor of MediaTek Dimensity chipsets is the good price-quality ratio, which is extremely acceptable and attractive to Samsung.

Rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy S22 FE will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset made on a 4nm manufacturing process. In terms of graphics, the Samsung Galaxy S22 FE and MediaTek Dimensity 9000 will have the Mali-G710 (10 cores).

If it really turns out to be correct and the Galaxy S22 FE with the MediaTek Dimensity chipset appears on the market, the question arises as to what Samsung will do with the Exynos models. It is quite unquestionable how Samsung will continue to develop its chipset line but the purpose will be found in some other Samsung smart devices.

On the other hand, this raises additional questions, such as whether the Galaxy S24 models will use Dimensity chipsets in the global version (which would mean that Samsung will also say goodbye to the Snapdragon model), so far we really do not know the answer.

That is, we do not want to state or say anything in advance so that it would not prove inaccurate and wrong later. For now, it is known (it is known) that the Samsung Galaxy S22 FE will stop using Exynos and switch to the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset.
