Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 to be powered by Snapdragon 888 chipset instead of in-house Exynos 2100
Looks like the episodes of leaks for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will not going to stop for now. Just recently, we found the 3C listing which disclosed the dual battery system of this foldable device, and now a new revelation just surfaced on Twitter.
Meanwhile, it was earlier speculated that the next-gen Galaxy Fold will be powered by Exynos 2100 but this new disclosure just turns the table towards the Qualcomm flagship. Therefore, the AMD Radeon graphics will also not be part of this device.
Why Galaxy Z Fold 3 featuring a Snapdragon processor instead of a more powerful in-house Exynos chipset?
There are many reasons that make Samsung putting a Snapdragon 888 processor instead of the Exynos 2100, but the one that is quite eminent is the performance. It is because the in-house chipset of the company features Mali GPU which is somehow not known for graphic-intense performance, especially for gaming, while the Qualcomm chipset has the Adreno GPU that can handle every game without dropping a single frame.
However, the Korean tech giant claims that its latest flagship chipset is better than its rival which we saw in the benchmarks of various platforms. But still, it projects a set-back image when compared to the top-notch Qualcomm processor. Therefore, this can be the reason for Samsung to go for Snapdragon 888 rather than Exynos 2100.
Lastly, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to sport a 6.21-inch cover display including a 7.55-inch foldable panel. While we could also see the One UI 3.5 in this device, set to launch somewhere in July 2021 alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 2.
