Galaxy S25 and Watch7 to equip 3nm Samsung chipsets



Samsung has enhanced its 5nm process technology, which would be benefiting the upcoming Pixel 8 and Galaxy Watch6 devices. Samsung is expected to introduce Exynos 2400 based on 4nm this year, while rumors about its 3nm chipsets have started to appear.

Tipster @TheGalox_ claims that Samsung would introduce its first 3nm process-based smartphone processor in early 2025. Hopefully, the Exynos 2500, which could debut with the Galaxy S25 series will be manufactured by Samsung 3nm process technology.

Exynos 2500 & W930 to use 3nm process

Apart from this, the South Korean tech giant may also utilize the same fabrication process for its next-generation wearable chipset Exynos W930 (tentative name). The company is using a new GAA (Gate All Around) transistor architecture for these advanced semiconductors.

As Samsung Foundry is facing yield issues, it’s not possible to manufacture smartphone chipsets on the new 3nm process node. Hence, the OEM is currently supplying the initial production run to clients in other tech sectors, such as cryptocurrency mining.

Initially debuted with the Galaxy Watch4 lineup, Samsung’s Exynos W920 chip (2 ARM Cortex-A55 CPU cores & ARM Mali-G68 GPU) is manufactured by a 5nm process. The same chipset powered the Watch5 and will be continued with the upcoming Watch6 series this year but with an enhanced process.

It’s also possible that the company may have been wondering to deploy its new 3nm process to smartwatch chipsets before shifting to phones. Through this, it can prevent all kinds of risks of failure of the year’s most anticipated flagship smartphones.

Snapdragon for Galaxy

As reports about Exynos’ comeback are spreading heavily, Samsung will not entirely ditch the Snapdragon chipset. In Exynos time, the company shipped Qualcomm chip-powered Galaxy flagships in certain markets including the US, which will not change, at least for a few years.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy, which powers the S23 series is performing quite well, even defeating all rivals equipped with the standard version. Thanks to its collaboration with Qualcomm, Samsung managed to bring a custom chipset to the S23 lineup, which will be continued with Z Fold5 and Flip5.
