Samsung still wants Exynos 2500 in Galaxy S25, improving the yield

Samsung Galaxy S24 July 2024 update

Samsung reportedly planning to improve the Exynos 2500 yield for Galaxy S25 by the second half. We have recently learned that the company has ditched Exynos due to yield concerns. As a result, the S25 series was rumored to exclusively use Snapdragon chipsets.

According to ZDNet, Samsung is working to address yield concerns about the Exynos 2500 for the Galaxy S25 series. The company is trying hard to stay away from completely relying on Qualcomm for Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 in its next flagship smartphones.

Samsung’s System LSI division is busy preparing ways to improve yields. This phase will decide the future of Exynos in the Galaxy S25 series. If the yield improves, Exynos 2500 might come out and be utilized in Galaxy S25 and S25 Plus in most of the regions.

“With the lower-than-expected Exynos 2500 yield, Qualcomm may become the only mobile AP supplier for the Galaxy S25 series.” – Ming-Chi Kuo.

Samsung failed to achieve a double-digit Exynos 2500 yield in the first quarter. As a result, the project to supply engineering samples of the new chip until February was postponed. To proceed with mass production, Samsung has to achieve at least a 60% yield rate which looks difficult.

Under project Solomon, the Korean tech giant has been developing Exynos 2500 on its 3nm GAA technology. While its release is uncertain, the company is set to introduce Exynos W1000 with the Galaxy Watch 7 series, based on the same fabrication technology.

With the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung significantly reduced the share of Exynos chipsets. In 2023, the company had to go all Snapdragon due to massive dissatisfaction with Exynos in the S22 series. However, the Exynos SoC returned this year with Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus.
