Samsung is scheduled to release its flagship Galaxy S21 in the spring of 2021 and use the latest Qualcomm SnapDragon 875 mobile platform. Recently, however, it has been rumoured that the South Korean electronics giant will use qualms, the Qualcomm SnapSnapdragon 865 SoC, on the Galaxy S21, to drive down the price of the smartphone. Although it is generally accepted that this is unlikely to happen, themedia have been very careful to analyze the situation.
Rumor has it that the SnapDragon 875 SoC costs as much as $250, while the SnapSnapdragon 865 costs as little as $150. At the same time, the Galaxy S21 offers more use of its own Exynos 1000 series chipset and is available in more market areas.
Samsung is also offering Galaxy S-Series smartphones based on both Exynos and SnapDragon, which are only deliberately divided depending on the sales area. It remains to be seen whether the Galaxy S21 will follow the Galaxy S20’s SnapSnapdragon 865 SoC.
