Samsung is expected to add the Galaxy S25 lineup in the coming year, despite its expected release being approximately a year away. A rumour suggests that the Galaxy S25 series could exclusively adopt Samsung's in-house Exynos 2500 chip. 

According to tipster Connor (@OreXda) post on X (formerly Twitter) reported that Samsung's Galaxy S-series smartphones in 2025 might only use Exynos chipsets. Interestingly, the Galaxy Z series smartphones are rumoured to continue using Snapdragon SoCs exclusively, while the Galaxy A series devices could utilise a combination of MediaTek and Exynos chips. 

However, the rumour appears doubtful. Samsung recently entered into a multi-year agreement with Qualcomm concerning the utilisation of Snapdragon SoCs in its Galaxy flagship smartphones, starting with the Galaxy S24 series. This resulted in the customised "for Galaxy" chips seen in recent Samsung S-series devices, according to Gizmochina

According to this agreement, it is believable that at least a few more generations of Galaxy S series and Galaxy Z series smartphones will feature high-end Snapdragon processors.

Although initial performance tests suggest that Samsung's Exynos 2400 chip competes favourably with its Qualcomm counterpart, the Galaxy S25 series may include some models equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. 

Both the Exynos 2500 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chips, alongside the Galaxy S25 phones themselves, are still undergoing development. As such, information remains subject to change, so we cannot conclude it as the final product's specifications.
