A rumor has surfaced that Samsung is designing its own custom chipset for the 2025 Galaxy S series. The new rumor cited by South Korean publication Inews24 and trusted insider IceUniverse suggests that Samsung officials are not happy with the backlash from the Galaxy S22 series GOS scandal as well as insufficient performances and poor thermal management of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200 chipsets. So a new approach is being discussed similar to what Apple is doing with its chipsets of the A series with the ultimate goal of having better optimized devices.

Samsung has also released a new firmware update for the Galaxy S22 line of devices. It includes several unnamed security fixes, as well as “general feature stability” improvements.
