According to a source close that spoke to Korean publication TheElec, Samsung is once again betting on a single-chip strategy for its upcoming foldables, the Galaxy Z Fold6 and Z Flip6.

This report refutes earlier leaks suggesting Samsung is finally implementing the dual-chip strategy with its foldable handsets. However, it is quick to point out that the decision to go for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip instead of mixing it with the Exynos 2400 has nothing to do with performance concerns, and it has everything to do with cost-effectiveness.

Developing a device using two different platforms, in this case, the Exynos 2400 and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, requires more resources for both development and after-sales support. Samsung seems to have done the math and concluded that it won’t sell enough units to offset the added cost of going the dual-chip route.

That’s not to say Samsung is expecting poor sales. Tha Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip lineups are gaining momentum with each year, but relative popularity compared to the Galaxy S series is still low.

In addition, Roland Quandt shared a set of case renders showing the Galaxy Z Flip6 and Z Fold6 designs, which doesn’t add anything new to the already existing specs sheet, but he believes the case renders come from a reputable company further adding credibility to the images.
