Samsung Galaxy S24 series and the Galaxy S23 FE will feature new Exynos hardware, claims a new report by Pocket-lint. To recall, the Galaxy S22 series debuted last year was made available in Snapdragon and Exynos chipset variants depending on the market.

As per the new report, the next-generation flagship phones are expected to feature Exynos hardware.
