Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus can be equipped with Exynos chipset 9810 supports CDMA.
According to tradition, the flagship Samsung Galaxy S smartphones come in the options on the Exynos and Snapdragon chipsets. And the main reason for the use of the latter lies in the fact that Qualcomm owns most of the CDMA technology, used by many operators in the world.
But, insiders believe that the next flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be based on the chipset Exynos 9810 with support for CDMA networks. This means that Samsung and Qualcomm have reached an agreement on the transfer to the Koreans of the relevant patents. And now Samsung will not only release a SoC with support for CDMA for their needs, but also to sell these chipsets to third-party manufacturers.
Moreover, the release of the Exynos 9810 with support for CDMA may be the reason for abandoning the use of platforms Qualcomm in the flagship smartphone Galaxy S. And Samsung Galaxy S9 may appear only on the platform Exynos 9810.
This, incidentally, may explain the rumors that Qualcomm decided to refuse the services of Samsung in designing its next flagship Snapdragon chipset 845, turn it responsible occupation TSMC.
However, all these changes will happen only next year. And informants confirmed that the new phablet Samsung Galaxy Note 8, as planned, will be based on the chipset Snapdragon 836. And the latter, as you may remember, is an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 835.
