1/5 In the race for artificial intelligence supremacy among flagship smartphones, Apple appears to be gearing up to outshine its rivals, particularly the Samsung Galaxy S24 and Google Pixel 8 series. Reports from Taiwanese site Economic Daily News, suggest that the upcoming iPhone 16 line will be equipped with an A18 chipset boasting a Neural Engine with significantly more cores than its predecessor, the A17 Pro used in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Increasing the number of cores in the Neural Engine aligns with Apple's strategy to enhance its AI capabilities significantly. While the exact core count for the A18's Neural Engine remains undisclosed, the A17 Pro featured 16 cores, implying a noteworthy advancement in AI processing for the iPhone 16 series, Techradar reported.  (AP)

While this leak should be taken with caution, expectations are high for the A18 to deliver significantly improved AI capabilities. (HT Tech)

5/5 There's speculation about whether all iPhone 16 models will feature the A18 chipset. Apple has traditionally reserved its latest chipsets for the Pro models. Furthermore, rumors suggest that certain advanced AI features may be exclusive to the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, potentially leaving the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus with a less powerful chipset.

In January 2024, we experienced the new Samsung Galaxy S24 series with advanced AI features and a mix of Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and Exynos 2400 chipsets but no major price hike was introduced except for the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Now, with Galaxy S25, we may experience a major price increase due to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 price. The upcoming snapdragon chipset may have a major impact on the price of the flagship smartphone. Know more about the Samsung Galaxy S25 prices.

Reasons for Samsung Galaxy S25 price hike

A tipster who goes by the name of digital chat station shared a post on the Chinese social media platform Weibo, claiming that the price of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset with model number SM8750 will significantly increase this year. Therefore, flagship smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S25 series or the OnePlus 13 may introduce increased pricing for their high-end models. The tipster also highlighted that due to increased chipset pricing, smartphone brands may also consider discarding the development for their Pro flagship phone.

As of now, it is unclear whether the smartphone companies will affect consumer pricing or they will consider sacrificing changes in other aspects of smartphones such as cameras to maintain the pricing of their flagship smartphones. This may occur in a way that we may not see significant changes or upgrades in the camera, display, design, etc. Toms's Guide report also highlights that it is possible that companies may use the current Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset for their next year's smartphone to maintain affordability.

On the other hand, Samsung is working on the latest Exynos 2500 chipset which will be more powerful than the current Exynos 2400. With great performance response for Galaxy S24 with Exynos 2400, it is possible that Samsung may include its in-house chipset with advanced capabilities in its upcoming Galaxy S25 series.

However, as of now, it is unsure how much the price will be increased for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset. Therefore, we must wait and see how the upcoming chipset will affect the pricing of next year's flagship smartphones.
