One month has passed since the presentation of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the first mobile phone of the South Korean company, but even at this point there are still doubts about the most innovative terminal presented by the company during this first half of 2019. One of the more extended, refers to the processor with which the phone will land in the different markets of the world. After all, Samsung is accustomed to launching its star terminals with Qualcomm Snapdragon processor in the United States, China and other specific regions, and with its counterpart Exynos in the rest of the world.
But everything points to the fact that with the Galaxy Fold, Samsung will not repeat this formula. As you have been able to discover XDA-Developers checking the code inside the firmware belonging to Samsung's new smartphone, the Galaxy Fold would be sold with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor around the world.

While there are still a few weeks until the launch of the Galaxy Fold in most regions where it will be available, the firmware of the device "SM-F900U" -Galaxy Fold- has already appeared on the network, and in the meantime has cleared some of the doubts that were still floating since Samsung presented the terminal to the world at the end of last February.
As it has been confirmed, the international version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold will arrive with the model number SM-F900F. And precisely in the file build.prop of this variant, appears the line of code that confirms that the Galaxy Fold international, like the model oriented to the American market, will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor -SM8150-.

So far, on the official Galaxy Fold website within the Samsung website, the firm did not refer to the terminal's processor. However, in the press release published on the day of its release, Samsung indicates that the Galaxy Fold has an Octa-Core processor of 64 bits and 7 nanometers, which did not clear too much the doubts about whether it was the Exynos 9820 of the Galaxy S10 and S10 +, or the Qualcomm platform. Now, thanks to the firmware, I am afraid that these doubts are resolved.
