Samsung "sorta" provides this

They sell some phones with their own Exynos SoC, not Qualcomm's, so it wouldn't be vulnerable to this. The problem is that those phones don't support US cellular very well, but it may be an option for some in Europe - you'd have to check the specs to see what LTE etc. bands it supports.

Of course, that doesn't guarantee that a similar or worse vulnerability isn't found in Exynos tomorrow, but at least the odds of a quick fix for it are higher.
