However, as I understand it, the SNR will be the same because it's the same piece of silicon wafer.

Not so, because we are considering the case where we are capturing the same image on a large sensor, with lots of photons, or on a small chunk of sensor with proportionally fewer photons. You’d need a proportionally smaller focal length lens to get the same angle of view of course.
