After the rather groaning start of the European S22s, as well as Samsung’s game optimization service’s derision, at some point the manufacturer, looking inward or under social pressure, decided to drop the in-house developed Exynos chip for its next flagship devices and to sell all its bendable and non-bendable flagships with Qualcomm chips. So it could be that the Galaxy S23 family is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chip with a slightly shifted clock, and the Exynos 2200 did not receive a sequel, and there were rumors that it would not.
Thank you very much for the S23 family, it works well with a Qualcomm chip [+]
These hardware are not developed by Samsung’s mobile, but by its semiconductor business, and nowhere near as closely coordinated as Apple, so the mobile division of the Korean manufacturer started building its own hardware development team, and the other day it contracted the highly skilled former vice president of Qualcomm, Benny Katibiant. Let’s say he starts at Samsung’s research center in Austin, and his expertise can be used in self-driving systems, so it is not certain that he will also take part in the development of mobile chips, but the company will not tie this up our noses. In any case, it seems that the manufacturer spends huge sums on research and development on all fronts.
Not many people want an Exynos chip after last year’s problems, but these can be fixed (source: Samsung) [+]
In the meantime, as if spy information is coming from a parallel universe, new exynosos rumors are heard. Ice Universe heard from a reliable source that the Exynos 2400 is being made at Samsung’s semiconductor division, with one Cortex-X4, two higher and three lower frequency Cortex-A720, and four Cortex-A520 processor cores. This would mean a total of ten cores instead of the usual eight, and the GPU could also have ten cores. However, it is telling that there are no official Cortex-X4 processor cores yet, this is expected to be announced by ARM this year, and the source has not even heard of Exynos 2300. That is, if the information is authentic, it could be a card due at the end of one year or the beginning of next year. At the same time, the Exynos 2300 has also been discussed in connection with a possible Galaxy S22 FE and Tab S8 FE, but for now nothing has come of these, and the S23 thanks you, it is fine with Snapdragon.
