After using homemade Exynos processors that were mostly disappointing, Samsung was finally able to ditch its own chips and equip its next smartphones only with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips.
Like every year, the 2022 Galaxy S22 smartphones used Exynos chips instead of Snapdragon in certain markets, including France in particular. Samsung’s choice to use multiple processors in smartphones that bear the same name often criticized by users, and in particular those of the markets entitled to Exynos fleas. In fact, it has been several years already Samsung’s processors are significantly less efficient than Qualcomm’s.
For example, the latest Exynos 2200 is less efficient than a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. This means, among other things, that the European Galaxy S22s are less interesting than the Galaxy S22s sold on the American market, which uses Qualcomm chips.
Samsung would only use Snapdragon chips in Galaxy S23
In a new tweet, famed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said: Qualcomm could become the sole supplier for Galaxy S23 chips, compared to 70% currently on the S22. Indeed, Samsung would have decided not to equip its future flagship smartphone with an Exynos 2300 processor, as it cannot compete with the next Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 to be unveiled by Qualcomm in November next year.
Samsung’s Galaxy S23s could therefore be considerably more economical than the current Galaxy S22s in the French market, as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chips of the new smartphones will benefit from TSMC’s advanced 4 nm engraving, currently used in the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 of the Xiaomi 12S, 12S Pro and 12S Ultra.
According to recent statements from leaker Ice Universe, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will highlight GPU performance, without forgetting to improve photo and CPU performance. However, the chip would above all be much more energy-efficient, and therefore less prone to overheating, the biggest fear for smartphones that came out at the beginning of this year. It is also expected that the autonomy of high-end devices that will use it is greatly improved.
