Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 could be used by Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series globally.

It’s possible that the Exynos processor won’t be offered in Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series. According to reports, the business intends to globally distribute its 2023 flagship models with Qualcomm’s next-generation Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. Exynos 2300, the forthcoming in-house flagship chipset from the Korean company, has been eliminated due to poor performance. According to TF International Securities’ claims industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, it cannot compete with Qualcomm’s solution in every way.

Samsung has sold its flagship smartphones in two CPU variations over the previous few years, depending on the market. Customers in the USA and China typically received Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets, while customers in the majority of other nations received the firm’s own Exynos CPUs. This year, it expanded the Snapdragon family to include India with the Galaxy S22 series.

As Qualcomm chipsets were available in the top three smartphone markets, the percentage of Exynos processors on Galaxy S22 phones decreased to just under 30%. And given that the Galaxy S23 range will have Snapdragon CPUs everywhere starting in 2019, that number may be zero.

Advertisement NOT ENOUGH FOR THE GALAXY S23 SERIES IS THE EXYNOS 2300 The performance difference between the Exynos 2300 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is what motivated Samsung to make this choice, as was previously stated. Unfortunately, this is neither unusual nor novel. Over the years, this gap has received extensive documentation. Samsung received harsh criticism since Snapdragon-powered Galaxy flagships consistently beat their Exynos-powered brethren.

This year, the performance difference between the Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 was significantly reduced, if not nonexistent. This is clear from the fact that both chipsets were produced by Samsung Foundry. The historical production of Qualcomm’s chips was handled by TSMC. History has shown that the fabrication technology used by Taiwan’s chipmakers is superior to Samsung’s.

As of right now, Qualcomm is turning to TSMC to produce the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Early reports indicate that it will perform and use power substantially better than Samsung’s own Exynos 2300. For Samsung to continue using both processors in the Galaxy S23 series, the disparity is too great. The South Korean giant wouldn’t take a chance on losing customers because of subpar products. Therefore, it would exclusively use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in its upcoming flagship models.

SNAPDRAGON 8 GEN 2 AND EXYNOS 2300 ARE 4NM CHIPS It’s important to note that the Exynos 2300 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipsets are both 4nm chipsets, much as earlier solutions. Yes, Samsung has started mass producing 3nm CPUs, and later this year, TSMC will join its South Korean rival in producing the next-generation chips. However, 3nm mobile processors won’t likely be available until the following year. High-performance computing systems will be powered by the first 3nm chips from Samsung. The business intends to create unique 3nm chips in the future for its flagship handsets.
