Samsung To Abandon Its Exynos 2300 SOC For Galaxy S23 And Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Coming

Published

on


Samsung electronics will likely forsake its smartphone processors in favor of Qualcomm Snapdragon chips, the most recent challenge to the company’s capacity to plan and make cutting-edge processors. A few examiners and industry insiders anticipate that for the upcoming Galaxy S23 series early next year, the company has chosen Taiwan’s TSMC’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 rather than Samsung’s Exynos 2300 new chip line. The finest within the central chip line for the Galaxy smartphones since 2011.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 vs Exynos 2300

Qualcomm will likely be the “sole processor provider” for the Galaxy S23 models due to the Exynos 2300’s silent execution for the Galaxy S23 series. No details about the Exynos 2300 are available compared to SD Gen 2.

The Exynos branded chips are outlined by a division called System LSI and made by Samsung Foundry. Still much better than the previous failed attempt of combining the two. Qualcomm has chosen TSMC over Samsung Electronics to produce its latest chipset after the disappointing results of the Exynos SoC by Samsung.

Samsung’s big problem in manufacturing has been its reduced production capacity, especially after using new technology based on the ultraviolet (EUV) wavelength range. i.e., the yield rate is the number of silicon wafers successfully processed into a mold, which is packaged into a semiconductor. The lower the output, the less product is produced. Semiconductor experts believe that meager yields can affect chip quality and manufacturing costs, as they indicate that a manufacturing process is having trouble making chips that match the customer’s design.

Problems with the previous devices using Exynos

Both the Galaxy S21 and S22 models experienced complaints of overheating and slower-than-expected processing speeds. The S21 series is powered by Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888, and the S22 by Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. If we go by benchmarking tools like Geekbench, Galaxy phones using Exynos show lower average processor speed scores than the same Galaxy model with a Snapdragon chip. 

The poor performance of  Exynos chips has recently led Samsung Electronics to increase the number of Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S models gradually. 

Strategy for The Future;

In response to recent setbacks, Samsung Electronics is trying to revamp its smartphone business and chipmaking. 

The tech giant also recently formed a dedicated team to improve the performance of a smartphone’s central processor, Task Force. 

Samsung Electronics’ smartphone business suggested that the company plans to produce the central processor exclusively for Galaxy models. Also, the Exynos chips are not explicitly customized for Galaxy as they are supplied to Chinese vendors.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Coming

Following along the lines, we can connect the dots, especially when Qualcomm has uncovered that it’ll hold its yearly occasion, the Snapdragon Summit 2022, from November 15 to November 17 in Hawaii. This event is where the company will showcase the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.

Galaxy S25 Ultra to Feature First 50MP Ultrawide Since Galaxy S10

Samsung Galaxy enthusiasts, especially those who are photography-addicted too, get ready for the biggest camera upgrade ever on the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra

Before even any official statement release or launch, dozens of leaks and rumors are blowing in the market regarding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to arrive in early 2025. Now the new report is hinting at a major camera upgrade. 

If the new report is to be believed, the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultra-wide camera. Samsung launched its Galaxy S10 series back in 2019, and from then to the recently launched Galaxy S24 series, none of them features a 50MP ultrawide camera yet. Fortunately, if this report comes true, then the Galaxy S25 Ultra will be the first Galaxy device with a higher resolution ultrawide since the sensor was introduced. 

This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who claims that the Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultrawide camera, and it will be the first Galaxy device with this high resolution since the sensor was introduced to the lineup initially with the Galaxy S10 series. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 12 MP ultrawide camera, and its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, also has a 12 MP ultrawide camera.

Apart from this, it was also reported recently that the Galaxy S25 Ultra could feature 8K recording across all rear cameras.

The Korean firm ‘Samsung’ is about to launch its next-generation foldable smartphone – Galaxy Z Fold 6, which is expected to bring an updated camera design to enhance the look. 

We are not completely two months away from the Galaxy Unpacked event that is reportedly held on July 10 in Paris. Even before any official revelation regarding the specs, design, and features of Galaxy Z Fold 6,  tipsters already heated the market with leaks and rumors. Now the new report says that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 could bring a new camera design. 

A tipster on X shared an image that showcases the rear cameras of the Galaxy Z Fold 6, which is immediately apparent that this is different from any rear camera housing we have ever seen on the Galaxy Z Fold family before. This hints that this time Samsung could introduce a fresh design for the foldable’s rear camera this year. 

The image has a Samsung Galaxy AI watermark which points out that it might be made changes, however, it’s best to wait for more confirmation before trusting this particular design detail since the brand has yet to reveal any official details. 

Recently, the list of Galaxy devices, including, Galaxy Z Fold 6, Galaxy Z Flip 6, Galaxy Watch 7, Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra, and Galaxy Ring has already been leaked which arrived at the next Galaxy Unpacked event which is supposed to be held in July 2024.

Samsung appears close to introducing its sixth-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6, in July at the Galaxy Unpacked Event. Now the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is spotted on the Geekbench database. Let’s take a closer look at the detailed information. 

Although the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is already spotted on the Geekbench database, Now, luckily, in development, its sibling’s forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 smartphone appeared on the Geekbench 6.3.0 benchmark database with the model number SM-F956U. 

The last letter ‘U’ in the model number points to the fact that this mode refers to a variant for the US market. It scored 1,964 points in the single-core round of the test and 6,619 points in the multi-core round. The listing reveals the existence of an octa-core processor with the codename pineapple, a 1+3+2+2 core configuration, and an Adreno 750 GPU. Apart from these, one chief core is clocked at 3.40 GHz, and the remaining three performance cores are at 3.15 GHz. 

This points out that Samsung could power the forthcoming Galaxy foldable with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3processor. The Geekbench database suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will arrive with 12GB of RAM and Android 14. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 already appeared on the 3C certification website, which suggested support for 25W fast charging, and now it is expected that this device will also visit other certification websites soon.
