It is expected that Samsung may go back to the way it chose application processors for its prior flagship, the Galaxy S24 series. Several sources reveal that the Exynos 2400 chipset from Samsung will be employed in the Galaxy S24 series in some selected regions, while the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 from Qualcomm will power up the S24 series in other markets. This can turn out to be a rumor, as it’s been a long time since Samsung employed the Exynos chipset. The firm also skipped the Exynos in the Galaxy S23 series. Samsung and Qualcomm may continue to work together and provide Snapdragon-powered devices more even if the Exynos 2400 does materialize.
Powered up with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the Galaxy S23 series has had some greater responses. The majority of users, particularly those who had only ever been able to purchase Samsung flagships powered by Exynos processors, had warmly greeted the news of the alliance with Qualcomm, which was theoretically expected to persist for a while. The fear behind the Exynos processor is the lower performance that sticks with the gadget. We can expect that there may be optimism that these performance concerns may ultimately be resolved by the new Exynos 2400 CPU, which is anticipated to launch with the Galaxy S24.
It is almost clear that the Exynos 2400 will take advantage of the most recent Arm CPU cores, keeping the chip on par with the competition. A 1+2+3+4 configuration with a total of 10 cores is said to be the CPU’s rumored configuration. The Arm Cortex-X4 processor, clocked at 3.1 GHz; two Cortex-A720 cores, clocked at 2.9 GHz; two more A720 cores, clocked at 2.6 GHz; and four power-efficient Cortex-A520 cores, clocked at 1.8 GHz, are all reportedly components of the Exynos 2400 CPU. The Exynos 2400 will only support 64-bit due to the transition to the newest Arm V9.2 cores.
The Xclipse 940, which has twice as many graphics compute units as the RDNA 2 implementation, is said to be included in the Exynos 2400. The chipset is said to come with enhancements in the Artificial intelligence field. The Exynos 5300 modem could be used for connectivity, which can provide download speeds of 10 Gbps and upload speeds of 3.87 Gbps and additionally includes two-way satellite communication and features included in the new 3GPP 5G version 18. Last but not least, the Exynos 2400 is said to feature ultra-fast UFS 4.0 memory and LPDDR5X RAM at up to 8.5 Gbps, as well as 320 MP imaging and 8K60 video compatibility with the image signal processor.
These are not features confirmed to hold up with the Galaxy S24 series’ Exynos SoC, and it is also unclear what manufacturing process will be employed. The firm upgraded its manufacturing facilities to the 4th generation 4nm node recently; this can be a hint that future Exynos 2400s may pick up this 4nm process.
- Exynos 2400 should use the last Core of the Arm CPU, the CPU would be configured with 10 cores in total (1+2+3+4)
- the CPU would consist of a single high-performance Arm Cortex-X4 clocked at 3.1 GHz, two Cortex-A720 cores at 2.9 GHz, two other A720s at 2.6 GHz and four energy-efficient Cortex-A520 cores clocked up to 1.8 GHz
- Exynos 2400 will only be 64 bit
- the GPU could be built on AMD’s most powerful RDNA 2 graphics architecture, called the Xclipse 940, capable of offering twice as many graphics computing units
- the new proprietary chipset should boast improvements in the field of artificial intelligence
- connectivity side could be used the Exynos 5300 modem announced at the beginning of the year, able to offer download speeds at 10 Gbps and upload speeds of 3.87 with some improvements such as a two-way satellite communication technology, new advanced carrier aggregation technologies, improved energy efficiency and other features in the new version 18 of 3GPP 5G
- Exynos 2400 should support UFS 4.0 memory, LPDDR5X RAM up to 8.5 Gbps, as well as 320MP imaging and 8K60 video support via image signal processor
