It has been leaked that the Samsung Galaxy S23 series will be released on February 1 and is expected to be equipped with a special version of the latest Snapdragon chipset.
For years, Samsung’s flagship smartphones have been divided into two camps. In the U.S. and other major markets, Samsung Galaxy devices run Qualcomm Snapdragon chips. But in other markets, including Europe, they have long used Samsung’s own Exynos chips, and there is a gap in performance.
It is reported that Samsung and Qualcomm signed an agreement last year, the first public hint that the rumors about the Galaxy S23 series using Snapdragon chipsets worldwide were true, and there was more evidence at the time that some Galaxy S23 models were being used. It was found that a custom version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip was used, with a higher frequency.
According to documents reviewed by 9to5Google, the custom Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 used in Samsung’s Galaxy S23 devices will be called the “Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC for Galaxy.” The chip will have a CPU frequency of up to 3.36GHz, while Qualcomm’s main version chip typically runs its main X3 core at 3.2GHz.
Samsung’s custom version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is expected to carry essentially the same feature set as the chip used in the OnePlus 11 and other Android flagship devices but optimized for Samsung phones.
There were also rumors that the chip was manufactured by Samsung’s foundry rather than TSMC, but the original leaker of that information has since retracted that claim. The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is now open for pre-orders, and pre-orders can give you up to an additional $100.
