Samsung has been launching two variants of its Samsung Galaxy S series smartphones every year for a while now. One of these smartphones is usually powered by Exynos which is a processor built by Samsung itself. The other variant of the smartphone which is released only in the US uses a Snapdragon processor. However, with the introduction of the new Galaxy S22 series things might change a little.
The Speculations Around the Processor for Galaxy S22 Series
The speculations were being built around Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S22 series that the device may not feature an Exynos processor at all and Samsung may go for the processor from Qualcomm instead which would be Snapdragon 898. But these speculations were dismissed recently as the sources confirmed that the handset would come with an Exynos version as well for certain parts of the world.
The above sources sit in line with one of the Galaxy Club’s reports. According to their report, countries from Africa and Asia can expect to see Snapdragon 898 chips with Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 ultra for the first time. The US will continue to receive the same processor as well. The Exynos chips would be used in the handsets launched in Korea and the rest of the globe. Since the announcement suggests that Asian countries could witness Snapdragon 898, there’s a probability that the same could be introduced in India as well.
The introduction of Qualcomm processors on such a large scale comes as good news for those who are fans of the processor. The Snapdragon processors have always been better than the Exynos chip variants when it comes to overall performance, battery life, or thermal control.
The one probable downside for the Snapdragon users could be that Exynos 2200 is expected to integrate with AMD GPU which will make it possible for the processor to feature raytracing support for the first time ever. Although it is still difficult to speculate whether Exynos 2200 could give better performance than its competitor Snapdragon, the former is bound to get a massive upgrade from its previous version with Mali GPUs.
