AMD-powered Exynos chips could be coming to Galaxy A series


Last updated: September 8th, 2021 at 17:47 UTC+02:00

The next-gen Exynos 2200 chipset won’t be the only Samsung SoC to utilize an AMD graphics chip based on the RDNA 2 architecture. At least not according to a recent rumor claiming that Samsung has another AMD-powered Exynos chipset in the works for the mid-range Galaxy A lineup.

The name is unknown, but regardless, the rumor suggests that there will be two versions of the same mid-range Exynos chip. One will have two compute units and be aimed at the mid-range Galaxy A family of devices, and the other will boast four compute units for improved performance in the upper-mid-range segment.

The latter AMD Exynos chipset model will be employed by at least two smartphone OEMs from China, claims the source, and this sort of falls in line with previous reports of OPPO and Xiaomi eyeing the Exynos 2200 SoC for some of their future phones.

Galaxy A53 and A73 would be prime contenders for AMD Exynos SoCs

The source didn’t mention any specific Galaxy A model that could end up employing AMD graphics in the future. However, if Samsung does indeed plan on following this strategy, then the Galaxy A53 and A73 would be prime contenders.

These two phones have yet to be announced, but it’s logical to assume that they will, eventually, given their lineage. The Galaxy A5x is one of the most flourishing smartphones series, and both the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 have redefined the mid-range segment earlier this year — all thanks to additions such as water resistance, stereo speakers, 120Hz displays, and more.

Samsung may want to keep the momentum going by improving the upcoming Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A73. Boosting performance with the help of AMD graphics could go a long way, but we’ll see.
