Ever since Qualcomm mentioned its Snapdragon chips would be used in more Galaxy devices starting in 2023, multiple reports have claimed that the Exynos 2300 is dead and that Samsung will exclusively use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the Galaxy S23 series. However, a new report claims that the Exynos 2300 is alive and kicking.
According to tipster @RGcloudS, the 4nm Exynos 2300 chipset exists, and it will power the Galaxy S22 FE and the Galaxy Tab S8 FE. Both devices will reportedly be unveiled during the Galaxy Unpacked 2023 – Part 2 event. The Galaxy S22 FE reportedly replaces the Galaxy A74, which aligns with our previous report.

The Galaxy S22 FE reportedly features a 108MP ISOCELL HM6 camera and will be priced similarly to the Galaxy A73 5G. This is a considerable upgrade compared to the Galaxy S21 FE’s 12MP primary camera sensor. Hopefully, the device features a dedicated telephoto camera as well.
Another rumor from tipsters @OreXda reiterates that the Galaxy S22 FE is coming soon. The rumor goes on to claim that the Galaxy Buds 2 Live wireless earbuds will also be launched soon. Tipster @dohyun854 claims that the Galaxy S23 FE doesn’t exist.
If these rumors are true, Samsung will replace Galaxy A7x devices with Galaxy S FE phones. It will also use Exynos chips in the foreseeable future despite Samsung MX making its own chip division. If you remember, a rumor recently claimed that System LSI would restrict itself to making automobile chips, and smartphone chips will be designed by Samsung MX’s new chip development division.
