India gets the Galaxy S22 chipset that everybody wants


Last updated: February 7th, 2022 at 17:31 UTC+02:00

Every year, Samsung launches Exynos and Snapdragon versions of its high-end phones, and India gets the Exynos version. Due to the inferior performance of Exynos chipsets over the past few years, Indian consumers have been demanding Samsung to launch Snapdragon versions of Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series smartphones, and it looks like they will get their prayers answered this year.

According to a new report, tipster Ishan Agarwal has confirmed that Samsung will launch the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 versions of Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra in India. This would be the first time Samsung is launching the Snapdragon version of a Galaxy S flagship phone in the Indian market. Last year, the South Korean firm had launched the Snapdragon 865 version of the Galaxy S20 FE 5G in India after high demand.

Going by a previous leak, Snapdragon versions of Galaxy S22 series smartphones will be launched in China, Japan, Latin America, North America, South Korea, and Southeast Asia. Exynos 2200 variants of the smartphones will be available in Africa, CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), Europe, the Middle East, and Southwest Asia.

Both Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 are fabricated using Samsung Foundry’s 4nm process and feature ARM’s v9 CPU cores. They also feature 5G (mmWave and sub-6GHz), GPS, Wi-Fi 6E, and Bluetooth 5.2. However, the Exynos 2200 uses the AMD RDNA 2-based Xclipse 920 GPU with hardware-accelerated ray-tracing and VRS. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 uses the new-generation Adreno GPU.
