Last week, a comprehensive rumor supposedly revealed the Exynos 2400 chip's specifications. However, some details may have lacked accuracy, and in light of a new report, the Exynos 2400 SoC might be even more powerful than initially believed.
Samsung's in-house Exynos 2400 chipset, which rumors say will power the Galaxy S24 series in select markets, should have no fewer than 10 CPU cores. Previously, the CPU core configuration was thought to look something like this:
- 1x Cortex-X4 core @3.1GHz
- 2x Cortex-A720 cores @2.9GHz
- 3x Cortex-A720 cores @2.6GHz
- 4x Cortex-A520 cores @1.8GHz
However, according to a new rumor shared by @UniverseIce on X, the Cortex-A520 efficiency cores in the Exynos 2400 chip will run at a higher frequency than 1.8GHz.

The source claims that the Exynos 2400 CPU core frequencies listed above are correct, save for one cluster. Namely, the high-efficiency four-core Cortex-A520 cluster will operate at a higher frequency of 1.95GHz instead of 1.8GHz. The source claims these specifications are 100% correct.
Previous reports also indicate that the upcoming Exynos 2400 SoC's Xclipse 940 graphics chip will have twice as many GPU cores as the Exynos 2200's Xclips 920. In addition, the Exynos 2400 should be compatible with UFS 4.0 storage and LPDDR5X RAM.
After Samsung released the Exynos 2200 chip in early 2022, the company decided to rely entirely on Qualcomm's chips for the next generation Galaxy S flagships released in 2023 and take this time to perfect its chip-making craft. Whether or not Samsung succeeded is to be determined, but at least on paper, the upcoming Exynos 2400 SoC has a lot of potential.
The Exynos 2400 chip is expected to debut early next year alongside the Galaxy S24 flagship series, although in some markets, the flagship trio will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. And like the Galaxy S23 lineup, the sequel models are expected to use an exclusive “for Galaxy” Snapdragon solution with higher clock rates than the standard chip.
