    Galaxy S24 appears with brand new Snapdragon chip, but there’s a catch

    Samsung did the unthinkable earlier this year and released the Galaxy S23 series equipped exclusively with a Snapdragon processor. As a result, the phones gained massively in terms of sustained performance and battery life. Next year, it was rumored that Samsung will bring back Exynos chips for the Galaxy S24. Now, though, the Galaxy S24+ has appeared with a Snapdragon processor.

    US-bound Galaxy S24 uses Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor

    The Galaxy S24+, bound for the US (model number SM-S926U), has appeared in Geekbench's database. According to the information in the database, the Galaxy S24+ uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor and  8GB RAM. Yes, it seems Samsung will offer the base version of the Galaxy S24 and the Galaxy S24+ with just 8GB of RAM. However, since the phone is still in testing, we hope Samsung offers 12GB RAM for base versions of the upcoming phones.

    The benchmark also reveals that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor has one Cortex-X4 CPU clocked at 3.3GHz, three Cortex-A720 CPU cores clocked at 3.15GHz, two Cortex-A720 CPU cores clocked at 2.96GHz, and two Cortex-A520 CPU cores clocked at 2.27GHz. Further digging reveals that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 features the Adreno 750 GPU. The Galaxy S24+, running Android 14, scored 2,233 points in the single-core CPU test (Geekbench 6) and 6,661 points in the multi-core CPU test.

    However, don't get your hopes too high if you're not in the US or China. It is rumored that the Galaxy S24 will be sold in Europe, Latin America, and some parts of Asia will come equipped with the Exynos 2400 processor. We still don't know what the performance of the Exynos would be like, but it better be similar to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in performance and efficiency. Otherwise, Samsung will be in a lot of trouble from disgruntled fans.
