Here’s how the Galaxy S22 could divvy up Exynos and Qualcomm SoCs


Last updated: November 9th, 2021 at 18:48 UTC+01:00

The Galaxy S22 series will most likely use Exynos and Qualcomm chipsets in different regions. This shouldn’t surprise any Samsung fans if it weren’t for a recent rumor mudding the waters. The adage ‘nothing’s official until it is’ remains true, and some rumors are more accurate than others. From the realm of high probability, a new rumor from Naver now suggests that the Galaxy S22 series will be a lot more similar to its recent predecessors as to how it will use Exynos and Qualcomm chipsets in different regions. In short, it’s very much in line with our expectations.

The Galaxy S22 series will be equipped with the Snapdragon 898 chipset in the USA (SM-S90xU) and the Exynos 2200 SoC in South Korea (SM-S90xN). The report doesn’t mention which chipset will be used for the international / European Galaxy S22 models (SM-S90xB), but as always, the Exynos 2200 is a safe bet (via @MaxWinebach).

And the mysterious SM-S90xE variants will be powered by:

The Snapdragon 898 chipset. According to this new information, the E-based Galaxy S22 models we discussed yesterday should be powered by Qualcomm’s solution rather than the in-house, Samsung-developed Exynos 2200 SoC. These variants (SM-S90xE) are supposedly planned for sale in countries in Africa and Asia.

The Exynos chipset packs some serious power, at least based on early online benchmarks, but we could be finding out more about the Exynos 2200 and its new AMD graphics next week. This will be Samsung’s first chipset to use a graphics solution from AMD and saying that expectations are high would be an understatement.

As for the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung should hold a launch event on February 8 and start selling the phones from February 18 after a short pre-order period. The company has yet to make these details official, but leaks suggest that the exact times and dates have already been set in stone behind closed doors.
