This list tells you if your Galaxy S22 will be Exynos or Snapdragon


Last updated: January 20th, 2022 at 15:09 UTC+02:00

Until now, it was fairly easy to guess which chipset a Galaxy S series smartphone would get, based on the region alone. It is a lot more complicated with the Galaxy S22 series thanks to conflicting information. Some asinine ravings went as far as stating that Samsung axed the Exynos 2200 entirely and that all Galaxy S22 phones sold worldwide would run the Snapdragon  Gen 1.

A new leak attempts to quell some of the ensuing confusion by giving us a region-by-region breakdown of the Galaxy S22 series’ chipsets.

A lot more Galaxy S22 phones will run a Snapdragon chipset this time

Twitter leaker Dohyun Kim has learned that all of Europe will get Exynos 2200-powered Galaxy S22 phones. Similarly, North and South America will get the Snapdragon  Gen 1, along with East Asia, South East Asia (India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, etc.) and Oceania (Australia, New Zealand). West Africa and the Middle East will get a mix of both, likely on a nation-by-nation basis.

The list tells us that Samsung was forced to use the Snapdragon  Gen 1 on many of its Galaxy S22 units. Reports from earlier last year speculated that the Exynos 2200 was a victim of poor yields on Samsung’s N4P node, forcing Samsung to push the Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S22 in more regions.

Based on Geekbench listings, we extrapolated which region would get which piece of silicon. Although the Exynos 2200’s initial appearances have been not very impressive, its AMD RDNA2 GPU is still something to look forward to, even though it appears to have been nerfed to oblivion.
