    Wild rumor claims Samsung’s Exynos 2300 has a special core for One UI optimization

    It has been widely reported that Samsung has ditched the Exynos 2300 in favor of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for the Galaxy S23. However, there has been no official word from either Samsung or Qualcomm about the Snapdragon's exclusivity. Some reports also claim that the Galaxy S23 will use a higher-clocked version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Now, more information about the Exynos 2300 has appeared.

    According to a wild rumor from Twitter user @sto_denebkaitos, the Exynos 2300 has four high-performance CPU cores, four power-efficient CPU cores, and a special core that takes care of One UI performance. That special core could be a Cortex-M series-like unit that focuses on keeping things smooth on the software side. Apparently, the Exynos 2300 scored 4,500 points in Geekbench's multi-core CPU test.

    Preview (opens in a new window)Another tipster @OreXda claims that Samsung created its dream team of engineers in 2020 to create a new processor from the ground up. This team was reportedly made while the development of Exynos 2100 was in progress, and the first chip designed by that team could be launched in 2025. Samsung is reportedly working in collaboration with AMD and Google for this chip, and it could be the most stable and high-performance chip ever used in a Galaxy smartphone.

    Samsung Exynos For Galaxy S25

    Rumors claim that Samsung's flagship smartphone chipset for the Galaxy S25 could have two Cortex-X5 CPU cores, two Cortex-A7xx CPU cores, four Cortex-A5xx CPU cores, and the RDNA3-based AMD GPU with eight cores (four WGP or Workgroup Processors). It could have a special One UI optimization unit, similar to the Exynos 2300, for a smooth UI. This chipset may or may not be branded as Exynos.

    Coming back to the possibility of the Exynos 2300 being used in some Galaxy S23, the rumor mill claims that it won't happen. The chipset may not go into mass production at all, and the Exynos team is reportedly trying to make the Exynos 2400 competitive with the Snapdragon chipset released for 2024 flagship phones.

    All of this is really fascinating to read, but you should take this information with a pound of salt. We still don't know for sure what's happening with flagship Exynos processors and if Samsung is trying to make a big comeback with a groundbreaking chip for the Galaxy S25. Regarding the Galaxy S23, though, it looks like Samsung is going all in with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
