Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship chipset earlier this week, and as you may have expected, the SoC will power Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series. More so, the Qualcomm-made chipset will power the Galaxy S23 lineup in Europe, meaning there will be no division between Snapdragon and Exynos next year. If you’re interested in learning more about the next-gen chipset, we dove deeper into the specifications for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC in a new video, which you can find below.
Qualcomm had very interesting things to say about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC during Snapdragon Summit. The company revealed the CPU core configuration, frequencies, and alleged performance and energy efficiency improvements. In addition, Qualcomm also talked about the chipset’s capabilities for mobile photography, as well as the new Adreno 740 GPU with Vulkan 1.3 support. We discuss these details at greater length in our new video, so make sure you don’t miss it if you want a better idea of what to expect from the Galaxy S23.
Needless to say, we’re grinning from ear to ear, thinking about the upcoming Galaxy S23 series getting powered exclusively by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. Even more so, given the possibility that Samsung’s flagship might benefit from an exclusive variant of the same chip, presumably boasting better optimization.
