The exclusive use of the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 by the Galaxy S23 generation was interpreted by many as a blow to samsungHowever, that does not mean that the South Korean giant has completely thrown in the towel, since the latest leak published by Ice Universe shows what could be the basic specifications of the Exynos 2400.
According to the Ice Universe leak, the Exynos 2400 will be a SoC made up of ten cores distributed as follows: one ARM Cortex-X4, two high-performance Cortex-A720, three efficient Cortex-A720 and four Cortex-A520 that should be oriented to less intensive tasks. It’s important to note that none of these ARM core designs have seen the light of day yet and the leaker hasn’t provided any information about them, so it’s not possible to get an idea of the performance that the SoC would offer, at least for now.
The Exynos SoCs have not had a very graceful trajectory in recent years, and it is that, despite the fact that they have promised a lot on paper, at the moment of truth they ended up behind the equivalent Qualcomm models at least in the range high. And what’s more, Qualcomm itself changed Samsung to TSCM for the manufacture of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processors due to alleged problems with energy consumption found in the original Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
We’ll see if the Exynos 2400 ends up seeing the light, although Ice Universe is generally a reliable leaker, so it can be said that Samsung is at least working on its development. The corporation behind Galaxy smartphones it is also working on improving its 3nm manufacturing process, which has reportedly reached a “perfect level”so mass chip manufacturing with such a process might not be far off in time.
Due to the lack of information, it is speculated that Samsung could remove two cores from the alleged Exynos 2400, leaving it with eight instead of ten. The intention would be to improve efficiency in exchange for losing performance. We will see what the company does in the end, but it seems that it will have to improve a lot in a very short time to re-market a Galaxy S model with one of its own processors in the next generation.
