Qualcomm itself confirmed that the entire Galaxy S23 series was going to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, a chip that is emerging as the most advanced that the San Diego giant has developed so far, and that will also be used in other high-end terminals based on Android.
However, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for the Galaxy S23 was going to be a special modeldifferent from the general version that will be present in other smartphones, and today we have been able to confirm that both Qualcomm and Samsung want to highlight this fact, so much so that they have even prepared a special logo.
In the attached image we can see said logo, which includes a reference to the fact that this chip is exclusive to the Galaxy series, and is also The features that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 would be able to offer in games stand out. The headline refers to the Galaxy S23 Ultra and literally says that “the search for an epic mobile gaming experience is over.”
Gaming on mobile devices continues to move a lot of money, and the high performance of the most powerful SoCs makes sense when they are used to move these types of applications, so I am not surprised to see that Samsung has decided to promote its Galaxy S23 Ultra in this way. form. It remains to be seen, yesif the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is able to outperform the Apple A16.
I remind you that according to the most recent and reliable information, the only difference between the exclusive Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC of the Galaxy S23 and the standard model will be its working frequencies. We don’t have the exact specs, but there is talk of a slight MHz increase in the Cortex-X3 core and in the GPU.
The presentation of the Galaxy S23 will take place on February 1, so there is little left for us to find out what these new smartphones are capable of. However, I think we will also be left with a very important question that it will take us a while to answer: What will Samsung do with the Galaxy S24, will it relaunch a top-of-the-range Exynos SoC or will it resort to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC? Seeing the interests that Samsung has in the semiconductor sector, I lean more in favor of the first option.
