The Galaxy S23 will arrive in France with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, goodbye Exynos!

While Samsung has been relying on its own Exynos processors in Europe for several years now for its high-end smartphones, we now know that the Galaxy S23s will all be equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chips.

At the beginning of July, the famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo indicated that Samsung was finally going to abandon its Exynos chips with its next generation of smartphones, and this was confirmed with the signing of a partnership between the Korean giant and Qualcomm at the end of July. The latter had indicated that the Snapdragon chips ” will equip more high-end Samsung devices worldwide » compared to previous years, and the American company has just clarified what that means.

Indeed, Akash Palkhiwala, chief financial officer at Qualcomm, said in an official statement that Snapdragon chip market share will increase from 75% in S22 to 100% for the S23s. After using Exynos processors for several years now in Europe, Samsung will finally allow French users to enjoy better performance with Qualcomm chips.

All Galaxy S23 will be entitled to a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip

Qualcomm will present its new high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip on November 15, which should arrive at the end of the month on the Xiaomi 13 in China. We know that this will use a different configuration from previous generations, since we will find one core (Cortex-X3) clocked at 3.36 GHz, four cores (two Cortex-A715 and two Cortex-A710) clocked at 2.8 GHz as well as three cores (Cortex-A510) clocked at 2.0 GHz.

The Galaxy S23 has already appeared on the Geekbench benchmark with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and we are now certain that all users will benefit from the same performance. We will also be entitled for the first time to Wi-Fi 7 connectivity, as well as UFS 4.0 chips and LPDDR5X RAM.

While we thought that the Galaxy S23 could arrive at the beginning of January, a new report from our Korean colleagues from Chosun revealed that Samsung was planning to launch its smartphones in the first week of February at an event in San Francisco. Samsung would therefore have a slight lead on its usual schedule.
