Samsung and Qualcomm have entered into a partnership for the upcoming line of Samsung smartphones.

As for the upcoming Galaxy S23 series, it will have a unique chipset officially named “Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy.”

A special Snapdragon 8 chip

The chipset may have a long name, but Samsung has created a simpler way to remind consumers about the special chipset running their new flagships, which is the new, redesigned Snapdragon logo. Consumers can expect to see this logo prominently displayed on billboards and online starting next week as Samsung’s Galaxy S23 lineup is officially unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked Event on February 1. The chipset will be exclusive to Samsung, at least at launch.

The new version of Qualcomm’s second-generation Snapdragon 8 mobile platform still uses TSMC’s 4nm process. Its super-large core is the Cortex X3, of which the CPU clock frequency reaches 3.36GHz. It is higher than the 3.2GHz version used by the standard version.

In addition, the new version of the second-generation Snapdragon 8 CPU also includes four 2.8GHz large cores and three 2.0GHz small cores. It integrates the Adreno 740 GPU. Its benchmark score on AnTuTu exceeded 1.3 million.

Exynos 2400 is coming

Samsung’s self-developed Exynos 2300 will no longer be used in the Galaxy S23 series. Instead, the company will use it in the Galaxy S22 FE, a mid-range device.

The Exynos 2400 will start mass production in November this year and will be adopted in the subsequent Korean version of the Galaxy S24 series. At present, we have heard about the Exynos 2400 specs. But they are quite different. Say, one of the leaks say that the chip will adopt 1+4+3 octa-core architecture, while the other says that the processor will use 1+2+3+4 ten-core architecture.

It is expected that the super large core will be the Cortex-X4, the small core will be the Cortex-A510, and the large core will be the Cortex-A720.

Samsung Galaxy S23 specs

The series’ promo materials have been leaked. According to it, for starters, the base Galaxy S23 will feature a 6.1-inch FHD+ (2340×1080) AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Galaxy S23+ will come with a larger 6.6-inch screen but the same display specs as the Galaxy S23. The Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected to feature a 6.8-inch AMOLED QHD+ (3088×1440) display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The phones will have the best specs and camera settings. The “Snapdragon for Galaxy” designation is also expected to appear in the Galaxy S24 series. With all that said, it’s possible that Samsung could switch to using its own chipset in the future.
