Samsung has started teasing its next flagship smartphone SoC — expected to be called the Exynos 2200 — ahead of January 11th. The ‘Exynos 2200’ is expected to come with a GPU powered by AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture and AMD’s RX 6000-series graphics cards. The new generation of Samsung chipset has been said will power devices in the Galaxy S22 series. This includes the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Ultra.
According to a tweet by the company “The gaming marketplace is about to get serious. Stay tuned for the next Exynos with the new GPU born from RDNA 2. January 11, 2022.” The new generation of chipset, the Exynos 2200 is expected to possess core architecture similar to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 which will fuel the American variants of the Galaxy S22, however it may lag behind in performance. As a successor to 2021’s Exynos 2100, the Exynos 2200 will likely power some of Samsung’s most powerful phones in 2022, including the presumed Galaxy S22 and S22 Ultra.
The new Samsung SoC is most likely to offer a 17 per cent increase in graphics when compared to the Exynos 2100 that powers the Galaxy S21 range and a five per cent improvement in CPU performance. The smartphone is gearing up to launch its Galaxy S-series flagship lineup and may launch the top-end model — Galaxy S22 Ultra — with 1TB internal storage. These upcoming flagship lineups will include the Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, and S22 Ultra.
All the smartphone models in this Samsung series are likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset or the unannounced Samsung Exynos 2200 SoC, depending on the region. Meanwhile, a recent report reveals that the upcoming smartphone series Indian variant will likely not have the next-gen Exynos in favour of the Snapdragon SoC for the first time ever in the region. To get more details on the Exynos 2200 (or whatever Samsung eventually calls it), we would have to wait till when the company is promising a formal debut on January 11th.
