The Samsung Galaxy S22 will arrive only with Qualcomm processor

Samsung tends to bet on two versions of processors for their flagships. Smartphones sold in the United States, China and South Korea arrive with a chip Qualcomm. On the other hand, in markets such as Europe, the Middle East and other Asian countries, they are betting on their own processor; known as Exynos. This year, with the Samsung Galaxy S22 just around the corner, the company’s strategy could be different.

The latest reports from Sammobile suggest the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, could come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 gen 1 processor, regardless of the market in which they are sold. The Exynos 2200, originally planned for European models, would not be included in this series of smartphones. In fact, and according to one leaker, the SoC developed by Samsung will be released “later”, and will not be ready for the Galaxy S22.

It is not clear why Samsung could have only bet on Qualcomm’s most powerful chip for its Galaxy S22. While its own chip predecessors they were underperforming To those of the American company, the Exynos 2200 model, developed together with AMD, seemed to match or even surpass the most recent Qualcomm model. Semiconductor shortages don’t seem to be the reason, either. Including two processors from different manufacturers would somewhat ease the limited stock of Qualcomm chips that has given Samsung and its latest smartphones so much trouble.

How will the Samsung Galaxy S22 with the Snapdragon 8 gen 1?

Samsung, at the moment, has not confirmed if the Galaxy S22 will arrive only with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. If this is finally the case, the three new smartphones of the Galaxy family will be up to 20% more powerful and up to 30% more efficient. than their predecessors with the Snapdragon 888 chip. They will also be able to enjoy the different novelties that Qualcomm included in its high-end chip. Among them, the possibility of browsing at speeds of up to 10 Gbps using 5G networks or improvements related to mobile photography.
