Samsung Exynos 2200 SoC To Be Introduced Along With The Galaxy S22 Series: Report


Samsung has reportedly confirmed that it will launch the Exynos 2200 along with the Galaxy S22 series later this month or in February. The flagship chip was launched earlier this month. Samsung is expected to deliver an improved user experience and performance over last year’s Exynos 2100 through the new System-on-Chip (SoC). It is confirmed that AMD has developed a GPU that can rival Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. So far, the Galaxy cell phone maker has used Mali GPUs in its Exynos chips, which offer poorer graphics than the Adreno GPUs available on Qualcomm SoCs.

Citing a Samsung official, South Korean news agency Business Korea reported that the company plans to launch the Exynos 2200 SoC at the time of the launch of its new flagship smartphone. The official reportedly refuted claims that the company is experiencing issues with the production and performance of the Exynos chip.

Late last month, Samsung teased the launch of its new Exynos chip on January 11th through teasers posted on social media. However, the company quietly withdrew the teasers – indicating the delay in the announcement.

Samsung usually brings its new Exynos chips ahead of its flagship phones to test their performance beforehand.

Samsung confirmed last year that it was partnering with AMD to create a next-generation mobile GPU in its next flagship Exynos SoC. It will be based on AMD’s RDA-2 graphics architecture.

The official quoted by Business Korea allegedly said the new GPU is supposed to solve the problems of the Exynos 2100 chip. The existing SoC caused problems for some users, including heat generation.

“We intend to strengthen our competitiveness by loading GPUs for gaming into mobile devices,” said the official, as quoted in the publication.

Samsung is expected to use the Exynos 2200 SoC in the Galaxy S22 series for Europe and South Korea. However, the phones designed for markets like India, China and the US would come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip.

The rumor mill has suggested that the Exynos 2200 would be based on Samsung’s 4nm LPE process technology.

Gadgets 360 reached out to Samsung for clarification on the announcement of the new Exynos chip. This article will be updated as the company replies.

According to a recent report, Samsung could host its next Galaxy Unpacked event on February 8th, where the Galaxy S22 series will be showcased. New phones in the lineup may include the Vanilla Galaxy S22 alongside the Galaxy S22 + and Galaxy S22 Ultra.
