The Galaxy S22 processor could be much more powerful than expected


Now that the iPhone 13 Other Pixel 6 are available in stores, we are already thinking about the next big flagship smartphone. Next up is the Galaxy S22 and we recently learned that the next Samsung phone is going to offer a big surprise. The Galaxy S22 Ultra will become the successor to the Note 20 that many fans have longed for. The Ultra will feature an integrated S Pen stylus which will allow Samsung to introduce a distinct design. But all three Galaxy S22 models are expected to feature the same powerful specs. This means Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 898 processor will power the Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, and the new S22 Ultra.

The mystery of the Galaxy S22 processor

Samsung will be the first vendor to release a smartphone with an AMD GPU, but we have no idea when that will happen. AMD confirmed its partnership with Samsung several months ago, but we haven’t yet seen a new Exynos-branded System-on-Chip (SoC) that will include a new processor and AMD GPU.

Samsung recently made fun of some sort of announcement from Exynos by mid-November which may focus on the graphics performance of mobile devices. That’s not to say the Galaxy S22 will definitely be the first phone to rock this processor. Or is it related to AMD.

Separately, some reports stated that Samsung would not be relying on the Exynos 2200 for the Galaxy S22 series. However, an insider disputed the rumor that the Snapdragon 898 will be equipped on every Galaxy S22 model.

Samsung has used the same playbook for various Galaxy S and Note models in the past. Some markets got the latest Snapdragon SoC, while others got Samsung’s brand new Exynos chip. The same could happen next year when the Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra hit stores.

Snapdragon 898 could provide significant updates

Qualcomm is expected to introduce the Snapdragon 898 SoC by the end of the year. And we would expect Xiaomi to unveil the world’s first smartphone with the new flagship chip. The Galaxy S22 series will launch in mid-February, according to the latest rumors, so Samsung shouldn’t be far behind.

Having said that Samsung will use the Exynos 2200 in the S22 series, Ice universe is back with exciting details on the Snapdragon 898. The insider has been a solid source of information for the past few years, providing valuable insight into Samsung’s plans for the industry.

The leaker said on Twitter that the Snapdragon 898’s GPU performance and energy efficiency are “too strong”, indicating that the update is even better than expected.

According to Ice, the Snapdragon 898 has greatly improved in all other aspects, including GPU, AI and ISP. Heat dissipation continues to be an issue, the leaker said.

He followed up on rumors about Exynos, stating that the Exynos 2200 will have to deliver a monstrous GPU upgrade to accommodate Snapdragon 898’s Adreno 730 GPU.

Otherwise, only the Snapdragon 898 will compete against the A15 Bionic GPU next year.

The surprise rebrand

In-depth reviews have been shown on the iPhone 13 the enormous power of the A15 Bionic, which is unrivaled in the industry. Real-life speed tests have also shown that the Snapdragon 888 powers the Galaxy S22 predecessor he had no chance of outperforming the iPhone 13.

Finally, the leaker has also released another curiosity about the Snapdragon 898. Qualcomm may try to rename the flagship processor, choosing “Snapdragon 8 gen1” for the new SoC.

While Ice has an excellent track record, we will point out that we are looking into unconfirmed rumors at this time. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Tech Summit takes place in late November. Samsung wants to launch the Galaxy S22 series in mid-February.
