Samsung promises to unveil its new chip (a priori the Exynos 2200) at the same time as its next smartphones (the Galaxy S22). The day before this declaration, the brand had a miss that marked the spirits.
” We plan to unveil the new app processor when a new Samsung smartphone launches. Said an official from Samsung Electronics. ” There are no issues with production and performance […] “. Here is what a representative of Samsung announced to the media Business Korea. Understand: the Exynos 2200 will indeed be presented very soon and at the same time (or just before) the Galaxy S22 smartphones. *
The announcement is surprising. This takes place on January 12, 2022. However, the day before, Samsung missed the meeting it had set to present its new home chip. The brand had indeed announced an event for January 11 in particular by promising announcements around of the promising RDNA 2 GPU which the future SoC will be equipped with. Except that patatras! That day, Samsung finally gave no sign of life.
Still a doubt between the Exynos 2200, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the Galaxy S22
As a reminder, the officialization of the Samsung Galaxy S22 is expected on February 8. The presentation of the Exynos 2200 (if it is indeed called that) would therefore take place in these waters, perhaps even at the end of January.
A doubt still remains however: will the Galaxy S22 sold in Europe benefit from this Exynos 2200 or will they switch to Qualcomm SoCs with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 like this has already been put forward by some rumors ? Because announcements almost at the same time of the chip and smartphones do not necessarily mean that they are linked. It is very likely, but still uncertain.
All these mysteries should be cleared up over the next few weeks as we approach February 8 and the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S22.
