Fans and enthusiasts are eager to see the Exynos 2200 in action, owing to its AMD Radeon-based GPU, which is said to outperform the competition. Unfortunately, it’s possible that we’ll have to wait a little longer for that to happen. Samsung’s Exynos 2200 debut date may have been pushed back, according to renowned leaker Ice Universe.
The Exynos 2200 has apparently been delayed, although it must still be released before the Galaxy S22
The Exynos 2200 is the chip that will power various Galaxy S22 models for specific markets (as Samsung has done in the past), thus the chipset should be released in the coming weeks as we approach closer to the Unpacked event, where the next Galaxy S series will be formally unveiled.
The Unpacked event is now set for February 8 (leaks indicate no official date has been set), therefore the Exynos 2200 processor should arrive before then.
Samsung announced in a Tweet last month that the next-generation chipset would be presented on January 11. However, this tweet has already vanished, indicating that the South Korean IT behemoth is indeed postponing the launch.
Previously, leaked Geekbench data revealed that the Exynos 2200 lagged behind the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in terms of performance, thus this could be a cause for the delay.
Another reason for the delay could be the current chip scarcity that has afflicted the entire mobile technology industry for several months. The actual cause of the delay, on the other hand, may never be determined.
Exynos vs Snapdragon
The Exynos 2200 still performs somewhat worse than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 according to leaked Geekbench findings.
We expect the Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S22 series will be available in the US and South Korea, as has been the case in prior years, while the Exynos-powered Galaxy S22 series will be available in Europe and other locations.
The newly leaked Geekbench results demonstrate how the two chipsets may differ. The single-core result of the Exynos 2200 on the Galaxy S22 Ultra is supposedly 1,014; this is much lower than the Snapdragon Gen 1’s 1,226. On the multi-core front, things are looking up for the Exynos chip, which scored 3,415, compared to 3,462 for the Snapdragon.
What to expect?
The official debut of Samsung’s next-generation flagship phones is rapidly approaching. The Unpacked event, where we will see the Galaxy S22, S22 Ultra, and S22 Plus for the first time, is expected to take place on February 8. Keep in mind, though, that Samsung has yet to confirm this.
In recent months, leakers have been busy painting a picture of what to expect when the three premium phones are launched. Thanks to leakers and tipsters, we have a lot of information about them. Here’s a quick rundown of what we know about them so far.
Three phones will be available: a Galaxy S22 with a 6.06-inch display, a Galaxy S22+ with a 6.55-inch display, and a Galaxy S22 Ultra with a 6.81-inch display.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra, which will come with its own S Pen stylus, will be the most premium and advanced model. As previously announced, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will be available in some markets, while Exynos 2200 will be available in others.
So far, we’ve heard the following about cameras:
- Galaxy S22 Ultra: 108MP main, 12MP ultra-wide, 10MP 3X telephoto, 10MP 10X periscope
- Galaxy S22+: 50MP main, 12MP ultra-wide, 10MP telephoto
- Galaxy S22: 50MP main, 12MP ultra-wide, 10MP telephoto
We predict the standard S22 to have a 3,700mAh battery, the S22+ to have a 4,500mAh battery, and the Ultra to have a 5,000mAh battery. Per reports, all three will offer 45W fast charging.
