Exynos 2200 leaked specs might have one important catch

Exynos 2200 leaked specs might have one important catch

Apple just launched the iPhone 13 with its new A15 Bionic processor, and, naturally, it's already being hailed as the fastest in the mobile market, especially in graphics performance. That might not matter much to Android manufacturers who can't use the chip anyway, so Samsung, Xiaomi, and others are fighting in a different arena. At least for Samsung, that might not be an issue if this new information about the upcoming Exynos 2200 with AMD graphics is right on the mark.

Galaxy S21 FE launch might be near, Exynos 2100 model confirmed

The Galaxy S21 FE might be one of Samsung's most troubled phones this year, and that's before it even has the chance to launch. Designed to supplement the reportedly disappointing sales of the Galaxy S21 flagship, the Fan Edition has repeatedly been rumored to face production issues attributed to the global chip shortage. Those troubles might finally be in the past, and it seems that Samsung is close to launching this affordable Galaxy S smartphone, sadly with some disappointing points.

Galaxy S22+ benchmark scores are not what they seem

Galaxy S22+ benchmark scores are not what they seem

Although it's hard to take them at face value, benchmark sightings, especially on Geekbench, have often become indirect sources of information for upcoming phones and computers. They mostly reveal information about the device's processor and RAM, but they might also hold clues about other specs. At the very least, they can give an idea of how powerful or weak an upcoming device might be. That seems to be the case with this Geekbench entry for what is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S22+, provided you take the numbers with a grain of salt.

Galaxy S22 Exynos 2200 US availability might be limited to one carrier

There is plenty of positive pre-release talk about the Exynos 2200, especially its performance, but that might all be for naught when launch day arrives. That's because the availability of devices using this much-awaited AMD-powered mobile chipset could be severely limited to the point of being absent even in Samsung's hometown. That said, there are some markets and key players that seem to be negotiating with Samsung on the matter, and the US might eventually see an Exynos variant of the Galaxy S22, at least from a single network operator.

The Android tablet market has had its ups and downs, but Samsung remained steadfast in putting out slates on all market tiers, even when the going went tough. Perhaps spurred by the success of the iPad Pro line, Samsung has also started expanding its high-end tablets to include more size options and configurations. Next year, the manufacturer might push the envelope even further with a Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra that will blur the boundary between tablet and laptop.

Snapdragon Wear 5100 CPU might be a modest upgrade after all

The launch of the Galaxy Watch 4 also brought with it a new Exynos chip designed for wearable devices. Built on a 5nm process, the Exynos W920 promises to be the most powerful and most energy-efficient platform for smartwatches today, though it is only available for Samsung smartwatches anyway. Qualcomm is expected to fire back soon with a Snapdragon Wear 5100, but, based on new yet unofficial information, it could end up being a bit of a dud in at least one aspect.

Samsung Exynos W920 officially confirmed coming to the Galaxy Watch 4

Although it is hardly like OnePlus or even the old LG, Samsung once in a while does its own teasing of upcoming products without actually teasing them. It does so by announcing beforehand some of the technologies and features that will be seen in the next product launch. With less than 36 hours left before Unpacked 2021, Samsung is doing exactly that with the Galaxy Watch 4, revealing the brains behind what could be the most interesting Wear OS smartwatch to launch in a long while.

Galaxy Tab S8 leaks have one disappointing detail

Although Android tablets still do exist, their numbers have dwindled considerably, especially those coming from notable manufacturers. Samsung remains the torchbearer for these slates, launching tablets across all tiers year after year. Next year won't be any different, and the rumors about the Galaxy Tab S8 trio sound pretty promising. Unfortunately, those also bring one disappointing rumor for those hoping that Samsung's next pro-level tablets will run on its best Exynos silicon yet.

Galaxy Watch 4 specs leaks paint a very impressive picture

Smartwatches naturally have fewer hardware resources than their smartphone partners, but Wear OS smartwatches have been unpopular for having rather mediocre hardware in comparison to other platforms. That is particularly true with the processor that most vendors use, with technologies dating back to 2018 or older. The upcoming Wear OS attempts to break away from that bold, but its first incarnation might be taking things even farther. If these latest leaks are correct, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 could be one of the most powerful smartwatches yet.

Galaxy S21 FE might ditch Snapdragon for Exynos chips

Samsung has a big event scheduled in a month or so, but not everyone might be that interested in its new foldable phones. Some might have been more excited over the Galaxy S21 FE, but the signs are pointing to disappointing changes ahead that go beyond just delays. The "Fan Edition" of Samsung's flagship line might not make it until October at the earliest, and it might not even come with one important feature that those prospective buyers might be expecting.
