Exynos 2200 launch teased as Galaxy S22 confusion continues

Exynos 2200 launch teased as Galaxy S22 confusion continues

If there's one word that can be used to describe the Galaxy S22 as we know it through rumors, it would be "confusing." Although most rumors seem to agree on some of the key aspects of the three phones, they have so far turned out to be a mixed bag of disappointment and hope. Even more confusing, however, is the situation with Samsung's own Exynos 2200 vis-a-vis the Snapdragon 898. At least one part of the uncertainty might finally be put to rest when Samsung announces its graphics-focused silicon next week.

Galaxy S22 might go all out on Snapdragon 898

For years, Samsung has always been a two-processor house. It split its flagship series between Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors and its own Exynos silicon. The latter, however, has become quite controversial in the past years, and it seems that the drama might reach its peak in a few months. According to the latest rumor, the premier Galaxy S22 series will all be powered by the Snapdragon 898, with barely or no room for the much-awaited Exynos 2200.

Samsung is expected to soon announce what could be the biggest upgrade to its Exynos chips in years. The partnership it started with AMD a few years back is anticipated to level up the silicon's graphics game, utilizing AMD's rDNA technology for the benefit of mobile users. There has been some uncertainty, however, about which devices will be betting this Exynos 2200, especially with the ongoing chip shortage. The latest word gives a small amount of relief to would-be Galaxy S22 buyers, but the actual availability of this chip might still be in question.

Exynos 2200 promised to bring ray tracing to mobile

Smartphones and tablets have become extremely powerful to the point that some of them can even give cheaper laptops a run for their money. The processors that power these mobile devices can stand toe to toe with some laptop-class chips, as Apple's M1 Silicon easily proved. There are, however, some things these mobile chipsets still can't do, but Samsung is promising to narrow that gap with the Exynos 2200 and its ability to perform ray tracing on smartphones, tablets, and maybe even some laptops.

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.

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.

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.

Galaxy S22 with AMD-powered Exynos 2200 might be hard to find

Those who have no love for foldable devices might be looking forward to what Samsung has planned for its flagship next year. That is especially true for those curious about what AMD will bring to Samsung's family of Exynos chips. There are some expectations that the Exynos 2200 will bring about a massive improvement that might even begin to rival Apple's A14 Bionic. Unfortunately, those interested in seeing that for themselves might be a bit disappointed by rumors that most Galaxy S22 models will be using a Qualcomm Snapdragon instead.
