The thesis of a modified Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the care of Samsung is looming again for the Galaxy S23. Documents suggest that a “Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy” would be planned.
It appears that Samsung is planning to make a big change with the upcoming Galaxy S23. Until now, European consumers have been limited to a less powerful version of the Samsung Galaxy S with Exynos chip, while the rest of the world could take advantage of the all-powerful Snapdragon chip. However, it seems increasingly clear that those days may be over. As of February 1, the presentation date of the Samsung Galaxy S23, the Galaxy should switch to 100% on Snapdragon. Samsung even confirmed it half-word.
Last November, a test carried out on Geekbench suggested that Samsung would even benefit from a modified version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, with a maximum clock frequency raised to 3.36 GHz against 3.2 GHz base.
The thesis is confirmed
A recent article by 9to5Google supports this thesis. The specialized newspaper claims to have been able to consult documents which qualify the Galaxy S23 chip as follows: “Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy”, where a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 “for Galaxy”. The advanced frequency of 3.36 GHz by the Geekbench test also seems to be confirmed.
If the information is confirmed at the time of the launch, it is not yet known whether Samsung has planned to highlight this specificity and this name. It would not be the first time that a manufacturer has integrated a modified chip at its request. We can cite the OnePlus Nord 2 and its Dimensity 1200 -IA for example.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 could beat its competitors to the post thanks to this little extra, offering users a higher performance than most of its competitors. This could give the device an edge over the competition, making it a top-tier choice for those looking for a powerful device.
