The Galaxy S22 series with the Exynos chip was spotted in European retail stores

Not long ago, it was said that all Galaxy S22 models will ship with the Snapdragon 8th generation chip worldwide, and now it seems that such a report is not true. Quoted from PhoneArena, Dutch website has found a handful of Galaxy S22 order listings in Europe, all featuring the Exynos chip.

Although the listings do not mention the Exynos brand, the model numbers show All these phones are powered by the Exynos 2200 chip.

The model number of the named phones SM-S901B and SM-S906B and SM – They are S908B, where the letter “B” at the end refers to the Exynos type; while the Galaxy S22 models with the US Snapdragon chip are marked with U.

Various Geekbench results from the “B” phones have been revealed, and the core configuration and clock speed of these models tested against expectations from Exynos. 2200 goes, matches.

Recent results confirm other rumors related to November 2021. IceUniverse, a well-known whistleblower with a fairly stellar track record of leaks, posted on Twitter that the Galaxy S22 will still ship with the Exynos 2200 chip in some regions.

A week later, the Korean website TheElec also announced that Samsung will use the Snapdragon 8 generation 1 chip and Exynos 2200 in the new Galaxy S22 series. It now looks like European users will indeed get Exynos 2200-powered versions; Although the list of orders may change at the last minute.

The difference between these two chips lies in the clock frequency and cache levels and overall optimization. There are several benchmark scores of the Exynos 2200, and while early samples showed Samsung’s new chip lagging behind Qualcomm’s 8th generation Snapdragon, the latest results paint a different picture.

The biggest difference between both chips can be found in the graphics department. By announcing the cooperation with AMD, Samsung intended to bring AMD’s RDNA graphics architecture including ray-tracing to its smartphones.


Overall, we can say that both chips will be very close in terms of performance. First, the CPU architecture is very close and many things can be done to increase the performance such as changing the clock speed and managing the thermal bottleneck. Second, Samsung will launch its next flagship series in two models, and there will be a backlash if there is a significant performance difference between the two variants.

Some of you may remember the 2019 lawsuit that In that, angry users demanded the ban of flagships equipped with the Exynos chip; Therefore, Samsung does not intend to repeat history again.
