So far, there have been many rumors about the new Samsung Galaxy S23 series and the chip that is expected to be used in these phones. According to the latest report from notebookcheck, apparently Samsung’s internal Exynos chip will not be used in the new flagships.

It is said that TSMC’s 4nm node has performed significantly better; However, it has led to the launch of the updated Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip. The upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be built on the same node, and Samsung has realized that its process is not competitive.
The Korean company has recently started manufacturing a 3nm GAAFET, which is likely to compete well with TSMC’s 4nm node. competes; But according to reports, the yield rate is still too low to meet the production needs of the Galaxy S23 series. This node has just entered production and according to reports, it will not be ready for mass production until the end of 2022; Therefore, there is little chance that the Galaxy S23 will use a chip built on this process.
