We have forgotten it a little, but a few days after the end of CES, on January 11 to be precise, Samsung was to introduce us to theExynos 2200. The successor to the Exynos 2100 was developed in collaboration with AMD, and its integrated GPU will benefit from the RDNA 2 architecture, like the GPUs (much more powerful of course) that equip the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Yes but now, nothing happened on January 11, and Samsung postponed the presentation of its processor to a later date, without further details. The Galaxy S22 being expected for next month, we could hope that its new Exynos processor would be unveiled a little before the launch of the smartphone. The postponement is therefore not very logical… unless the Exynos 2200 finally does NOT ship in the Galaxy S22.
This assumption would be disappointing, but would “fit” with a recent leak which announced that all Galaxy S22 models, without exception, would be equipped with a processor this year. Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, while usually the models marketed in Europe carry Exynos. Everything therefore suggests that the Exynos 2200 is not ready for the launch of the S22, perhaps due to production concerns if we are to believe the most recent “leaks”. Samsung brushed aside these rumors, but it’s hard to see what other explanation could be put forward to explain this unprecedented imbroglio.
