Everything is changing – that’s the motto of Samsung’s Friday event. Many people thought the world would see the latest chipset, the Exynos 2200, but the refutation has now become official.
Samsung’s old good habit usually announces its latest Exynos chipset a few weeks before the new Galaxy S Series smartphone is unveiled. The world is already looking forward to the long-rumored Exynos 2200 (the first Exynos chip with a six-core AMD RDNA2 GPU and ray-tracing technology), so it’s no surprise that when a mysterious Instagram post appeared in Samsung’s Exynos account, a With the #EverythingChanges label, it seemed clear to many that the time had come to announce the new set of chips. This may have seemed logical just because you read in the post about the future of gaming graphics, and AMD’s GPU supports high-end gaming features.
But then the most competent, Samsung, cooled the mood. On Twitter, he made it clear that, contrary to preliminary expectations, the event will not be Exynos-themed, with quite a few changes announced.
Despite the rumors, we don't have any Exynos-related events planned on 11/19, but we do have some changes coming to our social accounts. Stay tuned to the @SamsungDSGlobal account for more!

Many who have expected the new Exynos chipset may be disappointed, though it’s not that there won’t be such a chipset. It’s just not yet known when Samsung will unveil it. However, benchmark results have already been released. The one with non-small details of the measurements was made public. I, in turn, have been published that the Exynos long-term performance difference between 2100 and Exynos 2200 is between 17 and 20 percent (of course, the novelty of acting), but the peak power even shows a 31-34 percent difference. This is impressive, although, for mobile gamers, lasting performance is paramount.
A second measurement is compared to two generations – the Exynos 2200 in a supposed prototype Galaxy runs S22. Exynos 2200 scores are slightly above the Galaxy S21 benchmarks but at a much lower clock speed. However, there are likely to be further refinements in both the engineering prototype and the chipset software management, so the S22 with the Exynos chip is expected to perform better than the S21, which also works with such a chip.
As for the scores on the Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 888, the new Samsung chipset wins by an enormous difference as Qualcomm’s processor clock is at a similar level. However, the latest Snapdragon 898 processor is already included in the Galaxy S22, so the question remains whether the Exynos 2200 benefits at all.
In the meantime, however, even some thought-provoking news came to light. Among other things, the Dutch site LetsGoDigital shared the leak of a former Samsung employee. All Samsung S22 models will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC in all regions, including Europe and Asia. Earlier news was only that Samsung would use fewer Exynos chips than usual. Everything is expected at the Samsung Unpacked event on February 8, 2022.
