Could Samsung Galaxy S23 Series will use Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC?

Samsung isn’t killing the Exynos while collaborating with Qualcomm to ship the Galaxy S23 series with Snapdragon chipsets worldwide, yet, in Europe too! As it’s the first time when the former OEM decided to exclusively use Snapdragon chipsets for the Samsung S series, Qualcomm is seriously working on the 8 Gen 2.

Going ahead with the information dug by tipster IceUniverse, the US chipmaker is seriously working on the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 system-on-chip. Seems like, Qualcomm is making sure 8 Gen 2 must be a very impressive yet power-efficient chip, to impress Samsung as well.


It means, that all the 2023 Android phones will offer amazing performance, all thanks to Qualcomm’s 8 Gen 2 chipset. Meanwhile, the first ever phone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is likely to hit the shelves this November, possibly from Xiaomi.


Last year, Samsung manufactured the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor for Qualcomm, but due to performance and heating issues, the OEM switched to TSMC for the 8 Plus Gen 1 variant. It’s reported that the company is considering getting the upcoming chip manufactured by Taiwanese TSMC, instead of Samsung.

Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1

Back in May, Qualcomm introduced Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, which brings a super-core Cortex-X2, large-core A710, and the small-core A510. Compared to the standard 8 Gen 1, this new chipset delivers about 10% increased performance.

In addition to essential specs, the 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset brings Qualcomm aptX Lossless audio technology, 5G downlink rate up to 10Gbps, up to 200MP camera sensor support, as well as Android Ready SE certification as well as 8K HDR video and 64MP photos support.
