There are many indications that next year’s flagship series of Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones will only be equipped with the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which will be presented at the end of 2022.
Samsung relied on its own Exynos processors, which we can find in the devices of the South Korean company, with the exception of some markets where the Snapdragon is placed. It seems that these times are passing, because Galaxy S23 models will receive the as yet unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which we expect to introduce at the end of this year. So far, regional division into versions has been used with Qualcomm and Exynox processors, but starting from next year’s series there will be no more partitions. This means that we will only buy the Galaxy S23 globally in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 version.
The Galaxy S23 will be available globally with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.
1. Qualcomm will probably be the only processor supplier for the Samsung Galaxy S23 (against 70% charge for the S22) thanks to the next flagship 5G chip SM8550 made by TSMC 4nm.

That’s what Ming-Chi Kuo thought. This is unofficial information and should be dealt with remotely, although resigning from Exynos does not seem improbable and even real. Apparently, this change in policy is due to Samsung’s problems with the Exynos 2300. Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 were produced in the 4 nm TSMC technological process, which works better, so it was decided, for example, to release the improved Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 The successor would be made from the same lithography, and Samsung realized it was unable to challenge Qualcomm.
There is indication that Samsung never produced the Exynos 2300, but leaker Roland Quandt says the flagship chip, codenamed “Quadra”, was still in development in late May. The Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ are expected to receive a 10 Mpix telephoto lens, similar to that installed in the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+. The selfie camera will undergo changes and in this case the company will use a 12MP lens instead of 10MP. The premiere of the new flagship will take place next year.
