Galaxy S22 series with Exynos chipset starts appearing at European retailers

As it appears, the claim that all Galaxy S22 devices will ship with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU is losing credibility. GalaxyClub, a Dutch website, has discovered a handful of Galaxy S22 back order postings in Europe, all of which point to Exynos-equipped devices.

Despite the fact that the Exynos brand isn’t mentioned in the listings, the model numbers clearly suggest that these phones all have the Exynos 2200 chipset.

The listed phones have the model numbers SM-S901B, SM-S906B, and SM-S908B, with the “B” designating the Exynos variant (while Snapdragon Galaxy S22 variants with a “U” following the number are indicated with a “U”).

Several Geekbench results of smartphones with the aforementioned “B” classification have been published online, and the core arrangement and clock rates of these tested models match what we expect from the Exynos 2200.

This latest development backs up a raft of previous rumors that date back to November of last year. On Twitter, the well-known leaker @IceUniverse (who has a good track record with leaks) stated that the Galaxy S22 will still get the Exynos 2200 in some locations.

Samsung will use both the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the Exynos 2200 chipset in the next Galaxy S22 series, according to the Korean website TheElec. Although back order listings may change at the last minute, it appears that European users will get the Exynos 2200 models.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 versus Exynos 2200 – which one is better?

Actually, these two chipsets aren’t that dissimilar. Both processors have the same 1+3+4 core configuration, with one large Cortex X2 core, three Cortex-A710 cores, and four efficient Cortex-A510 cores.

Clock frequencies, cache levels, and general optimization are the differences.

The graphics sector is where the biggest difference between the two chipsets can be discovered. Samsung made headlines when it revealed a partnership with AMD and a plan to bring AMD’s rDNA graphics architecture, which includes ray-tracing, to its mobile phones.

On this one, Samsung does not want history to repeat itself. So, while we’re pleased about the RDNA and the Exynos 2200 in general, we don’t expect significant differences between the two Galaxy S22 models.
