Samsung will be showcasing the highly anticipated new Exynos 2200 SoC, built in partnership with AMD and using the RDNA2 GPU. The teaser event on social media featured the title and hashtag “Game Time Ends” to get everyone ready for the announcement scheduled for January 11, 2022.
but as Video Kaz Fans were thrown high, the report said. Instead of surprising everyone, the electronics giant plunged into the dark. The trailer and even the event website were taken down, and Samsung didn’t explain what happened until a day later.
according to Korean business, Samsung has delayed the launch of the Exynos 2200 with the following statement.
“We plan to launch the new application processor when the new Samsung smartphone is launched,” said a Samsung Electronics official. “There are no issues with AP production and performance.”
However, the sudden change in plans, combined with an outburst of radio silence from Samsung, has left room for a lot of speculation from all sides. Several high-profile leakers have sparked speculation that Samsung is trying to boost the frequency of its integrated graphics, which it previously claimed were overheating at an initial target frequency of 1.9GHz, which has now dropped to 1.3GHz.
Another known leaker, Dohyun Kim, believes that Exynos may be largely impossible for the Galaxy S22 series. Instead, South Korea, the US, and Europe will all see Snapdragon variants, and we may not see the new Exynos 2200 or its successor for a while. It’s not uncommon for Samsung to release different chip variants in different regions, but one is almost better than the other, making the device less powerful in some markets.
