Exynos processor is not dead! Good but surprising news for Samsung fans with the adoption of new certificates
According to recent reports, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series will go full-fledged with Qualcomm Snapdragon processors next year, and it seems that Samsung has abandoned the idea of dividing its flagship line between Snapdragon and Exynos variants as was the norm previously.
Discussions about this have been around for years, but this year everything changed. The lackluster performance of the Exynos 2200 forced Samsung to ship more Snapdragon variants to the world.
Next year, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor will be used, but this does not mean that the Exynos chipset division is completely finished!
There’s still a lot of work being done to push it forward, as a pair of the new chipsets have received Bluetooth SIG certification, but they’ll be for lower-end flagships (mid-range and low-end).
Exynos 1380 and 1330 mid-range processor
Samsung continues to struggle to become a force in the mobile chip segment, a new pair of Exynos chips have been certified as part of the company’s efforts to push the Exynos chipset forward, making up for any previous failures.
It is likely that the Samsung Exynos 1330 and 1380 chipset will represent the lineup of mid-range phones, and to be precise, it is likely that we will see new Galaxy A-series phones released with these chips in 2023.
An interesting detail is that the SIG certification confirms Bluetooth 5.3 compatibility with this chipset. It’s a step in the right direction to introduce the new standard.
According to reports, the Samsung Exynos 1380 It is the successor to the previous 1280, and rumor has it that it has 2 x ARM Cortex-A CPU along with a Mali-G615 GPU and an integrated 5G modem. The modem will offer support for mmWave connectivity and sub-6 GHz.
The chipset could appear in the first quarter of 2023 in devices such as the Galaxy A54 or Galaxy A74, these devices are very important because they can drive sales to the family.
The Exynos 1380 processor is linked to the mid-range and “upper mid-range” segments, while the Samsung Exynos 1330 will be on the lower end of the market, and apparently the chipset will be modest and fit into the category occupied by the old Exynos 850 from 2020.
More details will appear in the coming months, and it is worth noting that Samsung is also busy with Tensor G3, and we will bring you all the information as soon as it comes to us via digital TV.
