Samsung will launch the Exynos 2200 alongside the S22 series, denies any issues

The Exynos 2200 was supposed to be unveiled yesterday, but it did not happen and rumors began circulating about problems behind the scenes. Now a Samsung official has approached Business Korea to clarify the reason for the change of plans – everything is fine, there are no production or performance issues, instead the launch was redesigned to coincide with the Galaxy S22 series.

“We plan to unveil the new application processor at the time of launching a new Samsung smartphone. There are no issues with AP’s production and performance,” the official said.

As we pointed out yesterday, the Exynos 2100 was announced just two days before the Galaxy S21 series, so it’s not a big deal to unveil the new chip a month ahead of time. The important thing is to solve the problems that last year’s chip experienced.

Samsung’s official pointed the finger at the ARM Mali-G78 MP14 as the culprit. “The new GPU is expected to address the issues with the Exynos 2100. We intend to sharpen our competitiveness by loading GPUs for gaming into mobile devices.”

As you have probably already heard, the Exynos 2200 will be the first smartphone chip to use AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture, and thanks to that it will be the first to have hardware support for ray-tracing. Samsung has not yet officially committed to a date for the unveiling of the Galaxy S22 series, but Korean media report that it will happen on February 8th.
