Samsung Semiconductor was supposed to unveil the Exynos 2200 today, but delicious Isunivers states that the launch has been postponed. Actually original tweet who pointed to the date of January 11 has been deleted from the company’s official Twitter account.
According to Korean media, Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S22 series on February 8, and sales are set to start on the 24th. Last year, the Exynos 2100 was announced on January 12, the S21 series arrived two days later, so there is still time for to unveil the 2200 chip before the S22 series goes live.
Yet such last-minute schedule changes suggest that there are problems behind the scenes. The Cat points to the Exynos 1200, a mid-range chip that was rumored to be launched last year (reportedly in November). It appeared on several benchmarks driving the Galaxy M33 5G and A53 5G, however, neither the chipset nor the phones have been revealed.
And now the 2200 is the second chipset launch that Samsung has had to push back. Will the Exynos chip be ready in time for the Galaxy S22 launch? The better question is how many units can be produced – a potential shortage of chipsets will cause limited availability of the new flagships. Still, there is about a month before S22 devices are to be shipped to stores, Samsung still has time to fix the issues.
