Remember MediaTek’s Helio X Series? That’s a 10-core CPU also, but they were way ahead of the curve at the time, but this time– Samsung’s taking a shot
The Galaxy S23 series, which all feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipsets, was introduced by Samsung last week. The most recent rumors suggest that although the Korean manufacturer did not introduce its own Exynos platform for the flagships, it is still developing one.
The Exynos 2400 is on the way, according to Ice Universe, a site renowned for providing accurate information about Samsung products. The chipset’s CPU will adopt a 10-core architecture, consisting of 1x Cortex-X4 + 2x Cortex-A720 (higher frequency), 3x Cortex-A720 (lower frequency), and 4x Cortex-520.
There is no data on which smartphone this potential chipset would power; the foldable, which are typically released in the summer, have always used Qualcomm chipsets.
It is reasonable to anticipate Exynos 2400 in a year for the Galaxy S24 lineup given how Exynos 2100 debuted in 2021 for the S21 series and Exynos 2200 followed suit a year later.
Given MediaTek’s Helio X Series blunder, it’s interesting how Samsung will handle this “new-ish” architecture, and whether will it be more powerful than the standard 8-core chipsets on the market.
