It was big news that this year’s Samsung Galaxy S23 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip in Europe. We usually always get the Exynos chip in the leading Korean tech brands in our part of the world. We hope you’re not used to the changeup the S23 brought, as there’s a good chance the S24 will return to Exynos in Europe.
Exynos in Samsung Galaxy S24
It was thought that Samsung was now taking over the Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm because the Exynos chips were more prone to issues like overheating and performance issues, but it looks like Samsung is going back to those chips anyway. A great option, given the bugs and their bad effect on battery life and more issues that unfortunately appeared earlier with Exynos chips than with Snapdragon chips.
The delicious Ice Universe, who is often right, says the Exynos 2400 chip is a strong contender to be implemented in the Samsung Galaxy S24. This may worry Europe, but the possibility that this may be the choice in other regions cannot be ruled out. Although Samsung hasn’t announced it yet (and probably won’t until early 2024, when the device is expected to launch), Ice Universe says it’s 100% sure.
There is no Snapdragon 8 Gen 3
The tech company is likely to make this choice because the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is quite expensive. Now that people are also more careful about spending money, since many things are becoming more expensive, they seem to be choosing the cheaper option. Moreover, it’s not just pessimism and gloom: Samsung’s chips, the Exynos, don’t stand still. The improvement of processes and therefore the resulting processors continues as well.
In addition, Samsung Galaxy S24 is expected to have better screens and better batteries, so there is enough upgrade in these devices. Although we’ll all have to wait and see, of course: it’s only complete when Samsung says so. But the anticipation is half the fun, of course. Although it is not really pleasant for everyone that for us Europeans it will be Exynos again soon.
