With January approaching, leaks and rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 series have started to flow. Just a few days ago, popular leaker Jon Prosser posted real-life pictures of a working unit of the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Leaks about the chipset of the next Galaxy S smartphone have also surfaced, in addition to the renders. Now it appears that Samsung might finally be listening to its customers as according to a new report from LetsGoDigital, Samsung might launch the Qualcomm Snapdragon variant of the S22 in Europe, and not the Exynos one.

LetsGoDigital says that it received this information from a former Samsung employee so the information seems credible. Previous leaks have suggested that Samsung will launch the S22 series in two variants: one with Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chipset and one with its own Exynos 2200 chipset (which will come with an AMD GPU).

Up until now, Snapdragon versions of the S series smartphones have been exclusive to China and North American markets. The company launches Exynos versions of the smartphone in African, Asian, European, and South American markets. However, this year it seems that Samsung will launch the Snapdragon 898 variant of S22 in the European market — though it might be due to chip shortage or it might just be the company listening to its customers.

Exynos 2200 is said to be a major improvement to the Exynos chips. Samsung is said to be using the ARM’s brand-new architecture (v9) for the 2200 chipset. If Samsung follows the ARM v9 architecture, it will have one Cortex-X2 core, three Cortex-A710 cores, and four Cortex-A510 cores. Moreover, the chipset is also said to be featuring an AMD GPU which will support ray tracing.

Which chipset would you like your Samsung Galaxy S22 smartphone to come with? Exynos 2200 or Snapdragon 898? Let us know in the comments section below!
