Samsung's flagship trio for the year 2022 is here. The company finally launched its Galaxy S22 series yesterday, which consists of three high-end devices: Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, and the S22 Ultra. Are you ready to place your order for your S22? But which variant are you getting — Exynos 2200 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 1? Read along and learn which countries are getting the Exynos and Qualcomm models of the Samsung Galaxy S22 series.

Like previous-generation S-series devices, Samsung is again going to launch the S flagship in some countries with Qualcomm's latest chipset (the Snapdragon 8 Gen1) and with its own Exynos 2200 silicon in some other countries. However, it looks like things have changed a bit this time. As per a report from Android Authority, some countries which previously used to get Exynos models will get the Snapdragon models this time.


As usual, Samsung will sell the Qualcomm version of the S22 in the United States and Korea. But, in addition to these countries, buyers in India, South Africa, Australia, the UAE, and the rest of North America will get the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 S22 models. This is surprising as previously Samsung used to launch the Exynos version of the S-series flagships in these regions.
