Samsung Galaxy S23 will have “exclusive high frequency version” Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset in Europe
Over the past few years, you may have grown increasingly frustrated with Samsung’s decision to use its arguably inferior Exynos SoCs in Europe in its flagship devices instead of Qualcomm’s Snapdragons. If yes, then you must have been happy to hear, directly from Qualcomm no less, that there will be no more Exynos in the Galaxy S23 family next yearnot anywhere in the world – it’s all Snapdragon everywhere.
Adding to the excitement today is a famous leakster The ice universewhich reveals that Samsung will use an exclusive high-frequency version of the just announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset for the Galaxy S23 family in Europe, adding to all of its competitors in the process.
The best time has come for European users.

The ice universe published an alleged benchmark run result from Geekbench 5, showing the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra (model number SM-S918B) achieving a single-core score of 1,504 and a multi-core score of 4,580, while running Android 13 of course. These results are slightly lower than what we have seen before. The prototype that was tested had 8 GB of RAM.
The Cortex-X3-based Kryo Prime core clocks in at 3.36GHz, up from 3.2GHz in the non-Samsung version of the SoC, though the frequencies of the other seven cores are unchanged. It’s unclear how much of a difference this will make in real-life usage scenarios, but it’ll certainly be a good thing for Samsung to brag about.
