Earlier this week, an unannounced Samsung Galaxy S22 + appeared on the Geekbench rating website using a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. And, now the Galaxy S22 Ultra (SM-S908B) has been spotted on Geekbench running on a chipset identified as the s5e9925, which is reportedly the forthcoming Exynos 2200.
The octa-core processor has three CPU cores operating at 2.52GHz, one at 2.50GHz, and four at 1.73 GHz. Now you may argue that the reported clock speed is much lower than previously suggested. It is probably an unfinished product and needs a lot of preparation.
In addition, the Geekbench list also mentions the architecture of the ARM v8. There are rumors that the Exynos 2200 will use the new v9 design which will bring significant improvements to table performance. Maybe that’s why we see Geekbench 5 low scores again. The device scored 691 points on single-core tests and 3,167 on multi-core tests.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is listed with 8GB of RAM in this Geekbench benchmark. But the device will come with 12GB of different RAM, and maybe 16GB of different too. All three models will run Android 12 out of the box, with Samsung’s One UI 4 skin on top. You can check out our Galaxy S22 Ultra preview to find out more about the upcoming smartphones.
Exynos-powered Galaxy S22 is certified
The latest observations on Geekbench also confirm that the Galaxy S22 series will come in both Snapdragon and Exynos models depending on the market. While we were expecting this from the beginning, rumors have recently suggested that Samsung could use the unveiled Snapdragon processor, the unveiled Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, on its upcoming flags around the world.
But that doesn’t seem to be the case. Samsung seems to be able to make enough Exynos 2200 SoCs for use in the Galaxy S22 series in other markets. It may end up using Qualcomm chipsets in more markets than in previous years, but the Exynos-powered Galaxy S22 will be available.

Samsung’s Exynos processors have failed to match the performance of its Qualcomm counterparts in recent years. But now things are looking much better for a Korean company, at least on paper. It remains to be seen whether this will translate into real improved performance.
Samsung Galaxy A13 4G production reportedly started in India, one step closer to launch
Previously, the Samsung Galaxy A13 design has been officially unveiled along with the official images. This is not the first time we have seen this design, but it is the first time it has been influenced by official images. The smartphone also appeared on the Bluetooth SIG, so it received a Bluetooth certificate.
And now, Samsung Galaxy A13 4G smartphone production begins at Greater Noida factory, India. As per the latest info, it comes with a plastic rear panel with a glossy finish and features the same quad-camera setup as seen on the Galaxy A52S 5G.
Going forward, the Samsung Galaxy A13 4G also features a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port and speaker grille at the bottom edge. At the same time, there is a power button and a volume rocker on the right edge.
Galaxy A13 expected specification
If this design seems familiar to you, that is because the Galaxy A12 looks the same as before. The fact is, the rear camera settings look completely different, so the design is not exactly the same.
The Galaxy A13 is rumored to be shipping with the MediaTek Dimension 700 64-bit octa-core SoC. That chip will be paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. A 6.48-inch full HD+ LCD display has also been mentioned.
A 50-megapixel main camera can find a way behind this phone, as well as an 8-megapixel photo shoot. Samsung can install a 5,000mAh battery inside the phone, as well as a 25W charger.
Samsung Galaxy A03 with 48MP dual camera, 6.5-inch display unveiled
Samsung has recently unveiled a new budget smartphone under its famous Galaxy A line called Galaxy A03. Following the official infographic, we got an idea of its specifications, design, and features, while the availability and pricing remain unknown.
According to the Galaxy A03 infographics, the device features a 6.5-inch Infinity-V display with an HD+ resolution. On the back, it has a dual-camera system consisting of two sensors including a 48MP (f/1.8) primary sensor and a 2MP (f/2.4) depth lens, plus, it brings a 5MP (f/2.2) front camera for selfies.
Under the hood, the Galaxy A03 is equipped with a mysterious octa-core 1.6GHz chipset with a dual-core CPU cluster alongside another six-core cluster, possibly a cheap Unisoc processor. However, the memory configurations include 3GB + 32GB / 4GB+64GB / 4GB+128GB.
Aside from this, the company confirmed that the Galaxy A03 will be available in three different color shades including Black, Blue and Red. This upcoming budget phone’s body measures 164.2 x 75.9 x 9.1mm, which is quite similar to its predecessor, Galaxy A02.
As the company is likely to begin 2022 by launching the Galaxy S21 FE for Europe, the Galaxy A03 could be available sometime later this year. Are you interested in purchasing this new cheap Galaxy smartphone? Stay tuned with us to get further development on the story.
Samsung to finally drop Galaxy Note line by end of 2021!
Samsung is expected to discontinue production of the ‘Galaxy Note‘ series later this year. It has been confirmed that the Galaxy Note series will be dropped from the 2022 annual smartphone production plan.
After launching an unannounced new product, the company decided to completely withdraw its current models that continued sales. By applying the S Pen to the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 3, the Note experience is consolidated, but it is still in demand to receive demand from Galaxy Note series enthusiasts who have a built-in pen.
According to Korean media ETNews, Samsung decided to discontinue the Galaxy Note lineup by the end of this year. And the company will present the Ultra model of the Galaxy S series as a Note phone as the Galaxy S22 Ultra is rumored to come with a Galaxy Note-like S Pen chamber.
Samsung’s decision to discontinue the Galaxy Note series
Earlier this year Samsung S confirmed the possibility of integrating the Galaxy S21 Ultra lineup by supporting handwriting input. The Galaxy S22 Ultra model, which will be unveiled early next year, is expected to include not only the overall product design but also key features such as the Galaxy Note’s pen storage.
The main reason for Samsung’s decision to discontinue production of the Galaxy Note series is the growing production of foldable smartphones. It can be seen that the decision was made to reduce costs by stabilizing the yield of the foldable product and improving the efficiency of the process so as to replace the major sales in the second half of the year.
