Every year Samsung releases its S-series phones with two chipsets, depending on the region. However, with Samsung Galaxy S23, the company seems to change its traditional and use a single Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset worldwide.
Samsung Galaxy foldable series is coming next month, while some fans and consumers are already looking forward to the next year’s Galaxy S23 series. This is because Samsung’s S-series offers the most advanced features.
So, the Galaxy S23 series which consists of three models – S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra will reportedly come in early 2023. All three devices will feature Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. As per the company’s tradition, another chipset was expected to be Exynos 2300.
Meanwhile, according to the new information by tipster Ming-Chi Kuo, Samsung Galaxy S23 series will exclusively feature Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and there will not be Exynos 2300 variant.
