Until the launch of the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung radically followed two chipsets (Snapdragon and Exynos) strategy per market and region. Well, finally, Samsung fans in Europe will be able to grasp a true flagship without Exynos processor in the form of Galaxy S23 or S23 Plus or the S23 Ultra.
As pointed by out IceUniverse, for Europe consumers, upgrade from Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra to the Galaxy S23 Ultra is going to be “an earth-shaking change.” To add more authenticity to these words, the source shared benchmark scores of Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processors.
Sadly, the Galaxy S22 series ships with Samsung-made Exynos 2200 processor in Europe and a handful of other markets, while others get Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 variant. Compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, used in a Vivo phone, the Exynos 2200 is badly defeated in almost every segment.
Exynos 2200 vs Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset is manufactured by Taiwanese TSMC on 4nm process technology. The processor features 45% increment in Geekbench 5’s multi-core test, over the Exynos 2200. This huge improvement in benchmark scores will surely be making a positive change in overall performance.

So far, European consumers got Galaxy flagships with Samsung’s own made Exynos chipsets. In 2023, they will finally have their hands on the Galaxy S23 series phones with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which performs 60% better than the GPU of Exynos 2200, along with notable 88% more power efficiency.
Galaxy S23 Series
Qualcomm officially confirmed that the Galaxy S23 series will use Snapdragon processor worldwide. However, there’s more! It’s being reported that the upcoming Samsung flagships will use an overclocked version of 8 Gen 2 chipset for more enhanced performance.
Currently, we don’t have any official statement from Samsung on this matter, however, the company is reportedly going to launch the Galaxy S23 series flagships in the first week of February 2023 at an in-person Galaxy Unpacked event in San Francisco United States.

Whereas, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 is expected to come with the same dual camera setup consisting of a 50MP main and ultrawide lens. Even though, the camera quality of Samsung’s upcoming clamshell device may beat, the immense-looking quad camera module and could win the hearts of users.
Moving ahead, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is currently the latest clamshell model of Samsung and it is also said to be the best invention of 2023. The device comes with a large 3.4-inch cover display, while the Pocket 2 only features a 1.15-inch cover panel making it less functional for users.

The device reportedly measures 155.2 x 77.1 x 10.54mm when folded, making it one of the thinnest foldable smartphones on the market.

The clamshell device will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, a bigger cooling system, and an improved hinge and internal layout for an optimized experience. In addition, the smartphone will be thinner and lighter having a stronger glass and inner display as compared to its predecessor.
Moving on, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is also tipped to support 7 years of Android upgrades and might be equipped with Galaxy AI features, therefore, this is what makes the sixth-generation clamshell device different from the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5.
