Samsung’s TM Roh is closely monitoring the manufacturing of the Exynos 2400 chipset. The standard Galaxy S24 will reportedly use the Exynos 2400 chipset with a higher 12GB RAM.
The exact CPU of the processor is currently unknown. Meanwhile, a leak suggets that it will feature a 10-core, quad-cluster design, while another says it will stick to a tri-cluster, 8-core configuration. On the other side, the GPU will be RDNA, it could be RDNA 2 or RDNA 3.
