We’re almost two weeks away from Samsung Unpacked and with the anticipation mounting, and newer leaks surfacing online, it remains to be seen what the world’s most prolific smartphone maker has in store, as far as the hardware is concerned.
The S24 series, with earlier leaks was heavily criticized for its lack of upgrades, and while a lot of that has to with Samsung leaning into artificial intelligence this year, we saw with an accidental phone listing that this wasn’t the case.
Exynos’ Return to Samsung’s Flagships — E2400 in S24
The vanilla S24s will come equipped with Samsung’s in-house Exynos 2400, after skipping a year with the S23 series, Samsung is bringing back the Exynos, and recent Geekbench tests have revealed updated scores for this SoC.
The chipset comes with a 10-core CPU configuration (1+2+3+4), with the base efficiency Cortex-A520 cores clocked in at 1.96GHz, followed by five Cortex-A720 cores, three clocked at 2.6GHz, and two at 2.90GHz. The big-core, Cortex-X4 is clocked in at 3.10GHz.
Exynos 2400 Falls By 84 Points in Single-Core, 56 Points in Multi-Core
The Exynos 2400 scores 2193 in single-core testing and 6895 in multi-core scores. For a bit of a reference, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 scores 2277 in single-core and 6953 in multi-core testing. The performance gap isn’t too much; as we saw in previous years, but with a 84 (single-core) and 58 points (multi-core) gap, it remains to be seen how the real-life performance is affected.
In light of all that, the power consumption and efficiency numbers will play a huge role in determining Exynos’ standing amongst the competition. Other than that, we saw that Exynos 2200 in the S23 FE performs significantly better than that in the S22 Ultra so, with a few tricks up their sleeves, it will be seen what Samsung has in store at Unpacked, 17th January.
This is all we know for now, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
