Why the Exynos 2400 Mass Production Doesn’t Guarantee Its Use in the Galaxy S24 Series
Over the past few days, there has been a lot of discussion and rumors have been circulating around Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S24 series and its chipset.
According to reports, Samsung is working on its Exynos 2400 chipset, which a lot of people expect to be featured in the Galaxy S24 series. However, the news of E2400 mass production does not necessarily mean that the chipset will be used in the Galaxy S24 series.
The reason for this is the licensing agreement between Samsung and Qualcomm. The two companies have a partnership agreement that requires the use of only Snapdragon chipsets for flagship mobile devices, including the Galaxy S series, until 2025. This means that Samsung cannot use its Exynos chipsets for its flagship smartphones, despite developing them itself.
For instance, the Galaxy S23 series was launched with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in most regions globally, and last year’s Galaxy S22 series launched with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the majority of regions. Therefore, there is a high possibility that the Galaxy S24 series will feature Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processors.
So, the questions is that where do these Exynos chipsets go? Well, the answer is simple. The S23 FE will feature the year old Exynos 2200, and the upcoming M, F and future FE phones will house the Exynos.
While reports suggest that the Exynos 2400 chipset will be going into mass production by November this year, it is still unclear whether it will be used in the Galaxy S24 series. The source believes that the Exynos 2400 chipset will be featured in the upcoming Galaxy S24 series, but Samsung fans may not be entirely thrilled with the news.
This kind of seems unjustified as the same kind of chipsets, tuned by Google are those housed under ‘Tensor‘. They perform slightly worse than the flagship Qualcomm processors each year and do also get significantly hot.
The reason for immense hate towards Exynos is due to the the fact that these chipsets have been criticized for their poor overall performance and efficiency in the past. If Samsung were to use the Exynos 2400 chipset in the Galaxy S24 series, it would be a gamble, as it may not live up to the expectations of the consumers.
While rumors suggest that Samsung is working on the Exynos 2400 chipset, it does not necessarily mean that it will be used in the Galaxy S24 series. The licensing agreement between Samsung and Qualcomm requires the use of Snapdragon chipsets for flagship mobile devices until 2025.
Many fans may have to hold off on their excitement until an official announcement is made regarding the Galaxy S24 series chipset. Till then, we will make sure to keep you updated on all new developments as new information becomes available.
