Even the Galaxy S22 has been reduced in use, and the Samsung Exynos 2200 processor has caused discussion
According to foreign media reports, South Korea’s Samsung released a new generation of flagship smartphones Galaxy S22 series in India today, confirming that the Indian market will use Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile processor, causing industry discussions. Since the Galaxy S22 series also uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile processor in the South Korean market, compared with the Galaxy S series mobile phones in South Korea and India, which use its own Exynos processor, Samsung has made many associations in the industry this time.
The new Galaxy S22 series flagship phones have Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 version and Samsung Exynos 2200 processor version. According to the foreign media “Android Authority”, the Samsung Galaxy S22 series will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in South Korea, China, North America, Australia, India, the United Arab Emirates and South Africa, and the Exynos 2200 in the European and UK markets. Exynos 2200 processor version of the Galaxy S22 series models sold in fewer regions than in the past. Market participants speculated that it may be because the Exynos 2200 production yield is too low and the performance is not as good as expected, but Samsung has not responded positively to the market news.
There is also news that Samsung’s mobile phone department does not want to use Samsung LSI’s Exynos processor. The reasons are not only poor performance and high power consumption, but also because there is only one customer of Samsung mobile phones, and overseas models all use Qualcomm, and the volume is not large enough. Caused Samsung to review LSI internally, hoping to stop developing Exynos processors.
South Korean media “Koreabizwire” reported that Samsung originally expected the Exynos 2200 mobile processor to be installed in half of the Galaxy S22 series of mobile phones, but the foundry department responsible for the production of Exynos 2200 had a low yield rate and insufficient production capacity, and failed to deliver on time, making Samsung mobile phones final. Most still choose Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Samsung Group also investigated the management of the foundry department, examining the overall competitiveness and low yield.
