Samsung is believed to be mulling over the decision on whether to go with an Exynos 2300 SoC or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset for the Galaxy S23 series. The details of these chipsets are still up in the air. Rumours in the past have suggested the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC may sport a combination of Cortex-X3, Cortex-A720, Cortex-A710, and Cortex-A510 cores. However, a notable tipster has recently shared a different configuration of this chipset along with more details.
According to a tweet by tipster Ice universe (@UniverseIce), the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC may feature a pair of 2GHz Cortex-A715 cores instead of the Cortex-A720 cores. The remaining configuration is believed to be the same with a 3.2GHz Cortex-X3 core, two 2GHz Cortex-A710 cores, and three 3GHz Cortex-A710.
The tipster has also mentioned that the chipset bearing the model number SM8550 is being developed using TSMC’s 4nm process. Furthermore, the neural processing unit (NPU), image signal processor (ISP), and GPU have all been greatly improved on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
