Samsung Galaxy-exclusive chip could be teased at S23 launch

According to a recent leak from tipster Ice Universe last week, a poster from the Samsung Columbia website reveals the Galaxy S23 series will be arriving on February 1st.

It features the tagline ‘Epic moments are on the coming,’ In addition to this, now a new leak from tipster Ice Universe tweeted that Samsung’s president of mobile experience Business, TM Roh, will launch a “Galaxy dedicated chip” at the event.

This is not surprising given that TM Roh hinted at the development of a dedicated chip for Galaxy handsets back in April. In comparison, the Google Tensor chip, which will be reintroduced in the soon-to-be-released Google Pixel Fold, provides the same AI capabilities that Samsung might incorporate into their own chipset.

Exynos chips, which are available in worldwide markets, have long powered Samsung’s premium Galaxy S series, whereas Snapdragon SoCs are utilized for clients in North America and China. However, insiders have claimed that every Galaxy S23 device includes a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor that has been overclocked.

According to sources, the first high-end chipset from a South Korean company is claimed to be created utilizing the second or third generation of 3nm GAA manufacturing technology used by Samsung Foundry. However, no specific details about the CPU’s features have been made public.

Over a thousand other specialists are claimed to have joined Samsung MX’s engineering team, including a seasoned Apple semiconductor expert. Exynos processors might eventually be phased out of Galaxy smartphones and tablets if the company’s first chip is a success.
