The last time Samsung launched a flagship device with the Exynos chipset was last year with the Galaxy S22 line. Although the devices arrived in Europe with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 platform, in other countries the processor chosen was the Exynos 2200.
This disappointed many users, as the Exynos 2200 had lower performance than its rival from Qualcomm. This year, Samsung brought the Galaxy S23 line only with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 For Galaxy platform, abandoning the Exynos chipset. Now a mysterious device from Samsung has passed through Geekbench with the supposed Exynos 2300.
An unknown Samsung device with passcode SM-S919O appeared in the database of the benchmarking platform Geekbench. The device does not have the description of any of the South Korean devices on the market today, suggesting that it may be a prototype in the testing phase.
Under the hood, the cell phone appears to be equipped with the nine-core Exynos 2300 chipset, fleeing the traditional eight-core architecture. It features a main core clocked at 2.6 GHz, four performance cores at 2.59 GHz and four efficiency cores at 1.82 GHz.
However, the SM-S9190 model should not reach the market with the Exynos 2300 chipset, since it would have been cancelled. On the other hand, rumors indicate that Samsung is developing the Exynos 2400, which should feature a 10-core architecture and equip some models of the Galaxy S24 line.
Other rumors suggest that Samsung is developing the Galaxy S23 FE, which should hit the market with the Exynos 2200. Some bet on the possibility of the South Korean betting on the Exynos 2300, but there is no concrete information to reinforce this.
