Samsung Galaxy S24 & S23 FE could feature Exynos chipsets
Samsung is bringing back its controversial chips.
Samsung ditched its Exynos processors in flagships after backlash from users after the Galaxy S22 series.
However, it looks like Samsung’s in-house SoC could make a comeback in the future, as a recent report indicates the brand could use Exynos processors in its upcoming Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S23 FE.
Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S23 FE could feature an Exynos chipset
The news comes from Pocket-lint. The new outlet has heard from a reliable source that the Korean tech giant could start using its Exynos chipsets again in select regions like it used to.
A previous report indicated that Samsung plans to release the Galaxy S23 FE with an Exynos chipset in select regions. This new report solidifies the said claim.
However, this change might be coming sooner than expected, as the recent leaks hints at Galaxy S23 FE arriving with an Exynos chipset in select regions. It’s also possible that the Galaxy S24 will arrive with the same chipset, in 2024.
While using a different chipset isn’t an issue for Samsung, the Exynos line has had a rocky track record. The Galaxy S22 series units were riddled with performance and other issues.
That said, Samsung is also likely going to choose the latest Snapdragon processors in other regions. So, the differences will be clear upon the device’s arrival.
So, the question is, when can we expect the Galaxy S23 FE to arrive?
According to the latest report, a Samsung representative, Justin Hume, confirmed the Galaxy S23 FE will launch soon. So, you can expect the launch or an announcement to come soon.
As far as the design, we have already seen a few leaked renders of the Galaxy S23 FE, and it has the same design signature as Samsung’s other releases this year.
So, there’s nothing to be too excited about in that department. The device has also appeared in a leaked regulatory filing, which is the first time it has been spotted in the wild.
The company is clearly aware of the past shortcoming of its Exynos chips, so there’s no reason to believe it will repeat them. With that, let’s hope Samsung will at least tweak the Exynos chipset to perform comparably to the leading chipsets this time.
