The Exynos chip range (and Galaxy devices) have taken a lot of heat from customers after a string of mishaps. Although the Exynos 2100 was a superb processor, the Snapdragon 888 was still more effective and potent. Similar problems also affected the Exynos 2200 with an AMD-designed GPU. As a result, it’s been reported that Samsung’s smartphone business is considering employing the Snapdragon CPU exclusively with the Galaxy S23.

But now we have our first proof that the Galaxy S23 is using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, at least in the US. The US carrier-locked Galaxy S23 (SM-S911U), which features Qualcomm’s newest flagship smartphone processor and runs Android 13 (One UI 5) out of the box, has been seen in the Geekbench database.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU in the Galaxy S23 US model was created utilising TSMC’s 4nm technology

This chipset includes three intermediate CPU cores running at 2.8GHz, three major CPU cores operating at 3.36GHz, and four power-efficient CPU cores clocked at 2.02GHz. They scored excellently in the benchmark test for CPU performance. The next smartphone scored 1,524 points in the single-core CPU test and 4,597 points in the multi-core CPU test of Geekbench (version 5.4.4).

It is expected that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will feature the most recent ARM CPU cores and be produced utilising TSMC’s 4nm technology. Both thermal performance and power efficiency are anticipated to significantly increase with the TSMC processor and ARM’s CPU cores.


Since the Galaxy S23 is anticipated to launch in the next two to three months, it’s probable that during the next few weeks, we will learn more about the possibility of the smartphone’s Exynos 2300 variant. According to rumours, will have many of the same features and characteristics as its predecessor.
