Galaxy S23 series, new confirmations for Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

The Galaxy S23 family does not have many secrets and, after seeing the technical sheets (almost 100%) of each model and looking at the prices on the French market, today a new report from 9to5Google arrives that confirms it. Another of the most common features of the new Samsung smartphones, ie. the particularity of your SoC .

Thus, since the presence of an improved variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the top of the South Korean range has been mentioned on several occasions, a fact that 9to5Google now assumes again in an article that confirms its presence. It is a variant of Qualcomm’s SoC. The newspaper cites an anonymous source and documents presented to it, which show that the S23 will be equipped with foam. Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy “, which is a variant dedicated only to Galaxy smartphones.

As noted above, this version of the note has slightly higher CPU clock is compared with the comparison of one, because we are talking 3.36GHz on end Unlike them 3.2GHz Snapdragon 8 Gen II standard. It is not clear if the Galaxy nomenclature will also remain in the official promotional material, and if Samsung is trying to highlight the presence of a fundamentally exclusive SoC for its smartphones.

Some previous rumors suggested that this variant could be manufactured in-house by Samsung, but the hypothesis seems to have been withdrawn. then it should be Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 also from TSMCq . On the other hand, the silicon wafers on which the chips are made are not all the same and certain areas of the soCs can guarantee a better quality, so they can be pushed to slightly higher frequencies (on the other hand, in certain areas wafers have a lower performance and are used to produce the so-called binned variants, but this is not the case), as we saw a while ago also in other chips, such as the Snapdragon 845, whose improved version was exclusive. Aso’s first ROG Phone.

we remember Early benchmarks of the Galaxy S23 returned mixed results; because excess power was not precisely decisive for obtaining a higher score than other smartphones equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, probably due to the lack of an advanced dissipation system, capable of allowing the chip to express its full potential.

The promotional material does not explicitly mention the Galaxy S23, such as in the Diamond codename. But this is not enough to hide the identity of smartphones, since the acronym has already appeared several times in the past. So we can find that Galaxy S23 basic (DM1) must be offered $799.99 , S23+ (DM2) to $999.99 and Galaxy S23 Ultra (DM3) from $1,199.99 .

He also records several compositions to remember, from which arises To have 12 GB of RAM on the Galaxy S23 Ultra, you will have to buy the 512 GB variant . Obviously, other combinations in markets other than the United States are not ruled out, so the hypothetical 12/256 GB model could still hold up.

Finally, there is a final slide dedicated to Verizon stores from which employees can study the force with which Samsung wants to push the launch campaign Discover smartphones. Nothing really new on this side, except that the South Korean company has bet a lot on its ecosystem as added value compared to what its biggest rival offers.
