Samsung Galaxy S22 Series can get Snapdragon 898 SoC in India and other regions

The Samsung Galaxy S22 series is considered the next non-folding main series from the South Korean tech giant. New reports suggest that upcoming smartphones are likely to be powered by a Snapdragon chipset in some markets and the Exynos chipset in the rest. Indian users will get the Snapdragon 898 on their Galaxy S22 handsets. Previous reports have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S22 series might come with 65W fast charging support, and the supposed Galaxy S22 Ultra should get an updated 108 megapixel sensor.

Tipster Tron (@FrontTron) – quoting Clien – has tweeted that Samsung has confirmed that some markets will receive the Snapdragon 898 SoC while other markets will receive the Exynos 2200 SoC on the Galaxy S22 series. The report suggests that Europe, South America and some other unspecified regions are sure to get the Exynos processor. On the other hand, US-bound devices will receive the Snapdragon chipset, but the report suggests that Verizon is in talks with Samsung to equip the Galaxy S22 series with the Exynos 2200 SoC.

The report also mentions that some markets are “highly likely” to obtain the Snapdragon 898 SoC. This includes markets such as India, Southeast Asia, South Korea and Hong Kong. However, the latter two markets are negotiating with Samsung to equip the Galaxy S22 with the Exynos 2200 SoC.

It is important to note that the final decision on the chipset for each market has not yet been made. The report also mentions that Samsung chip designer System LSI is under pressure to reduce the cost of the Exynos 2200 SoC. Samsung’s IT and Mobile Communications (IM) Division is apparently in talks with Qualcomm and the chipset maker allegedly agreed to lower the unit price of the next Snapdragon 898 SoC.

SamMobile reports that it is likely that the Exynos 2200 SoC can outperform the Snapdragon 898 SoC, as the former may come equipped with a superior AMD Radeon graphics chip compared to the one powered by Qualcomm. Both chipsets have yet to be revealed, so this information should be viewed with a dash of salt.

A previous report mentions that Samsung is testing a 65W fast charge for Rainbow RGB, where R, G and B refer to Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra. Another report from last week mentions battery capacities for two Samsung smartphones. The EB-BS906ABY battery has a nominal capacity of 4,370mAh and is speculated to be packed into the Galaxy S22+. The EB-BS908ABY battery has a nominal capacity of 4.855mAh and can be seen on the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Are the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 still made for enthusiasts – or are they good enough for everyone? We discuss this on Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast. Orbital is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music and wherever you get your podcasts.
