The iPhone 15 is about to be launched, so don’t be stunned to see rumors about competing gadgets intensify. The Pixel 8 Professional simply leaked from Google’s website, after which the corporate introduced the date of its launch occasion. Samsung’s Galaxy S24 collection additionally appeared in a number of thrilling leaks this week, as among the cellphone’s important specs surfaced in new stories. We nonetheless have a number of months to go till Samsung’s occasion, so there’s no purpose to fret in regards to the upcoming flagship for those who purchase the Galaxy S24 Extremely variant.
However sure consumers eying the bottom S24 and the Plus model have a giant Exynos 2400 downside coming their manner.
Bear in mind the Exynos 2200?
The Galaxy S22 might have been a terrific handset if it wasn’t for Samsung’s choice to throttle the Exynos 2200 flagship chip out of the field. Customers shortly reported the efficiency points, and Samsung needed to take care of the following scandal final yr. The corporate needed to apologize and promised it might overhaul its chip enterprise.
The Galaxy Fold 4, Flip 4, S24 collection, Fold 5, and Flip 5 flagships all use Qualcomm’s very best chip. Samsung and Qualcomm inked a multi-year deal for Galaxy gadgets. Consequently, the Galaxy S23 collection shipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip designed for Galaxy.
I’d have thought we wouldn’t need to revisit the Exynos SoCs for a minimum of a couple of years. Not till Samsung had discovered a option to make its flagship chips extra aggressive. Placing some stress on Apple’s iPhone SoCs and Qualcomm’s processors would undoubtedly be a giant win for the trade.
The Galaxy S24 Extremely may be the cellphone to purchase
Exynos 2400 rumors have slowly begun to creep in, saying that some fashions within the Galaxy S24 collection will use Exynos chips. As was the case with previous-generation fashions, this is able to occur in worldwide markets, together with Europe.
Newer rumors say that a minimum of the Galaxy S24 Extremely mannequin will characteristic the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. Twitter person Revegnus, who leaked particulars in regards to the Galaxy S24 collection earlier than, appears to suppose so.
The tweet above was a reply to outstanding Samsung leaker and critic Ice Universe, who has discovered that the European Galaxy S24 fashions will rock the Exynos 2400 SoC.
That’s not nice information for European consumers. Samsung won’t be doomed to repeat the errors it made with the Galaxy S22 collection. The Korean big is aware of higher than that. Nonetheless, Samsung doesn’t have an amazing historical past of creating nice cell chips. It’s fairly the opposite.
Storage choices to match iPhone 15 Execs?
Chips apart, Revegnus additionally detailed storage choices for the Galaxy S24 Extremely. Unsurprisingly, the flagship is rumored to go as much as 2TB subsequent yr.
I say “unsurprisingly” as a result of the iPhone 15 Professional/Max also needs to include as much as 2TB of storage, a primary for Apple.
It’ll be attention-grabbing to see how a lot RAM Samsung packs contained in the Galaxy S24 Extremely, contemplating that many Chinese language distributors have embraced 24GB RAM modules for next-gen gadgets.
The additional RAM might assist 2024 Android telephones compete higher in opposition to Apple’s A17 Bionic chip. However the iPhone 15 Professional/Max SoC would be the solely cell chip available on the market constructed on the brand new 3nm course of. Apple reportedly purchased out TSMC’s complete capability for the primary yr. That’s one more reason to fret in regards to the Exynos 2400.
