A lot of speculation has recently emerged concerning the Exynos 2200, Samsung’s latest processor that is supposed to be introduced with the Galaxy S22 series. Usually, Samsung is known to unveil the latest of its high-end chipset about a month before its new lineup is announced.
In the last week of the year 2021, the company had revealed plans of unveiling the Exynos 2200 on January 11. That was yesterday and no announcement was made. Samsung has now confirmed that the Exynos 2200 launch will be delayed. Although the company is yet to reveal a concrete reason for the delay. According to an official statement by Samsung which provide some form of clarity says that “We are planning to unveil the new application processor at the time of launching a new Samsung smartphone,” The company also added that “There are no problems with the AP’s production and performance.”
Reports say the delay is an attempt to discredit rumours about the Exynos 2200 not being used for the Samsung Galaxy S22 series at all. A tipster yesterday claimed that the new generation of chipset, the Exynos 2200 is expected to possess core architecture similar to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. This would mean that the Exynos 2200 won’t be used in Samsung’s upcoming flagship lineup.
While Samsung’s statement feels vague, it does say that the Exynos 2200 will be unveiled with a new smartphone, however, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the new Samsung smartphone will be the Galaxy S22. It has simply mentioned the “launch of a new Samsung smartphone” which is undoubtedly vague. This could further suggest that the Exynos 2200 will be unveiled when the new foldable devices are released later this year. But considering that we are closer to the launch of a new Galaxy S-series flagship, it is safe to assume it is the phone that the company is referring to.
Fingers are crossed to see how all this plays out as something unusual seem to be going on here. For now, we’ll have to wait to find out sure if the Exynos 2200 will indeed arrive with the Galaxy S22 series or not. The Exynos 2200 will be a successor to 2021’s Exynos 2100, this chip will most likely be Samsung’s most powerful chipset in 2022.
