Samsung has been releasing two versions of its flagships for a long time, which are equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon and Samsung Exynos SoCs. Exynos mobile platforms were often criticized for poor performance, so Samsung partnered with AMD to create a next-generation platform with a very fast GPU. This SoC is due out as the Exynos 2200 and will debut in the Samsung Galaxy S22.
Prior to that, there were rumors that only a few countries would get access to the Galaxy S22 with the new Exynos 2200 chip, while most smartphones will be equipped with Snapdragon 898. The reasons were the difficulties in the production of Exynos 2200 and the inability to supply a sufficient number of mobile platforms by the time of launch of Galaxy S22.
Now, sources from South Korea have announced that the Exynos 2200 version of the Galaxy S22 will be available in South America and Europe. In addition, negotiations are currently underway for the appearance of this version in the United States and China through some cellular operators. The Snapdragon 898 version will be available in South Korea, Hong Kong, India and Southeast Asia.
According to the Chinese resource Mydrivers, the South Korean giant Samsung will begin mass production of the flagship Galaxy S22 smartphones in November 2021 and will release them in January 2022.
