Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 may be different from Galaxy S23

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 on the phone


  • The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the Galaxy S23 series might be a little different.
  • Rumors suggest that it will be overclocked along with feature improvements for Samsung phones.
  • The brand could be “Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy.”

Over the past year, rumors have swirled about it samsung One version of Galaxy S23 series. Unlike previous years, there may not be an Exynos-powered model, which results in every market getting a Snapdragon model.

Now, a new leak (via 9to5Google) gives more credence to this rumor. According to the leak, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the Galaxy S23 series could be a slightly modified model. For example, the clock can be overclocked from the usual 3.2 GHz to a slightly faster 3.36 GHz. It can also contain hidden tweaks that cater specifically to Samsung phones.

Rumors also suggest that the branding used for this specialized version of the processor could be “Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy.” In theory, this would be the wording Samsung would use when promoting the product to differentiate it from other phones with the regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 on board.

If Samsung is going so far as to share the processor with Qualcomm, it would be very strange if they also release an Exynos-based version of the Galaxy S23 series. This is the strongest evidence yet that all regions could get a Snapdragon model this year. If this pans out, it will be the first time we’ve seen this much unification in the Galaxy S series.

Regardless, it seems likely that those who get the Snapdragon model will get a custom processor for their phones. We’ll need to wait and see how much difference this makes or doesn’t make with normal phone use.
