Samsung delayed the launch of the Exynos 2200 which was first believed to make its introduction last January 11. Now, a Samsung official reached out to Business Korea to clarify that the Exynos 2200 launch was rescheduled to coincide with the release of the Galaxy S22 series.
“We are planning to unveil the new application processor at the time of launching a new Samsung smartphone. There are no problems with the AP’s production and performance,” said the official.
The official looked at the ARM Mali-G78 MP14 as the culprit for the issues experienced by the Exynos 2100. He mentioned, “The new GPU is expected to resolve the problems of the Exynos 2100. We intend to sharpen our competitiveness by loading GPUs for games into mobile devices.”
The Exynos 2200 will be the first smartphone chip that uses an AMD RDNA 2 architecture that will introduce ray tracing.
Samsung has yet to announce when the Galaxy S22 series will debut but Korean media mention that it is expected to take place on February 8.
