Samsung aims to double its Exynos shipments ahead of Galaxy S22 launch

Samsung and AMD are joining hands to work on Samsung’s new Exynos processor, which will support RDNA2 graphics — AMD’s latest graphics architecture coming to mobile devices for the first time. The new processor is rumored to be included on the future Galaxy S22, though many of those details are still up in the air. AMD gave an overview of the features and revealed that its RDNA2 will include ray tracing and variable-rate shading, allowing it to offer higher-fidelity graphics and improved power efficiency.

The latest development comes from Korea IT News and also reveals that Samsung is aiming to increase Exynos installs to 50% to 60% in Galaxy smartphones compared to the current 20%.

Galaxy S22 sales combined with other Galaxy smartphone sales numbers are forecasted to double the shipments of Samsung’s upcoming Exynos chipset (depending on the region). Reportedly, the company is “significantly” increasing the proportion of Exynos between the IM division, which is in charge of the smartphone business, and the DS division, to which the System LSI Division belongs.

Amid the deepening semiconductor shortage, Samsung plans to expand Exynos processor installs in midrange to low-end smartphones Historically, Samsung Exynos processors have been criticized for offering relatively weaker GPU performance, leading to throttling.

The AMD partnership may help Samsung better its gaming and graphics performance in the next flagship Exynos chipset, and potentially also see it power some of the upcoming Samsung laptops. It may be introduced alongside the Galaxy S22 series in early 2022. We should have a better idea in the coming months about what the S22 will boast in terms of hardware.

Why the Galaxy S23 is the small phone you’ve been waiting for
Galaxy S23 back in hand.

I think we have the wrong idea of a “compact phone.” Sure, the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini fit the bill with their 5.42-inch displays, but it’s 2023 – the era of content consumption. And In my opinion, any screen under 6 inches is too small for a regular person watching videos on their phone.

The definition of "big" phones has changed in recent years. In 2013, when the Galaxy Note 3 launched with its 5.7-inch display, it was considered huge. But a decade later, with the advancements in shrinking the bezels and phones getting bigger, I’m here telling you how a phone with a 6.1-inch display is the compact phone you’ve been waiting for.

New Galaxy S24 Ultra rumor teases a major camera upgrade
The back of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, showing the camera lenses.

It's no secret that the Galaxy S23 Ultra's cameras are impressive, but it seems like the S24 Ultra may be one-upping its predecessor. Aside from the addition of its 200MP sensor, there wasn't much of a difference between the S22 Ultra's camera array and the one found on the S23 Ultra. However, a new leak suggests that the S24 Ultra will be taking a major step to elevate camera performance.

In a post to Twitter, leaker @Tech_Reve claims that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will be ditching the S23 Ultra's 3x and 10x telephoto lenses in favor of a single 3x to 10x variable folded telephoto lens. While the change may seem subtle, the difference in what the S24 Ultra can accomplish with its camera array could be vast as a result.
