Many Samsung customers could be pleased that for the S23 series a uniform processor, the “Snapdragon 8 Gen2 for Galaxy”, was finally installed for all smartphones and all regions.
When Samsung released the high-end Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphone, many European users were disappointed that they got a slightly weaker Exynos chip in this country, while the rest of the world got the Snapdragon 8 Gen1.
According to a new rumour, Samsung could return to this strategy with the next generation of Galaxy phones.

Exynos only for a limited number of regions
The new leak comes from RGcloudS and, according to its own information, is not fully confirmed.

According to him, the S24 phones will ship with the Exynos 2400 as well as the Snapdragon 8 Gen3.
However, the Samsung processor should not be installed in one of the top models, but only in the basic model – and only in certain regions.
Although this leak is not yet solid, it is plausible that Samsung is working on a new processor and will put it in a new Galaxy series.
The Exynos 2400 could be 30 percent faster than the Snapdragon 8 Gen2
In another leak shared by OreXda comes, the first Geekbench 5 scores for the Exynos 2400 have appeared.
According to this, the new Samsung processor has quite impressive performance:
- Single core: 1711
- Multi-Core: 6967
- Single core: 1530
- Multi-Core: 6210
In single-core performance, the Exynos can’t beat Apple’s A16 Bionic. In this category, the processor of the new iPhones is extremely fast (1871).
On the other hand, the Exynos 2400 can shine with very good multi-core performance. This beats the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 by about 30 percent.
So the Samsung processor doesn’t necessarily have to be a disadvantage compared to the Qualcomm processors – provided it is not plagued by bugs, crashes and stutters as was often the case with older Exynos processors.
What do you think of the rumour? Do you think Samsung will again supply Europe with Exynos chips and the rest of the world with Qualcomm processors? Tell us what you think about it in the comments!
