With the recently launched Galaxy S23 models, Samsung opted to ditch its in-house Exynos processors in favor of a custom-made Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 from Qualcomm. However, the global transition to Snapdragon may be short-lived if the leaker Ice Universe is to be believed, which reports that Samsung has approved the mass production of a new Exynos that goes by the name Exynos 2400. According to Ice Universe, this new processor will use an architecture with ten cores, specifically one Cortex-X4, two Cortex-A720 with high clock frequency, three additional Cortex-A720 lower clock frequency, and four Cortex-A520.
According to rumors, the new processor will begin mass production later this year, and that it will be used in one or more of the Galaxy S24 models that will be presented in early 2024. If Samsung plans to switch to the new Exynos processor globally or return to using Exynos as before in some markets and Snapdragon in others remains to be seen.
