Why is Exynos 2200 worse than Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and why are Qualcomm SoCs used more widely in Galaxy S22? Samsung launched an internal investigation

Published

A few weeks before the official premiere of the Samsung Galaxy S22 flagships, there were rumors that the company would abandon its own Exynos 2200 single-chip platform in favor of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Allegedly, in terms of performance, it turned out to be completely different from what it should have been. Samsung denied these rumors, the Galaxy S22 uses both Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, but in some ways the insiders were right.

Why is Exynos 2200 worse than Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and why are Qualcomm SoCs used more widely in Galaxy S22?  Samsung launched an internal investigation

Many were surprised that in some markets where Galaxy flagships were traditionally presented with their own platform, the Galaxy S22 came out with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. In particular, this happened in India and South Korea, which are very important markets for the company. Data from recent DigiTimes and Korebizwire publications reveals why.

Samsung’s top-end single-chip systems have always been inferior in performance to Qualcomm counterparts, but the Exynos 2200 was supposed to change everything. To do this, the company even entered into a partnership agreement with AMD, which helped with the development of the GPU. In reality, Samsung failed again: Exynos 2200 is inferior to Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The second point is that the percentage of product yield is extremely low. And here we must recall the rumors that appeared last year and recently began to circulate again. Rumors that Qualcomm will entrust the production of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus to TSMC. It allegedly has a yield of 70% – and this is much more than Samsung. There is some kind of systemic problem with the production, because the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200 are manufactured by Samsung on a 4nm process.

According to Koreabizwire, Samsung initially expected to use Exynos 2200 in more than half of the Galaxy S22 smartphones, but due to the lack of these platforms, as a result of a low percentage of good products, the company was forced to switch to Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 – which is why models on the Qualcomm SoC came out in “atypical” markets.

Samsung has reportedly launched an internal investigation into the situation. First of all, in relation to the management of the division engaged in the production of single-chip systems. But probably the same will be done for SoC developers, who have been trying to catch up with Qualcomm for many years, but still can’t catch up.

Pay for the goods by touching

Recall that Tap to Pay was introduced at the beginning of the year, but it will be fully launched only at the end of the current year, and even then only in the United States for the first time.

Tap to Pay allows you to turn your iPhone into a payment terminal. As a result, you can pay for something or transfer money simply by touching one smartphone to another. Of course, the function is primarily designed for entrepreneurs.

Yesterday, a short video appeared on the Web showing how this feature is used in the Apple Park Visitor Center. Recall that this is a company store located next to the headquarters of Apple Park.

The author of the video writes that the Apple Park Visitor Center is one of the few company-branded stores in the US that works with Tap to Pay. So it looks like he’s not the only one. In any case, the full function in the US will work at the end of the year.
