Samsung is set to launch the much-anticipated the Galaxy S23 series at the Galaxy Unpacked event on February 1. Therefore, a lot of new information about these smartphones have been revealed in the past few days.
We are already aware that the devices will be powered by a custom Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset by Qualcomm. Now, thanks to a new leak, we also know the official marketing name of this silicon.
According to a source of 9to5Google, the custom Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC inside the Galaxy S23 lineup will be officially called ‘Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy’.
As per previous reports, this chipset will be clocked higher at 3.36GHz. The regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 present inside the Xiaomi 13 series and OnePlus 11 is limited to 3.2GHz.
Previously, this custom chip was rumored to be manufactured by Samsung Foundry. But now, it is said to be fabricated by TSMC, just like the standard version of the SoC.
As of now, we have no idea about the thermal performance of this custom chipset. Hopefully, it is at least on par with the regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
For those unaware, this will be the first time Samsung will be using the same silicon for the Galaxy S series worldwide since the original model.
