Samsung’s own flagship chipset, tentatively named Exynos 2200, is expected to arrive before February 2022, when the Galaxy S22 series is rumored to launch. The chipset usually arrives a month or so before the flagship phones, and the company recently confirmed it will indeed launch “early next year”.
Samsung said it is preparing a “small gift for fans who love gaming” and while some of the speculations are the Exynos 2200 could be gaming-oriented, we shouldn’t exclude the option to have a version with boosted GPU.
Samsung says in the description of the teaser video is for all the fans that have been with the company through the pandemic and it shows what “togetherness” means. It is a heartwarming video about a kid that gets inoculated but still doesn’t get to see his friends, so they have to bond over a mobile game.
Interestingly enough, one poster above the child’s bed reads “2200” and we this is unlikely to be a coincidence – it is probably a hint for the upcoming Exynos.
Samsung traditionally does not tease specs like its Chinese competitors, so we have to rely on rumors about its upcoming products. We are confident the new chip will be built on the 4nm FiNFET process technology with Radeon mobile GPU. It should bring HDR gaming, ray-tracing and Variable Rate Shading to mobile games – these features are currently available only on consoles and PC right now.
