We’ve heard details about the upcoming flagship Exynos 2400 already, but it seems like Samsung is also working on what is likely the Exynos 2300.
Last we hear about the Exynos 2300, it was said to rock a rather odd 9-core CPU setup, including one prime Cortex-X3 core, clocked at up to 3.09 GHz, four Cortex-A715 cores, working at 2.65 GHz and four Cortex-A510 ones, with a 2.1 GHz max frequency. A very similar 1+4+4 chip has now appeared in a mysterious Samsung device on GeekBench, going by the SM-S919O model number. While the reported CPU frequencies don’t match the expected ones, that’s pretty normal for pre-production hardware. The actual core configuration is a lot more telling and points to a currently unannounced chip, given that the Exynos 2200 uses a 1+3+4 config, while the Exynos 2400 is expected to bring a 1+2+3+4 config with a Cortex-X4 at the helm.
The only other thing we know about the alleged Exynos 2300 is that it will use a semi-design based on AMD’s RDNA2 architecture for its GPU. Anything beyond that is speculation, but since we are already speculating, we can potentially hope to see this new chip inside the upcoming Galaxy S23 FE instead of the rumored Exynos 2200. Only time will tell.
