Samsung brings a lot of improvements to the Android phone market with its devices. According to claims, the company will launch the next flagship phone series with an overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra will have the newest Snapdragon chipset, but powered by Samsung. Thanks to this chipset, Samsung beats Apple’s iPhones in terms of performance and efficiency. Here are the details.
Samsung Galaxy S23 will have a better performance than Apple iPhones
Qualcomm’s latest chipset brings a new process to the Android market. Although the devices with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 haven’t launched yet, the chipset will be a new for the flagship phones. Additionally, Samsung builds a powered version of this chipset for its Galaxy S23 line. This feature will make the phone series more powerful than Apple’s A14 chipset and makes it close to the A16 chipset.
Samsung’s overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset beats A15 chipset, but A16 chipset is still on the top. Here are the results:
- With 1,465 single-core and 5,180 multi-core, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is now set to match/surpass Apple’s vanilla iPhone flagship for the first time in history
- With 1,725 single-core and 4,635 multi-core, Apple’s A15 Bionic from the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 might fall slightly behind the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the Galaxy S23
- For the record, the A16 Bionic chip powering the iPhone 14 Pro has a single-core score of 1,875 and a multi-core score of 5,375, which puts it on top of the food chain
The new powered chipset has also more power than Samsung’s previous Exynos chipset version of the Galaxy S22.
- According to leaked Geekbench 5 scores, which test CPU performance, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 should bring at least 25% better single-core score and a whopping 45% better multi-core score compared to the Exynos 2200 from the Galaxy S22. We will have a detailed result when the processor is ready.
- CPU aside, leaked GFX benchmarks (testing graphics performance) show that compared to the Exynos 2200, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is improved by at least 60% while being at least 85% more efficient. Even if these numbers are not announced officially, we can still have an idea about the coming powered chipset.
