Mysterious Samsung phone appears on Geekbench with Exynos 2300

Last year we had many ups and downs in the rumor mill when it comes to the Samsung Exynos 2300 SoC. The Exynos 2200 failed to meet expectations, and for that reason, Samsung sent the Snapdragon 8 Gen1-equipped Galaxy S22 smartphones to more countries than usual. In November last year, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series. Qualcomm was the first to confirm and not Samsung – The Korean firm probably was not happy with the decision of leaving a possible Exynos 2300 behind, but after the Exynos 2200, it decided to go through this route. Right now, we are seeing many rumors about the Exynos 2400 which could come in the next year for some units of the Galaxy S24 series. However, it seems that Samsung is not really done with the Exynos 2300 has not been completely canceled.

Gizchina News of the week

To recall, the rumors about the Exynos 2300 pointed it as a 9-core CPU. It would be a big change over the usual 8-core structure used by most smartphone chipsets.  It would bring 1 x ARM Cortex-X3 core, at up to 3.09 GHz, 4 x ARM Cortex-A715 cores at up to 2.65 GHz, and 4 x ARM Cortex-A510 cores clocked at up to 2.1 GHz. Now, a Samsung chipset with similar specifications and 1+4+4 core arrangement passed by Geekbench benchmark with the SM-9190 model number.  However, the frequencies are a little different in this benchmark. We have 1 x core at 2.6 GHz, 4 x cores at up to 2.59 GHz, and 4 x cores at up to 1.82 GHz. However, don’t let this distract you, it’s normal for pre-production hardware. The actual core arrangement (again, 1+4+4) is what spoils this chipset for us.

Is this the Exynos 2300?

The Exynos 2200 uses the usual 1+3+4 config, and there is no 9-core chipset from Samsung – only the rumored Exynos 2300 and Exynos 2400. However, this shouldn’t be the Exynos 2400 because it is rumored to boast a 1+2+3+4 arrangement and a Cortex-X4 core. So we believe that this should be a pre-launch version of the Exynos 2300. What explains its appearance at this point? Well, we also have some rumors pointing to the launch of a Samsung Galaxy S23 FE.

There are not many details on the Exynos 2300 SoC, but the partnership with AMD should remain alive. Anything that goes beyond that is just speculation. We can’t confirm this on a possible Samsung Galaxy S23 FE. For now, we need to digest all these leaks with a grain of salt and wait for official info.
