Samsung has announced its latest flagship mobile chipset, the Exynos 2200. It is expected that the chipset will support premium smartphones from Samsung that will come later this month. Yes! This is the same chipset that the company was due to launch on January 11th but was delayed.

The announcement of the latest chipset from the South Korean electronics giant is enough to confirm that there will be a variant of the Galaxy S22 lineup powered by Exynos. Obviously, this dispels rumors that Samsung is “throwing out” the Exynos chipset.

Meanwhile, Samsung says that the Exynos 2200 is a completely new chipset, manufactured using Samsung’s 4nm EUV node. This chipset packs a CPU design with an Octa-core configuration and uses an Armv9 CPU core.

There are three CPU clusters, one Cortex-X2 flagship core, three large Cortex-A710, and four small Cortex-A510 cores. Furthermore, this chipset comes with an Xclipse GPU from Samsung, which is based on the AMD RDNA 2 architecture. Samsung boasts that this GPU will offer a “console-level” gaming experience on a smartphone.

The Xclipse graphics processing unit will offer advanced features such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable-level shadows. Ray tracing simulates how light behaves physically in the real world in games.

Meanwhile, variable level shading can lower the shading level in the game area to optimize GPU workloads. It is also equipped with several other technologies such as advanced multi-IP (AMIGO) which improves the overall performance and efficiency.

The Exynos 2200 also features improved AI thanks to the new NPU. It can be used with an image signal chip to support more realistic shooting. The ISP supports 108MP in single camera mode and offers 4K HDR and 8K video recording.

As for communication, the Exynos 2200 comes with a 3GPP Release 16 5G modem that supports sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum bands. There is E-UTRAN New Radio – Dual Connectivity (EN-DC) which utilizes 4G LTE and 5G NR signals and can increase speeds up to 10Gbps.

For security, it is also equipped with an Integrated Secure Element (iSE) to store private cryptographic keys and acts as a RoT (Root of Trust). Samsung also added that HW’s inline encryption for UFS and DRAM has been strengthened.

Samsung has also said that the Exynos 2200 is currently in mass production. Although it has not been explicitly confirmed, this chipset will support the Galaxy S22 series flagship smartphone which is expected to officially launch on February 8, along with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 powered model from Qualcomm.
