As is tradition, Samsung announces its flagship Exynos chipset a few weeks ago. This generally happens before the launch of new Galaxy S-series smartphone. In a very subtle or teasing Instagram post, Samsung will unveil its next-gen flagship chipset as early as next week. According to a teaser post, Samsung claims to be ready to show the “future of entertainment”. It also mentions the date Friday, November 19, 2021 in the post.
Exynos 2200: What we know so far
However, Samsung Exynos has now tweeted that there is no Exynos-related event planned for November 19. “Despite the rumours, we don’t have any Exynos-related events planned on 11/19, but we do have some changes coming to our social accounts,” the Samsung Exynos account tweeted. The company did not reveal any further details but hinted at an announcement expected from the company’s semiconductor division. If not the Exynos 2200, the company could unveil the successor of the Exynos 1080.
The company is expecting to launch the Exynos 2200 chipset, the first Exynos chipset or processor with an AMD GPU. Moreover, the company hinted towards the announcement date for its next Exynos flagship. They also mention that gaming started with arcade games. But it has come a long way to current-generation games with high-end graphics. In addition, it also says it wants to show “what entertainment will look like in the future”. The last image in the post says, “Everything changes on November 19, 2021”.
Now, from what we assume, we can expect the launch of Exynos 2200 chipset on November 19, 2021. As the cryptic posts hints at the future of gaming graphics, Exynos 2200 AMD RDNA2-based Radeon Mobile GPU supports high-end gaming features like ray tracing and VRS (variable-rate shading). The company might also unveil a mid-range chipset such as the Exynos 1250.
Although the company didn’t reveal the specifications of the Exynos 2200. However, various rumours that this next generation chip will be based on a 4nm manufacturing process by Samsung Foundry. Moreover, this Exynos chipset may feature one ARM Cortex-X2 performance core, three Cortex-A710 cores and four Cortex-A510 efficiency cores. The chip is tipped to support 144Hz displays, the latest generations of wireless connectivity through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and of course, 5G connectivity.
Meanwhile, Qualcomm is also expected to unveil its own future generation chip before the end of 2021. Let us wait and see what both the companies unveil in the upcoming weeks and months.
