In recent years, Samsung has regularly taken a two-pronged approach to its flagship smartphones. Both the latest Snapdragon processors in the USA were used as well as the in-house top Exynos chips in models for the European market and parts of Asia. The Galaxy S23 series breaks with this tradition and uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, currently the fastest Android chipset, instead of the Exynos 2300. However, the Exynos 2300 should at least power the Samsung Galaxy S22 FE. However, the first reports are now emerging that Samsung will bring its own chips back to its flagships. The Samsung Galaxy S24 series is set to return to the old pattern with the Exynos 2400.
Accordingly, the mass production of the Samsung Exynos 2400 should begin in November this year. Three months later, Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy S24 series, but the new chipset will reportedly only power the South Korean versions. There are currently two theories on the design of the Samsung Exynos 2400. There is a report that the chip will use an 8-core architecture with one prime core, four performance cores and three efficiency cores. Another report claims that Samsung plans as many as ten cores with a 1+2+3+4 architecture.
Either way, the Exynos 2400 in the Samsung Galaxy S24 will have a Cortex X4 main core. The performance cores should be based on the Cortex A720 design and the efficiency cores on the Cortex A510. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 switched from three to four performance cores and from four to three efficiency cores for the first time. The performance cores run at 2.8 GHz and the efficiency cores at 2.0 GHz. The new Exynos CPU in the Samsung Galaxy S24 will apparently adopt this design.
