  • A new report details Samsung’s alleged smartphone shipping schedule for 2022.
  • The plan specifies which chipsets Samsung wants to use in its upcoming model line.
  • The majority of Samsung devices run on Qualcomm and Exynos silicon.

According to a new report from Korea, Samsung will again rely heavily on Qualcomm chipsets in its 2022 smartphones and tablets, with Exynos hardware playing second fiddle.

Citing details from Samsung’s 2022 smartphone delivery schedule, The Elec said nearly half of Samsung’s mobile devices to hit the market in the New Year will use Qualcomm’s power. At least 31 models will run a variant of the Snapdragon SoC, while 20 will use Exynos chipsets. Another 13 will use MediaTek silicon, while only three will contain Unisoc internal components.

This breakdown isn’t surprising, but it differs from reports suggesting that the company was planning a significant increase in Exynos usage across its lineup in 2022. Samsung has generally favored Qualcomm silicon, with its recent flagships using both the American company’s SoCs and its in-house Exynos chips.

What chipsets will Samsung’s 2022 devices use?

The Elec suggests the Galaxy S22 hits the market with Qualcomm’s next flagship chipset, which is currently dubbed the Snapdragon 898. While Qualcomm’s newest flagship chipset is likely to hit the market by the end of the month, Samsung is planning to launch the flagship with the rumored Exynos 2200 SoC as well. to offer. It is unclear how the two SoCs will stack up.

What about Samsung’s other devices? You can also expect the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 to run the Snapdragon 898. The Galaxy S22 FE will exclusively run the Exynos 2200, as will the Galaxy Tab S8 series. The Galaxy S21 FE will land with the Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888.

Finally, there are a few details about Samsung’s mid-range devices. The Galaxy A53 and A33 will launch with a chipset made by Samsung, while the Galaxy A73 will reportedly land with the Snapdragon 778G. Samsung has already used this silicon in the Galaxy M52.

Samsung’s plans for 2022 are likely in full swing, but it’s unclear how the global chipset shortage could affect them. According to Canalys and Counterpoint data, the company’s shipments fell sharply in the third quarter of 2021 due to silicon hunger.
