Recent reports excited Samsung fans in Europe with the idea of the Galaxy S22 Ultra being shipped with the Snapdragon Gen 1 across all regions. New information might just have put paid to those thoughts, however, as it now appears that the Galaxy S22 series will ship with the Exynos 2200 in Europe.

Yesterday, reports surfaced claiming that Samsung now planned to equip the Galaxy S22 Ultra with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in all regions, instead of the Exynos 2200. While those reports were always to be taken with a grain of salt, word on the grapevine now indicates that they may have been false.

According to Ishan Agarwal, the Galaxy S22 series is expected to continue with the Exynos 2200 in European markets, with the leaker name-dropping the UK specifically. Aforementioned previous reports purported that the Galaxy S22 Ultra specifically would be the one to get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 across all regions, but this bluntly indicates otherwise. 

It's always difficult when two leaks contradict each other but Ishan Agarwal has earned a pretty solid reputation in the business, so it seems more probable that his information is correct. From all indications, it appears that Europe will get the Exynos 2200 as is traditionally expected. The chipset may have been delayed but is likely to make its debut alongside the phones. None of these are officially confirmed at the moment, though, so we'll keep you updated.

Buy the Samsung Galaxy S21 on Amazon.
