Samsung Exynos 2200 vs Snapdragon 8 Gen 1: Poll shows overwhelming majority wants a Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S22 in Europe

Teaser
An unofficial poll by a noted leaker has offered up a damning result for the Exynos 2200 SoC from Samsung. While benchmark results for the chip have shown it holding up well against the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, it was not enough to sway thousands of voters who want to see a Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S22 in Europe.

There’s barely a month left before Samsung officially unleashes the Galaxy S22 series upon the world, and the smartphone range is currently beset by a flood of rumors mostly concerning the chipsets involved. It has been alleged that Samsung’s own Exynos 2200 has been postponed (and possibly even canceled), leaving the South Korean OEM with the option of utilizing Snapdragon processors across the board for the Galaxy S22 or at least for certain models.

A poll put together by Ice universe, who has been instrumental in sparking the flurry of rumors about the S22 series, asked this question: “For European Samsung users, do you want Galaxy S22 to adopt Exynos or Snapdragon in Europe?”. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the overwhelming majority went for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 option, which attracted 81.3% of the vote and left just 18.7% for the Exynos. With 21,285 votes cast, this means 17,305 for the Qualcomm chip and just 3,980 for the Samsung/AMD-designed Exynos 2200.

The same source has been stirring the pot again, despite a report claiming Samsung was still going to go ahead with the Exynos 2200 launch but delayed until the Unpacked event taking place on either February 8 or 9. The leaker states “Just after canceling the self-developed CPU architecture, it [Samsung] encountered a possibly worse arm X1 architecture. X2 is still very bad.” Cortex-X1 cores featured on the Exynos 2100 while the Exynos 2200 apparently gets an X2 CPU core.
