The Galaxy S22 series will make its debut on February 9. Ahead of launch, however, a new report brings information that will gladden the hearts of expectant Indian fans. Supposedly, the trio of flagships will ditch the Exynos 2200 in favor of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 when they come to India.`

Samsung has typically sold its Galaxy S-series phone across the world with different chipsets, with the Indian market getting an Exynos-powered model just like Europe. That may be set to change this year, however, if new reports are anything to go by.

Supposedly, Samsung is set to sell the Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra in India with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 instead of an Exynos 2200. That should excite fans of the series in that region, as public opinion leans towards dissatisfaction with the Exynos chipsets. India also happens to be the world's second-largest market, so improving sales in that market should be an attractive proposition for Samsung.

This report isn't baseless either. A while ago, official marketing material for the Galaxy S22 series confirmed regional availability of the two SoC variants, with South-East Asia listed with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. There may be a geographical debate on whether India belongs to South-East or South-West Asia, however, but it appears that the region will get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 either way.
