Fans of Samsung's Galaxy S series in India have strongly opined that getting the Exynos variants of the phones put them at a disadvantage. It appears, however, that there'll be no cause for such complaints next year, as a new leak indicates that the Indian models of the Galaxy S22 series will be equipped with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

Samsung is slated to launch the Galaxy S22 series in February, keeping with the traditional release period for phones in the series. Specs and details of the phones have mostly been revealed, but the latest leak provides some more information that will thrill fans of the lineup in India.

According to tipster Front Tron, Samsung is set to bring the Galaxy S22 series to the Indian market with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Samsung has typically sold its flagship phones in India with its in-house Exynos chipsets. That that looks geared to change with the Galaxy S22 series, though, as the phones look likely to ditch the upcoming Exynos 2200 in favor of Qualcomm's offering.

Samsung's Exynos 2200 will be a big step-up from the Exynos 2100, especially in the GPU department. The Exynos 2200 will use AMD's mRDNA GPU but yield rates seem to be inadequate, which would be a plausible reason for Samsung shipping the Galaxy S22 series with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in more markets this time out. Either way, considering the disappointing performances of recent Exynos flagship chipsets, Samsung fans in India are more likely to be thrilled by this development.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
