Rumor | Samsung's Exynos 2400 and Exynos 2500 plans revealed in new leak
More tentative details of the Exynos 2400 appeared on the grapevine earlier in the week. According to those reports, the Exynos 2400 could arrive later this year and power a Galaxy S24 series model next year. A new report appears to call some of that into doubt, however.
Going by a series of tweets from leaker OreXda today, it now seems that the rumored Exynos 2400 may actually be the Exynos 2500 or, at least, a 2025-bound chipset from Samsung designed to power the Galaxy S25 series. Supposedly, the Exynos 2300 has been canceled—likely putting reports of a Galaxy S22 FE or Galaxy Tab S8 FE featuring the chipset to rest. As for the Exynos 2400, the leaker claims that chipset faces the possibility of a cancelation just like the Exynos 2300, or could be delivered in a single prototype device.
The Exynos 2500 looks destined to be Samsung's big return to the market, with the chipset expected to feature a ten-core configuration. The Exynos 2400 was recently rumored to be built with such a setup, but there's a chance those rumors may have been about the Exynos 2500. Or, equally likely, the Exynos 2400 could be a testing bed for the Exynos 2500—particularly with recent reports claiming the chipset has been greenlit for mass production.
Either way, it looks unlikely that the Exynos 2400 will find widespread use on the Galaxy S24 series next year. That may have something to do with Qualcomm also scheduling Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 production to TSMC instead of Samsung. 2025 will be the year to watch, it appears, with an ambitious Exynos 2500 seemingly geared to arrive on the Galaxy S25 series. Supposedly, even, said chipset may not be branded as the Exynos 2500 at all.
