Ex-Samsung employee turned insider Super Roader alleged that Samsung may be ditching the Exynos 2200 in favor of the Snapdragon 898. Until now, Samsung has shipped its flagship phones with Exynos chips in all markets except the US and some other countries where it uses Snapdragon SoCs. Reportedly, the ongoing chip shortage is making it hard for Samsung to procure enough Exynos chips for the upcoming Galaxy S22 phones.

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S22 phones are probably the most leaked pieces of tech in 2021. Thanks to leaks and rumors from trustworthy sources, we have a pretty good idea about the design and the internals of the Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra. But recent leaks from an ex-Samsung employee turned serial leaker, Super Roader, suggest that Samsung may be getting ready to surprise its fanbase early next year.

According to LetsGoDigital, Super Roader has claimed that Samsung will launch all Galaxy S22 models with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 instead of the heavily anticipated Exynos 2200. If the leak is true, this will be the first time since the Galaxy S5 that Samsung opts to go exclusively with a Snapdragon processor. Qualcomm is gearing up to launch the Snapdragon 898 on November 30.

But why would Samsung decide to ditch Exynos 2200 in favor of the Snapdragon 898? Super Roader alleges that the chip shortage is the biggest roadblock in the development of the Exynos 2200. Reportedly, Samsung is finding it hard to produce enough Exynos chips for its flagship phones. Roader also claims that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S22 series on February 8, 2022.

Having said all of this, we should take this information with a big grain of salt. Samsung’s strategy of launching a Snapdragon flagship for the US along with some other markets and an Exynos version for the rest of the globe has worked well for the company. So, although Samsung may launch the Snapdragon Galaxy S22 models in more regions than the previous year, it is highly unlikely that it will ditch the Exynos version altogether.
