The Samsung Galaxy S23 could feature the greatest CPU of any Android smartphone released in 2023

For reasons we’ll go into below, it’s great news that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU is rumoured to be used internationally in Samsung’s Galaxy S23 range. In fact, it now seems like the business may go over and above by including a special, more powerful CPU in just these phones.

According to leaker @UniverseIce, who has done extensive research and uncovered many pieces of evidence to back up this allegation, this is the case.

In the first place, they released a snapshot of a benchmark for the Samsung Galaxy S23, revealing a maximum clock speed of 3.36GHz, which is faster than the 3.2GHz rates generally offered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. They then said that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 comes in a variety of model numbers.

Last but not least, they “confirmed” that Samsung’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 high-frequency variant would power the next Galaxy S23.

However, it is unclear whether or not the same supercharged chipset will be utilised in the rest of the globe, despite the fact that same processor is said to be featured in the European edition of the Samsung Galaxy S23 range.

The Galaxy S23 and its siblings may be the most powerful Android phones in Europe, however we recommend taking this claim with a grain of salt for the time being.

Improvements to the industry’s leading chipset

A superior version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 may be available only to the Samsung Galaxy S23 range, making it doubtful that any other 2023 Android phone will be able to compete. There is no indication that the greatest Snapdragon processor of 2023 will be inferior than the best chipset available for Android phones in any other year.

Therefore, it is encouraging news that Samsung will reportedly offer Snapdragon chipsets globally, rather than shipping the phones with its own Exynos chipsets in some regions, as it has done in the past; and if it is using an even better version of that chipset, then it is even more encouraging news.

Ideally, this upgraded version would be made available everywhere, but if it’s just available in Europe, that would be understandable given Europe’s history of being saddled with subpar Exynos chipsets.

All of this is terrible news for the other manufacturers releasing new phones in 2023, since Samsung currently dominates the market for Android phones and its products consistently score high in our best phones rankings; a more powerful chipset would only help the firm strengthen its position.
