For the Galaxy S23, Samsung may go with a MediaTek processor

Galaxy S23

For some Galaxy S23 models and the Galaxy s22 FE, the South Korean company could use MediaTek processors.

A recent rumour from BusinessKorea says that Samsung might switch from Exynos chips to MediaTek chips in its next flagship phones. This would enable the South Korean business to compete with the most powerful processors offered by Qualcomm and Apple. The company’s own SoCs do not give the same level of performance. Despite the fact that the company is collaborating with AMD to strengthen the GPU in its most recent model. Also, less money spent on making their smartphones.

Some of Samsung’s entry-level and mid-range smartphones have had MediaTek processors for a while. But high-end phones have always had chips from the American company Qualcomm or processors made by Exynos, depending on where the phone is sold. In this case, it is likely that only some of the Galaxy S23 will be sold with MediaTek SoC. These are likely the ones that will be sold in Asia. On the other hand, the rest might come with the newest Qualcomm chip. This same plan would work for the Galaxy S22 FE as well.

We don’t know which CPUs will be in Samsung’s two smartphones announced this year or in 2023. But everything points to the Dimensity 8100 and Dimensity 9000. (or later versions). In fact, both SoCs have been shown to work very well. Even Samsung’s most powerful chip and, in some cases, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 can’t keep up with them.

Samsung might use MediaTek chips in the Galaxy S23

Both the MediaTek Dimensityy 8100 and the Dimensity 9000 are very good at saving energy. Even bigger than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the Exynos 2220, and the A15 Bionic chip from Apple, which are its main competitors. The 3DMark benchmark test shows that the Dimensity 8100 performs better per watt than the Apple SoC by 59 notches, the Qualcomm chip by 124 points, and the Eynos 2200 by 146 points.

On the other hand, the Dimensity 9000 beats the A15 Bionic chip in 3DMark’s performance-per-watt score by 79 points. The same goes for the Snapdragon 8 gen 1, which has 144 less points than the MediaTek SoC we just talked about. Last, the Dimensity 9000 has 166 more points than the Exynos 2200.

Samsung is also working on making its own chips for its smartphones. These would only come with some Galaxy models, just like Apple and Google do with their own SoCs, unlike the Exynos, which can be made by any company.
