Exynos 2400 chip for Samsung Galaxy S24 possibly more powerful than thought

After a one-time switch to the Qualcomm Snapdragon, Samsung may return to its Exynos processor, starting with the Galaxy S24. Rumors about that Exynos 2400 chip are now beginning to gain steam.

As in previous years, Samsung may reintroduce models with a Snapdragon and an Exynos processor. The US and Asia will get Qualcomm's Snapdragon, while the rest will get Samsung's Exynos chip. Because the latter proved inferior to Qualcomm, it could invariably count on much criticism, mainly in Europe, where the Exynos version was sold.

Samsung seemed to have done something about that by entirely switching to Snapdragon for the S23 series, but it has found another solution. Make a much more powerful chip—and the Exynos 2400 promises to do just that. In detail, the efficiency cores run at a higher clock speed than previously believed.

Higher clock speeds

According to a post by @UniverseIce, the Exynos 2400 consists of ten cores spread across four clusters;

  • 1x Cortex-X4 (high performance core) at 3.16 GHz
  • 2x Cortex-A720 (premium efficient core) at 2.9 GHz
  • 3x Cortex-A720 (premium efficient core) at 2.6 GHz
  • 4x Cortex-A520 (high efficient core) at 1.95 GHz

The Galaxy S24 model containing the Exynos 2400 will "100% come to Europe," according to the same @UniverseIce. So don't act surprised when Samsung introduces the S24.

Exynos vs Snapdragon

Whether this makes the Exynos 2400 more powerful than the next-generation Snapdragon remains to be seen. Also, Qualcomm is expected to make progress. Besides, being powerful is only one side of the story. In the past, the Exynos equivalent overheated more quickly and, more often than not, consumed more energy than its Qualcomm counterpart.
