Promising benchmarks on the Galaxy S23 FE equipped with an Exynos 2200 suggest that Samsung may have found a way to correct the situation on its in-house chips.
Samsung recently unveiled the Galaxy S23 FE. A smartphone that prides itself on belonging to the brand’s high-end segment while making a few compromises here and there to reduce the price.
Be careful though: the Galaxy S23 FE is equipped with an Exynos 2200 chip. This will at least be the case for the European models, even if we do not yet know exactly when the phone will be launched on the Old Continent.
The integration of this chip does not really work in favor of the Galaxy S23 FE. Exynos SoCs have been heavily criticized in recent years for their significant shortcomings compared to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon. However, videographer RON TEK offers us a glimmer of hope.
Promising results on benchmarks
He was able to get his hands on an S23 FE sold in India and which is also equipped with the Exynos 2200. And good news: on renowned benchmarks like Geekbench and AnTuTu, the phone records better scores than the 2022 Galaxy S22 equipped of the same chip.
On Geekbench 6.2, the Galaxy S23 FE obtains a score of 1612 in single-core and 4005 in multi-core. In comparison, the benchmark platform’s archives indicate results of 1269 and 3784 respectively for the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
On the AnTuTu side, RON TEK observes a score of 329,165 for the CPU and 437,040 for the GPU. As pointed out ITHomethese are results 10% and 30% higher than for the Galaxy s22 Ultra.
A good sign for the Galaxy S24s?
While the future Galaxy S24s are expected from January 2024, the latter should sign a return of Exynos chips on European models of Samsung smartphones.
This small improvement of the old Exynos chip on the S23 FE perhaps bodes well for Samsung’s next chips? We want to believe in it, but without getting too enthusiastic or risk falling from a height.
