Samsung is taking a two-chipset approach for the Galaxy S24 and S24+ phones featuring different SoCs depending on the market. The divide is pretty straightforward this year with markets like South Korea, the US, China and Australia getting the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered Galaxy S24 and S24+ devices while units in other markets will feature Samsung’s in-house Exynos 2400 chipset. The S24 Ultra on the other hand will come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in all regions.
We have a separate article detailing the Exynos 2400 which you can check out here.
Samsung and Qualcomm’s flagship chips are pretty close on paper – both have Cortex-X4 prime cores alongside Cortex-A720 big and medium cores and A520 efficiency cores all based on the ARMv9 architecture. The Exynos chip has lower clock speeds on all cores and boasts two extra Cortex-A520 efficiency cores at 2.0GHz speeds.
Exynos 2400 is built on the 4nm LPP+ process by Samsung Semiconductor whereas Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is fabbed on TSMC’s N4P node.
|Snapdragon 8 Gen 3
|1x Cortex-X4 @ 3.3GHz
|1x Cortex-X4 @ 3.2GHz
|3x Cortex-A720 3.2GHz
|2x Cortex-A720 @ 2.9GHz
|2x Cortex-A720 @ 3.0GHz
|3x Cortex-A720 @ 2.6GHz
|2x Cortex-A520 @ 2.3GHz
|4x Cortex-A520 @ 2.0GHz
Snapdragon-equipped Galaxy phones have historically offered better performance and battery endurance but it remains to be seen if this will again be the case for the S24 generation.
