Ever since Samsung announced an Exynos-related event on November 19, rumors were rife that the company is planning to launch Exynos 2200 chipset, but now a tweet has been shared via Samsung Exynos’ Twitter handle which rebuts these rumors completely.
So instead of Exynos-related events, Samsung hints at some announcements around its semiconductor social account. This still doesn’t tell us clearly what we are to expect. Anyways, let’s wait and watch.
Meanwhile, in related news, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has been spotted on the Google Play Console by tipster Mukul Sharma. Various specs have also been revealed.
This chipset is expected to power Samsung’s flagship S22 Series that will be launched next year. It will run on an AMD GPU with support for features like ray tracing, variate-rate shading, etc. It is claimed to be based on a 4nm process featuring an ARM Cortex-X2 prime core and 3 medium-performance cores alongside 4 efficiency cores.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is expected to be launched in January next year and before its launch, the smartphone has been seen gaining various certifications. In the past, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE was spotted on Geekbench listing and was also seen getting a TKDN certification with the model number SM-G990E.
Now Mukul Sharma has spotted S21 FE on Google Play Console listing and Google supported devices list. The listing shows that the smartphone will be available in Snapdragon 888 as well as Exynos 2100 variants.
