Samsung is expected to unveil the next-generation Galaxy S-series flagship phones in the beginning of next year, January or February 2021. Similar to the S21 series, the upcoming Galaxy S22 series is likely to include three models – Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra. While we wait for official confirmation, the Galaxy S22+ has been spotted on Geekbench along with some of its key specifications.
According to the Geekbench listing, the Galaxy S22+ carries model number SM-S906B. The phone is powered by “s5e9925” code-named chipset which is Samsung’s Exynos 2200 SoC. The listing reveals that Exynos 2200 chip is integrated with AMD GPU. A few months ago, Samsung announced that it will start using AMP GPU in the future Exynos chip. Now, it seems, Exynos 2200 will be the first AMD-powered chip from Samsung.
As per the Geekbench report, Exynos 2200 SoC has one prime CPU core clocked at 2.59GHz. This is Cortex-X2 prime core, which is an improvement over the Cortex-X1 in Exynos 2100 SoC. Notably, the Cortex-X1 core in Exynos 2100 has a 2.91GHz clock speed, which has been reduced to 2.59GHz in Exynos 2200’s Cortex-X2. The three performance cores in Exynos 2200 have a clock speed of 2.5GHz and four power-efficient cores operate at 1.73GHz.
The Galaxy S22+ will boot Android 12 out of the box with One UI 4.0 skin at the top. The 8GB variant was tested on benchmarking platform Geekbench, where the device has scored 1,073 points in the single-core and 3,389 points in the multi-core tests. The scores are not impressive yet, but Samsung is likely to improve the performance when the device gets launched.
