Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Leaked With Faster-Clocked Version Of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

Samsung Galaxy S23 with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

The newly launched Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip adopts the new 1+2+2+3 architecture. This chip will power many smartphones. So it’s logical they appear on various benchmark websites one after another. Among them, we should mention the Samsung Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra models. The screenshots show a prime CPU core frequency of 3.36GHz, a performance core frequency of 2.80GHz, and an efficiency core frequency of 2.02GHz.

In addition to the Samsung S23 series, the VIVO X90 Pro and iQOO 11 will also come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. However, their prime core frequency is only 3.19GHz. The latter corresponds to the official number announced by Qualcomm, 3.1872GHz, to be exact.

Recently, a tipster said that the European version of the Samsung S23 series would use the “exclusive high-frequency version” of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. However, the benchmarks we’ve seen so far are from US-version models. So this could refer to the S23 devices worldwide.

Today, we got more details about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 series. It turns out the CPU’s large-core frequency will reach 3.36GHz instead of 3.2GHz. The GPU is also running at a higher frequency of 719MHz, which is higher than the standard 680MHz announced by Qualcomm.

Qualcomm occasionally releases “AC” versions, which run at a higher clock speed than the chip’s base clock frequency. For example, the model number of the Snapdragon 855 is SM8150, and the SM8150-AC is the Snapdragon 855+. The latter boosted the Prime core from 2.84GHz to 2.96GHz. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 model announced this week is SM8550-AB. In this sense, the follow-up overclocked version is SM8550-AC.

At the moment, it still remains unknown which chip the Korean company will use. It’s a bit unbelievable that Samsung will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2+ instead of the regular version because the latter always comes in the second half of the year.
