Samsung Foundry will make the overclocked Snapdragon chip for the Galaxy S23 line

Earlier this month, we told you that Samsung will reportedly use an overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset to power the upcoming Galaxy S23 series. Instead of capping the clock speed of the chip’s ultra-high-performance Cortex X-3 Prime core at 3.2GHz, the version of the component that will be found under the hood of all Galaxy S23 units is rumored to have a Cortex X-3 core running as fast as 3.32GHz.
The Cortex X-3 core will deliver up to 25% greater performance than the Cortex X-2. ARM says, “The Cortex-X Custom program enables customization and differentiation beyond the traditional roadmap of Arm Cortex products, offering our partners a way to deliver the ultimate performance required for their specific use cases.”

Traditionally, Samsung has powered the Galaxy S line with its own Exynos chips everywhere except the US, Canada, and China. But it seems that many Galaxy S buyers weren’t happy shelling out flagship prices for phones that they felt were being powered by an inferior Exynos SoC. This will be rectified this year as it seems that Qualcomm has pretty much confirmed that it will have a “global share” of the Galaxy S23 series this year.
