Ice Universe has confirmed the Exynos 2400’s existence and stated that it will be featured in Galaxy S24 smartphones sold in Europe and Asia. This suggests Samsung will go back to its old ways and reserve its Snapdragon chips for North America and China.

A fresh Geekbench listing confirmed the existence of a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered Galaxy S24+. It remains to be seen if Samsung will use the stock chip or have a custom variant like last year’s Galaxy S23 models. However, its Exynos 2400 variant is yet to show up on any benchmarks. Those doubting its reality will be pleased to know that prolific leaker Ice Universe has signed off on it.

The leaker says it will be used to power Galaxy S24 phones in “Europe and some parts of Asia”, indicating Samsung could go back to its old ways by reserving the Snapdragon-powered flagships for North America and China. The fate of its home country, South Korea, remains uncertain, as an earlier leak said the Galaxy flagships sold there would be powered by the Exynos 2400.

Performance-wise, the Exynos 2400 is said to beat the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in the GPU department thanks to its RDNA2-based Xclipse 920. However, a now-deleted Tweet from the same leaker says its GPU, ISP and NPU could fall behind. Its multi-core showing could be better, too, thanks to its ten CPU cores. Whether or not it can keep up with the Qualcomm flagship in single-core remains to be seen.

Then again, it mostly boils down to how much better Samsung’s 4LPP+ node is compared to its previous iterations because that will determine how fast Samsung can push the Exynos 2400. After all, TSMC is still ahead of Samsung Foundry in 4 nm yields, while the same can’t be said for 3 nm.
