New Galaxy S23 leak teases massive performance gains over S22


Recommended Posts

Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus

Samsung will reportedly unveil the Galaxy S23 series on February 1st. As such, we should expect plenty of leaks as the launch event approaches. Samsung always struggles to keep its new smartphones secret, but the Galaxy S23 rumors are all the more interesting, as Samsung is looking to put the Galaxy S22 performance issues behind it. And a new Galaxy S23 leak tells us we should expect significant speed gains over its predecessor.

All three S23 models will feature the same high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 System-on-Chip (SoC). There’s no Exynos 2300 to throttle this time. That should guarantee uniform performance across the board and across international markets.

In previous years, the US models would get Snapdragon SoCs. International Galaxy S variants would run on Samsung’s Exynos chips. The Exynos 2200 turned out to be a big disappointment this year, leading to a big scandal. Users found that Samsung throttled the Galaxy S22 performance and the phone was cheating in benchmarks.

Since 4nm is mentioned, it must be TSMC technology. It is impossible for Samsung's 4nm to run at such a high frequency. Therefore, the rumors of the previous Samsung 4nm have been smashed. https://t.co/U5xOuZxThx

Recent Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 benchmark indicated Qualcomm’s new chip will put up an even better fight against Apple’s A16 Bionic SoC that powers the iPhone 14 Pros.

Moreover, the Galaxy S23 will get an exclusive Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 version. The chip is clocked slightly higher than the chips powering non-Samsung devices.

But even so, the early benchmarks teased performance differences between the base model and the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

As we explained before, the early benchmarks might show lower scores than the Galaxy S23 units that will hit stores running finalized software. A leaker provided actual figures that tease the massive performance gains of the Galaxy S23.

💥CPU 36%
💥GPU 48%
💥NPU 60%

The 4nm processor with cooling systems will improve performance battery consumption&heat under heavy use

In my opinion enjoy always have Snapdragon with Samsung😍 pic.twitter.com/l5YYs29yjV

According to the tweet above, all three models will have a CPU that’s 36% faster than last year’s model. The GPU and NPU performance should see even more formidable gains, at 48% and 60%, respectively. It’s unclear where these percentage gains come from, however.

The leaker indicates the Galaxy S23 will have a better cooling system than the S22, which should improve heat dissipation and reduce battery consumption. Reports this year speculated Samsung resorted to throttling the Exynos 2200 Galaxy S22 as the phone lacked a proper cooling system. Cooling remains a worry for the Galaxy S23 as well.

      The Galaxy S22 has been a big success for Samsung so far, but the new flagship series isn’t without problems or controversies. The latest issue concerns the Galaxy S22 Ultra, as Samsung’s new Note model seems unable to hold a GPS connection.
      That’s the kind of problem that would impact any app that relies on location data. You’ll need GPS for Google Maps and other navigation apps. And you’ll also be using it whenever you want to share your location with someone else.

      Before we get to the GPS issues, let’s look at the Galaxy S22’s other problems.
      I’ve recently highlighted four reasons not to buy the Galaxy S22, even when better price deals arrive. One of those concerns the Galaxy S22’s ability to survive drops, but it’s immediately fixable. The Galaxy S22 Ultra seems especially fragile in such accidents. You can reduce the risk by getting protective accessories from the first day.
      We then have Samsung misleading buyers regarding the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus display efficiency. Similarly, the 45W fast charging support available on the Plus and the Galaxy S22 Ultra seems to be a marketing gimmick.
      The most important issue concerns the phone’s performance. The throttling issue that was widely covered in the past few weeks might be hiding a more significant problem with Samsung’s flagships. It might be a chip a cooling issue. Samsung said in an explanation to shareholders that it hasn’t been cutting costs, however.
      That’s to say that the Galaxy S22 series is already drawing attention for the kind of faults you wouldn’t expect from a flagship. The GPS signal loss problem falls in the same category.

      Addressing camera quality issues, leaker Ice Universe also observed on Twitter that the Galaxy S22 is the best-selling Samsung flagship in years. But also the one suffering from the most problems. The leaker previously criticized Samsung for the throttling issue.
      The GPS connectivity complaints come from elsewhere, however. Android World detailed the problem, explaining that Galaxy S22 Ultra users would encounter GPS issues from the first boot. The problem can persist even after updates, and the GPS won’t work.
      A post on a Samsung Community forum in Europe has some 202 replies showing that some Galaxy S22 Ultra buyers have experienced the GPS problem. But the issue doesn’t appear to be widespread at the moment.
      There’s no fix for it either. The blog notes that resetting the APN settings might work. You can also consider resetting network settings. Whatever it is, it might be a problem with the phone rather than apps that need location data to work.
      If you’ve experienced any Galaxy S22 Ultra GPS issues, you can consider reaching out to Samsung for help.
