European versions of Samsung Galaxy S22 will be much more powerful than American and Chinese

 The editor of the well-known resource XDA Developers, Max Weinbach, on his Twitter page published information that had already been circulated through various channels before. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 series, consisting of the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 +, and Galaxy S22 Ultra, will be powered by Snapdragon 898 SoC and Exynos 2200 in different regions of the world.

Historically, much of the world has always received Exynos-based versions of the flagship Galaxy S smartphones, while the US and China have received Snapdragon versions. In this regard, the American and Chinese versions of the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 +, and Galaxy S22 Ultra will be significantly inferior in terms of graphics capabilities to the European versions of smartphones.

This is because the Exynos 2200 will include a powerful AMD GPU with support for ray tracing technology, which should significantly improve the visuals in modern games.

Both the Snapdragon 898 and the Exynos 2200 will be manufactured by Samsung using a 4nm process. Verizon has reportedly already asked Samsung to ship flagship Exynos 2200-based models to the leading wireless provider in the United States. So far, negotiations are underway.

The main reason the US market has traditionally received Snapdragon-powered Galaxy flagship models has to do with US cellular networks using technology patented by Qualcomm. That leaves Samsung with a choice: the company can either use the Snapdragon SoC in the US or spend the money to license Samsung's technology.
