While Samsung made a really good comeback with the Exynos 2100 processor earlier this year, the chipset was still not as power-efficient as the Snapdragon 888.

According to a new report from LetsGoDigital, Samsung has decided not to use the Exynos 2200 processor in the Galaxy S22 series. The South Korean firm will reportedly use the Snapdragon 898 chipset exclusively in all the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra variants. The publication reportedly received this information from a former Samsung employee.
