San Francisco, Jan 20 (IANS) Samsung Galaxy S22 series has been spotted with Exynos processors, suggesting that the company’s upcoming flagship smartphones will sport the newly announced chipset under the hood.

Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra are expected to arrive with either Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC or the Exynos 2200 SoC, depending on the region.
