Samsung recently launched its latest flagship smartphone series, the Galaxy S24, globally on January 17. The new series consists of three models: the Galaxy S24, the Galaxy S24 Plus, and the Galaxy S24 Ultra. However, not all regions will get the same processor variants.
Some will get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, the latest and most powerful chipset from Qualcomm. While others (like the Philippines and India) will get the Exynos 2400, the first chipset from Samsung to feature an AMD GPU.
Now, we know not everyone is keen on the Exynos chipset. So those looking for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 variant of the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ can get them outside the Philippines, namely, in the following countries: US, Canada, China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Variants from Taiwan and Hong Kong are probably your best bet to be the most compatible with our local telecommunications networks.
The Galaxy S24 Ultra, on the other hand, will come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy in all regions. Since this is the most premium and expensive model in the series, it makes sense that Samsung wants to offer the best performance and features to its customers.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 variant is in demand because it is the first mobile platform to feature generative AI, which is one of the key innovations of the Galaxy S24 series. Therefore, it is understandable why many enthusiasts prefer it.
Moreover, last year’s Galaxy S23 Series was powered by Snapdragon chips and received positive feedback from users and critics.
The Exynos 2400, on the other hand, promises to deliver better performance and efficiency, in contrast to the previous Exynos models.
Although the exact difference in performance between the Snapdragon and Exynos chipsets is not yet clear, early reports and reviews about the Exynos variant are promising.
Whichever chipset you choose, the Galaxy S24 Series is expected to be a huge success for Samsung.
