What do we think?  It can be a long road from announcement to delivery, as Samsung has found out more than once—see Is Exynos once again facing a firing squad?

Samsung introduces Exynos 2400 mobile processor featuring the Xclipse 940

Samsung has unveiled its next-generation flagship mobile processor, the Exynos 2400, featuring the Xclipse 940 GPU based on AMD’s RDNA 3 architecture. Compared to its predecessor, the company claims the Exynos 2400 offers a 1.7× increase in CPU performance and an impressive 14.7× boost in AI performance. Samsung also showcased a new AI tool for text-to-image AI generation using the 2400 reference board. The processor enhances mobile gaming with advanced ray-tracing capabilities, delivering, says Samsung, improved realism and immersion through optical effects like global illumination, reflection, and shadow rendering.

The company also introduced its Zoom Anyplace technology, based on a 200 million-pixel image sensor, which the company claims will enable users to capture up to 4´ close-ups of moving objects without image degradation. AI-based tracking, says Samsung, will ensure objects are automatically followed and captured in full-screen recordings.

While there’s speculation about the Exynos 2400’s use in the Galaxy S24 series, Samsung’s agreements with Qualcomm and AMD for future mobile devices could complicate matters. Currently, the Galaxy S23 FE runs on the Exynos 2200, while the Galaxy S23 series uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform.
