Galaxy S24 series will use an exclusive ‘Snapdragon for Galaxy’ chipset

Samsung is preparing to launch their latest Galaxy S24 series with an exclusive snapdragon for Galaxy variant chipset. The S23 series also had a snapdragon for galaxy processor which has a higher 3.36GHz clock speed compared to the 3.2GHz on the regular version.

Earlier we had the Geekbench score for the Galaxy 24+ which confirmed the use of 8 gen 3 but we didn’t know if it was a special variant or not. A new listing on Geekbench which is believed to be the upcoming RedMagic 9 shows it has a different 8 Gen 3 variant. It uses a (2+5+1) core configuration. For reference the S24+ had a (2+2+3+1) core configuration. The Galaxy variant also appears to be overclocked.

This more or less confirms that the S24 series will use the ‘Snapdragon for Galaxy’ variant. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy has two Cortex A520 clocked at 2.27GHz, two Cortex A720 running at 2.96GHz, three Cortex A720 at 3.15GHz and a single Cortex X4 core clocked at 3.3GHz.

For comparison the regular snapdragon Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 on the RedMagic 9 has two Cortex A520 clocked at 2.27GHz, five Cortex A720 at 2.96GHz and a single Cortex X4 running at 3.19GHz. The RedMagic 9 scored 1596 on single-core and 5977 on multi-core and the S24+ scored 2233 on single-core and 6661 on multi-core which is 10% higher score than the regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy might not be fully exclusive to Samsung because we have seen the RedMagic 8s pro released two months ago uses a snapdragon 8 Gen 2 advanced edition which is the same as the 8 gen 2 for Galaxy variant. So Qualcomm might also release the 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy edition to other OEMs in the 2nd half next year.
