Samsung is set to unveil its latest flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series this 2 February and ahead of the launch, more alleged leaks are coming out regarding the lineup. The latest of which is in regard to the SoC under the hood, which would be a custom version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. 

Shared by reliable tipster Roland Quandt on Twitter, the chipset is called “Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy”, which is short for “Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy”. In the leak, Quandt showed off the modified Snapdragon logo for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, which is just the regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 logo but with “for galaxy” at its bottom. 


This modified version of the Qualcomm SoC is exclusive to the Samsung flagships, with rumours claiming that both companies have an agreement in place for custom chipsets until next year with the release of the Galaxy S24 series. Besides that, Quandt also shared the alleged specs of all 3 variants of the Galaxy S23 lineup. 

The spec sheet seems to confirm our previous report that all displays in the lineup will have max brightness of 1750 nits. Rather expectedly, the Ultra variant sports the most specced out features out of the three. 

Of course, do take this information with a grain of salt as nothing is confirmed as of yet. Well, we just have to wait a few days to find out for sure anyways.
