Samsung Electronics has officially announced the Exynos 2200 is currently in mass production. So it appears it will be jammed into upcoming versions of the Galaxy S22.

The Exynos 2200 is Samsung’s long awaited mobile processor with AMD RDNA 2 architecture based Samsung Xclipse graphics processing unit (GPU).  

“Built on the most advanced 4-nanometer (nm) EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) process, and combined with cutting-edge mobile, GPU and NPU technology, Samsung has crafted the Exynos 2200 to provide the finest experience for smartphone users. With the Xclipse, our new mobile GPU built with RDNA 2 graphics technology from the industry leader AMD, the Exynos 2200 will redefine mobile gaming experience, aided by enhanced graphics and AI performance,” said Yongin Park, President of System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics.

“As well as bringing the best mobile experience to the users, Samsung will continue its efforts to lead the journey in logic chip innovation.”

Samsung Exynos 2200 Specs

Encodes up to 4K at 120fps

This is what’s important. It decodes videos up to 4K at 240fps or 8K at 60fps and encodes up to 4K at 120fps or 8K at 30fps. The MFC integrates power efficient AV1 decoder enabling longer playback time. Features HDR10+ and refresh rates of up to 144Hz.

The Exynos 2200’s image signal processor (ISP) architecture has been redesigned to support the latest image sensors for ultra-high resolution of up to 200 megapixel (MP). At 30 frames-per-second (fps), the ISP supports up to 108 MP in single camera mode, and 64+36 MP in dual camera mode. It can also connect up to seven individual image sensors and drive four concurrently for advanced multi-camera setups. For video recording, the ISP supports up to 4K HDR (or 8K) resolution. 

Ray Tracing

Samsung says with AMD RDNA 2 architecture as its backbone, the Xclipse brings advanced features such as hardware accelerated ray tracing (RT) and variable rate shading (VRS) that were previously only available on PCs, laptops and consoles.

Variable rate shading is a technique that optimises GPU workload by allowing developers to apply lower shading rate in areas where overall quality will not be affected. This gives GPU more room to work on areas that matter most to the gamers and improve frame-rate for smoother gameplay.

“AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture extends power-efficient, advanced graphics solutions to PCs, laptops, consoles, automobiles and now to mobile phones. Samsung’s Xclipse GPU is the first result of multiple planned generations of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos SoCs,” said David Wang, Senior Vice President of Radeon Technologies Group at AMD.

“We can’t wait for mobile phone customers to experience the great gaming experiences based on our technology collaboration.”

Telstra has started handing out 12,000 free mobile devices to struggling customers ahead of its 3G shutdown on 31 August, 2024. People in difficult financial situations, who live in rural and remote areas or the elderly, will be targeted in the handout.

“This initiative will benefit the most vulnerable members of our community,” said Major Brendan Nottle from The Salvation Army.

Telstra’s Consumer Segment Executive, Marty McGrath with Major Brendan Nottle from The Salvation Army.

“Ensuring that every Australian, from any background or level of income, can take part in our modern digital society is crucial. A phone can be a gateway to social inclusion, community connection and support, and with the upcoming closure of 3G networks in Australia it is important for us to reach out and ensure that this can continue for everyone.”

Although most Australians have moved on to 4G/5G devices, there are many people still using old handsets. Telstra says it will be communicating with eligible customers in the coming weeks to let them know a device is on its way. The devices will be

Along with a new device, customers will receive instructions showing them how to switch to their new phone on the 4G network. Around 156,000 customers from consumers to small business are using devices that are either 3G only, do not support Voice over 4G (VoLTE), have 4G coverage limitations, or are 4G enabled but hardwired to use 3G for Emergency calls. These users are currently receiving pre-recorded messages when making an outgoing call to alert them about the change.

If you’re unsure, SMS 3 to 3498 (3GXT) to check your phone or contact Telstra directly.

Exclusive Preview: Samsung Lights Up Vivid with AI Inspired Display

Published

on

Samsung is back at Vivid Sydney, Australia’s annual light show spectacular, with an AI inspired display that will give Instagrammers plenty of sweet content to share online. Image Matrix Tech had an exclusive preview tour last night and this is what you can expect.

Lots of Light Globes

Located in the prime position of First Fleet Park, The Rocks – the Samsung ‘Chorus of Light’ is made up of 20,000 RGB light globes hanging from 1,600 strings (cables). It’s open from 6pm tonight, every night until June 15, 2024.

AI Inspired

Chorus of Light’ is inspired by Galaxy AI. Samsung is using the event to promote to AI features introduced with the S24 range earlier this year. The display will use Galaxy AI to help with photography or as Samsung calls it, NIGHTOGRAPHY.

Interactive

As you walk among the hanging lights you’ll be directed to a couple of photo ‘platforms’ where a very polite guide will take a photo for you with an S24 Ultra. They can share it with you immediately using Quick Share. This works by generating a QR Code. It’s very fast and works with iPhone too. Given the team knows how the lighting works, it’s probably better they take the shot.

The other part of the interactive journey pays homage to Vivid Sydney 2024’s theme of ‘Humanity’. Visitors are asked to record a personal message of hope for the future in one of the 16 languages available with Galaxy AI. Each attendee’s message will then be live translated and expressed as a unique light display. The visuals are made possible by by renowned international media artist, Susan Kosti.

The recorded messages will later feature in an original track produced by multi-genre Australian musician and beat maker, Ta-ku. The track will be crafted entirely from vocal samples recorded within the Chorus of Light installation and launched on Samsung’s YouTube on 12 June for the world to hear.

Great View

The other section is a massive viewing platform that allows visitors to look down on the whole display. There are Galaxy phones and staff to help you capture the scene if you want the best result. They can fit about 60 people up there while the numbers going through the hanging lights is tightly controlled.

Wait – There’s More!

At the end of the tour, visitors can scan a QR code for a chance to win a travel prize. The prize pack includes a Galaxy S24 Ultra, Galaxy Buds2 Pro, Galaxy Watch6, and a $5K travel voucher.

Opening Times

The display is open to visitors from 6pm each night at First Fleet Park in The Rocks for the duration of Vivid Sydney. Vivid Sydney runs from Friday 24 May to Saturday 15 June 2024. Plan your Vivid Sydney trip at vividsydney.com.
