In this article, I’m going to show you an easy way how to check if your Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+, S22 Ultra comes with Exynos or Snapdragon processor.
So, I got my Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra a few weeks ago, and I’ve been enjoying it so since then. No regrets.
However, something happened when I got My Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. One day, I was in my car, being an automobile, I wanted to pick up my friend from school.
So, when my friend got to my car, knowing fully well that my S22 Ultra has just been delivered, asked whether mine is Exynos or Snapdragon.
I couldn’t answer the question because I didn’t care which processor the phone has. I’m more of the design than the processor, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to get the best processor.
And from what I heard, the Snapdragon variant of the S22 Ultra is much better than the Exynos, then I and my friend wished I got the snapdragon model.
To check the processor, I immediately went to the “about phone” and discovered that the information is not there. Samsung has indeed hidden the information for reasons best known to them.
Since they said that Google is your friend, I, therefore, went online to get information on how to see the processor; I couldn’t find it.
So, if you are like me and want to be sure if the processor of your Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+ & S22 Ultra is Exynos or Snapdragon, you are in the right, I will show you how I get to see mine.
