It seems that most high-end smartphones will finally adopt a new design with symmetrical edges on all sides, as iPhones or some Android devices already do.
In a series of tweets, leaker Ice Universe revealed what we can expect when it comes to high-end smartphones in 2023. Specifically, we now know that most devices will adopt the Galaxy S22’s design for the screen, which means all boundaries will be the same. Most current smartphones still use a thicker bottom edge, called the “chin”, which houses the connectors for the screen.
However, other devices such as the iPhone or Nothing Phone 1 use flexible screens that can fold at the bottom to pass the connectors through to the back. This trend is expected to spread in 2023, for example the long-awaited Xiaomi 13 which should finally adopt a design without edges. Other high-end devices such as the Oppo Find X6 Pro, OnePlus 11 Pro or Galaxy S23 Ultra are therefore expected to all adopt a similar front panel design.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 could correct all the defects of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
In other tweets, Ice Universe announced that in addition to a more modern design, most high-end smartphones of 2023 will benefit from the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 to be announced in November 2022. a simple new iteration of the current Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 manufactured by Samsung, the next Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 would be signed TSMC.
The new chip will therefore benefit from a more advanced burning process, of which the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 has recently exploited. The latter allows for a much more energy efficient chip, but above all less subject to overheating, the main fear of smartphones released earlier this year.
We also know that Qualcomm should focus on GPU performance, not forgetting to improve photo and CPU performance. Perhaps the best news comes from famed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who claims this Samsung is expected to equip all of its Galaxy S22s with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 next year. The Korean giant could not have made its Exynos 2300 a worthy competitor of the Qualcomm chip.
The Galaxy S22’s four equal-width bezels technology will be used extensively in flagship mobile phones from major brands in 2023, including the Xiaomi Mi 13.
