The Samsung Galaxy S23 could have the best chipset of any 2023 Android phone

We’ve been hearing for a while that Samsung will reportedly use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset globally in the Galaxy S23 line, which was already good news for reasons we’ll get into below. But now it looks like the company might go one better, and equip these phones with an exclusive, even more powerful variant of the chipset.

That’s according to @UniverseIce – a leaker with a solid track record – who’s done some digging and found various pieces of evidence to support this claim.

First, they posted a screenshot from a benchmark for the Samsung Galaxy S23, showing a clock speed of up to 3.36GHz – which is higher than the 3.2GHz speeds the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 typically offers. Next, they claimed that multiple different model numbers exist for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

Finally they claimed to have “confirmed” that the Samsung Galaxy S23 will use a high-frequency version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that’s exclusive to Samsung.

Interestingly, they say this chip will be used in the European version of the Samsung Galaxy S23 line, so it’s not clear whether the same supercharged chipset will be used in the rest of the world or not.

But in Europe at least, the Galaxy S23 and its siblings could be the most powerful Android phones on the planet – though as ever we’d take this claim with a pinch of salt for now.

Analysis: making the best chipset better

If the Samsung Galaxy S23 line really does have exclusive access to a better version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, then it’s unlikely that any other 2023 Android phone will be able to match these handsets. Typically the top Snapdragon chipset of a given year is the best chipset available to Android phones, and there’s no sign that 2023 will be any different.

That’s why it’s good news that Samsung will reportedly be offering Snapdragon chipsets globally, rather than shipping the phones with its own Exynos chipsets in some regions as it's done in the past – and if it’s using an even better version of that chipset, then that’s even better news.

Hopefully, that better version will be offered globally, but if it is limited to Europe then that would perhaps be fitting, as historically Europe has been among the regions that were lumbered with inferior Exynos chipsets.

Of course, this will all be bad news for the other manufactures launching new phones in 2023, as Samsung already outsells other Android handset makers, and its devices are permanent fixtures in our best phones rankings – and having a superior chipset could just extend the company’s lead.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
