Exynos 2500 specifications are now online

The Exynos 2400 processor in the Galaxy S24+ surprised everyone by outperforming its main competitor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. This success has given some hope that the next generation Exynos 2500, which powers the Galaxy S25 series, will be a real game changer.

However, a recent leak from X/Twitter insider OreXDA paints a different picture. While the main Exynos 2500 core may be slightly faster than the 2400, other performance cores seem to be taking a step back. This suggests that Samsung may be focusing on efficiency and battery life rather than power output for the S25.

In particular, the top-of-the-line Cortex-X5 Exynos 2500 core is expected to operate at 3.2 GHz to 3.3 GHz. In addition, the three Cortex-A730 cores are likely to operate at 2.5 GHz to 2.3 GHz. These speeds are noticeably lower than the Cortex-A720 cores used in the Exynos 2400.

Previous leaks suggested that the SoC (system on a chip) would have a unique 1+3+2+4 processor configuration. This means that the two remaining Cortex-A730 cores will have even lower speeds than the first three. The performance of the four Cortex-A530 cores remains a mystery at the moment.

This move may seem strange, but it could be strategic. The Exynos 2500 is built on Samsung’s new 3GAP process, which is expected to be more efficient than the 3nm FinFET technology from competitors. This could give the S25 longer battery life and cooler performance, even if it doesn’t dominate benchmarks.

Of course, these are still just leaks, and the final specs could change. But if true, it suggests that Samsung is prioritizing user experience over chasing the highest numbers on paper. This could be a fresh approach that focuses on what really matters to smartphone users.
