How Galaxy has become the definitive smartphone for gamers – Samsung Newsroom Spain
As the world of gaming comes together at the Game Developers Conference to celebrate and discuss the latest and greatest innovations, take a look at Samsung Galaxy’s vision for creating the best mobile gaming smartphone on the market.
Since the days of the first Galaxy S, mobile games have completely evolved. The most popular games used to be basic tap and swipe games, but now mobile games offer so much more. Like the mobile game market grows at a rate of 1.7 times that of the rest of the gaming world, innovation is in high demand.
The line between mobile gaming and PC or console gaming is blurring, and Samsung engineers have been working to blur it entirely. With the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung aimed to set a new standard for what a high-end mobile device can do.
With improvements to hardware, software, processing and much more, the latest Galaxy smartphone dramatically improves every aspect of the device. The Galaxy S23 series has even optimized the games themselves through open collaboration with developers. The result: a first-class gaming experience with high performance in all areas.
We created the ultimate smartphone for gamers
At the heart of the Galaxy S23 series is the Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy Mobile Platform. It’s the most powerful chip ever built into a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, and it gives gamers an advantage they won’t find in other smartphones. It makes graphics smoother, with more stable frame rates. In addition, it consumes less energy than previous models.
That’s increasingly important as mobile gaming becomes more demanding. The graphics of mobile games are getting closer and closer to what can be done from the PC or console. Renderers face more 3D rendering challenges. More textures and objects in a scene, plus higher frame rates and ever-increasing resolutions.
The Galaxy S23 handles all of this with ease. Samsung has worked closely with Qualcomm to optimize the chip for the Galaxy. When development began, the priority was ensuring GPU compatibility, reliability, and optimized performance.
The result is a 41% faster GPU designed to meet the demands of the most demanding users. The new CPU structure also increases the processing power of the Galaxy S23 series by around 30% compared to the Galaxy S22 series.
Supporting all of this is a key innovation that helps us achieve our goal: the Galaxy Vapor Cooler. An overheated chip can limit resources to protect both the user and the device. This causes reductions in gaming performance such as frame rate drops. Larger in the Galaxy S23 Ultra and incorporated into the S23+ and S23 models, the vapor cooling chamber boosts gaming performance by dissipating heat.
All of these advances help address one of gaming’s latest challenges: cross-platform play. That is, when the mobile, console, and desktop versions of a game have to share data between devices. This translates to higher CPU and GPU loads than conventional games, which is a lot of work. Good resource management is essential, as is intelligence to balance performance and power.
The future of gaming, more mobile
To excel at handling increasingly demanding tasks, a smartphone needs excellent hardware and software, as well as precise optimization to get the most out of both.
The Galaxy S23 offers the fastest mobile graphics of any Galaxy device. But most importantly, you can now sustain intense gaming performance for longer periods of time than the previous S series. This was one of the biggest differences between mobile and stationary gaming sessions, and Galaxy is reducing it.
The Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy Mobile Platform is also designed to support new technologies such as ray tracing (ray tracing). Capable of handling the effects of various light sources such as shadows and reflections, the Galaxy S23 series could be the first platform where game developers apply ray tracing effects to popular mobile games. But Samsung isn’t just ahead of the industry now. Engineers are already working on further developments for the future so that Galaxy smartphones can support even more complex visual effects.
While there are plenty of smartphones that play games on the go just fine, the Galaxy aspires to something extraordinary. Something like the Galaxy S23 series. Or, as we like to think, the ultimate smartphone for gamers, which will only get better.
