Samsung has been pretty consistent with the distribution of the two chipset versions of its flagships, but this year rumors emerged that potential Exynos production issues might shake things up. The company finally announced the Exynos 2200 on Tuesday and now a leakster claims to have the list of markets that will get it.
Traditionally Europe is getting Exynos-powered Galaxy S flagships, while North America and east Asia are going with the Snapdragon version.
Interestingly, some regions like Africa, Middle East Asia and West Asia will get both options, depending on the country.

Perhaps the initial rumors about Samsung’s Exynos 2200 production maintaining lower yields might be true and thus the company was forced to move more units to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
