Ahead of its big announcement, the Galaxy S9+ has been spotted on GeekBench. We already know how the Galaxy S9/S9+ would look like and now we are getting some concrete details of its hardware specs.
Based on this recent listing on Geekbench, a Galaxy S9+ (SM-G965) was spotted with a Snapdragon 845 processor that’s mated to 6GB of RAM. It scored over 2,400 on Geekbench’s single-core test and 8,351 for its multi-core test. As a comparison, the Galaxy Note8 scored 1,960 for single-core and 6,475 for multi-core.
The scores are quite high for an Android but it’s still not as high as Apple’s A11 Bionic chip on the iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone X. That scored over 4200 for Single Core and over 10,000 for Multi-score tests on GeekBench 4.
Since it’s still early, the benchmark scores might be higher on final production units. For us in Malaysia, Samsung traditionally does not offer the Snapdragon variants for our market as we will be getting their in-house developed Exynos chipset instead.
