Samsung Galaxy Note 8 surfaces on Geekbench
by Alan Friedman / Aug 11, 2017, 12:16 PM
Today, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was discovered on Geekbench carrying the SM-N950F model number. The uniut used in the test is an international variant which means that the Exynos 8895 chipset was employed. In fact, during the testing the chipset's octo-core CPU ran at a clock speed of 1.69GHz. U.S. models will feature the Snapdragon 835 SoC under the hood. The Geekbench test also revealed that Samsung will place 6GB of RAM inside the device. Android 7.1.1 will be pre-installed
The Galaxy Note 8 scored 1984 in the Geekbench single-core test, while the multi-core test resulted in a tally of 6116. Both of those scores are short of the numbers put up by an Exynos 8895 powered Samsung Galaxy S8 back in May. The latter scored 2121 and 7101 in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.

Those exynos score numbers are from a bootloader unlocked S8 running a custom kernel and rom.

re: 27. Lumbergh (Posts: 318; Member since: 14 Feb 2016) S8+ > Note 8 Bigger battery Better performance Sleeker design Far Cheaper Note 8 will be great but S8+ will keep its title as Samsung's flagship. Most people couldn't care less about the S-Pen. ============================================= when u say "most people"...im sure you are talking about the people who dont need the s-pen...bcuz the people who buy the note series will use the s-pen, regardless if its just once, or twice, once in a while, now and then, or on a daily basis.

Note had its share of users not because of the pen but because it was a big screen device with big battery life. I believe more than 90% of its users couldn't care less if they have a pen or not, they just love the size of the screen.

But then, since 2013, there have been many big-sized phones with big battery life like the Note series, yet the Note series' userbase hasn't stopped from growing... Which debunks you claim that 90% of it's users do not care about it's stylus... Unless you have solid stats to back it up. How about the Note7 touted to be on track to outsell the S7 edge after a strong start in sales, before the battery fiasco spoiled it's fate? Isn't the S7 edge just as big in screen size and battery life? Then why do people who not care about the S-Pen not get the S7 edge instead, as since it was even cheaper when the Note7 launched? Your claim lacks substance, man.

Note was almost the only choice; sure, there were some Lenovos and Xiaomis, but they lack brand recognition. The best proof that Note users don't care about stylus is the fact that the soft of the Note - except some note taking dedicated apps and a few options - doesn't integrate it in every routine. Or does it? For instance, what could one be doing everyday with the stylus? Is there a text recognition tool in email/sms/im apps? Can it be used with the camera (dedicated uses)? How about the media and social apps (Facebook, Instagram etc)? If Note doesn’t have dedicated tools for those apps to take advantage of the stylus and those apps are the ones most used (hence my percentage), that means most of Note users don't care if their phone have a pen. People need simple things: this is the galaxy - a bit big, but normal sized phone, this is A - a middle class phone, this is Note - a big phone.

IPhone had its share of users not because it was a good phone, but because of the Apple logo. I believe 90% of its users couldn't care less of it works well or not, they just love the Apple logo. Is easy to post what one believes, even if there's no proof.

No one cares about most people. The people who care about the S-Pen buy this phone. Stop telling people what's best for their money. They aren't listening to you. There si more to the Note than the S-Pen. It is simply, Samsung marketed the device around the S-Pen and its features. If you'd actually owned a Note, you'd know this from usage. But instead you sound like a dumb as commercial with fluff and no facts. There si more to the Note then just the pen.
