Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with Snapdragon 835 SoC gets benchmarked

The first benchmark that shows the performance results of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 appeared yesterday. Samsung SM-950F is the Exynos-based version of Galaxy Note 8, one that will be sold as the international model.

However, customers in the United States will get a slightly different Galaxy Note 8 model, which will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor instead of the Exynos 8895 that was benchmarked recently.

If you've seen the benchmark scores for the Exynos-based Galaxy Note 8, then it's time to compare them to those of the Qualcomm-powered model, which has just been spotted at Geekbench.

Apparently, the Snapdragon 835 processor scored slightly less than the Exynos-enabled Galaxy Note 8. Still, the differences are minor, so this will likely to be a non-issue for those looking to buy one or the other version of Samsung's flagship.

The Samsung SM-N950F that comes with Exynos 8895 inside scored 1984 (single-core) and 6116 (multi-core), while the Samsung SM-950U with Snapdragon 835 scores 1815 (single-core) and 6066 (multi-core), respectively.

To remind you, Samsung has already confirmed its next Unpacked event is scheduled for August 23, so that's when we're expecting the Galaxy Note 8 to be made official.
