The Exynos-powered Galaxy S10+
produced some pretty lackluster scores
earlier today that likely weren’t representative of its full potential. And to back this theory up, the regular Galaxy S10
powered by the same chip has just been spotted
some significantly better numbers.
Powerful, just not the most powerful
Produced by the same Exynos 9820 and 6GB of RAM combination found in the larger model, the regular version of Samsung’s upcoming flagship reached a total of 9570 points on the multi-core test and a very respectable 4382 points on the single-core alternative.
These numbers are 1571 and 1134 points ahead of the Galaxy S10+ that was spotted earlier and are more or less on par with the expectations for the chipset at this stage. Once the chip is tested in combination with the final software, though, the multi-core result will probably be closer to the 10,000 mark putting it on par with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro
's Kirin 980 and slightly behind Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855
Much like last year’s Exynos 9810 and A11 Bionic, it’s also worth noting that this year’s Exynos 9820, which is manufactured using the 8-nanometer process, isn’t expected to best Apple’s 7-nanometer A12 Bionic.
One month until the Galaxy S10's unveiling
Following in the footsteps of the larger Galaxy S10+
, the regular Galaxy S10 will arrive complete with the same triple-camera setup on the rear. This means consumers can expect to see a 12-megapixel variable aperture camera, a telephoto alternative, and a third sensor complete with a wide-angle lens. Up front, an improved selfie camera is to be expected too.
Speaking of the front, the Galaxy S10
is set to include a 6.1-inch Infinity-O display which features a small display hole in the corner. This will be paired with minimal bezels around it. Also set to be part of the package is a dedicated Bixby button, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a bottom-firing speaker.
As Samsung has already confirmed, the Galaxy S10 will be announced in both London and San Francisco simultaneously at a February 20 event
. The flagship is set to be joined by the Galaxy S10E
and Galaxy S10+, as well as the foldable Galaxy Fold
if the company’s teasers are anything to go by.
