Samsung Galaxy S9+ (with Snapdragon 845) gets benchmarked, impressive scores ensue


We're at least a couple of months away from the day when Samsung announces its Galaxy S9 and S9+ flagship smartphones, but we already know a lot about the two devices. For example, we know that both should be powered by Qualcomm's brand new Snapdragon 845 processor (at least in the US).

 

Since the Snapdragon 845 is Qualcomm's most advanced chipset to date, the performance of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ should be top-notch, superior to any previous Samsung phone, and perhaps any previous Android phone, regardless of its maker. Benchmark website Geekbench appears to support this idea, as someone seems to have benchmarked a real Samsung Galaxy S9+ and its Snapdragon 845 processor, putting the results out in the open.

As you can see in the screenshot on the right, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ (model number SM-G965) got a single-core benchmark score of 2422, and a multi-core score of 8351. Until now, from what the data available at Geekbench can tell us, no other Samsung smartphone scored higher than 2000 on single-core performance, while the best multi-core scores hover around the 6500 mark.

 

This new GeekBench test also shows that the Samsung Galaxy S9+ runs Android 8 Oreo, and features 6 GB of RAM - no surprises here. Both the Galaxy S9+ and Galaxy S9 should be officially announced in February (likely at MWC 2018), and released around the world some weeks later, in March. The two smartphones seem to be incremental upgrades over the S8 and S8+, but people are probably still excited about them. Are you?
