Samsung Galaxy S9+ appears in benchmark with (only) 4GB RAM, but it doesn't seem real

Update: Since Geekbench results can be easily fooled, it's hard to say whether or not this benchmark is real. Moreover, as some of our readers pointed out, these results are lower than those obtained by the Galaxy S8+, so it looks like the screenshot might be fake.

Samsung is rumored to launch its new flagship duo – the Galaxy S9 and S9+, earlier than usual. Since the South Korean company unveils new Galaxy S series flagships in late February or early March, if the rumors are true, Samsung might introduce them as early as January.

New information about Samsung's upcoming top-of-the-line smartphones has just emerged online, which suggests the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are already being tested before prime time.

As some of you may already know, the two devices have been given new model numbers: SM-G960 and SM-G965. The latter was recently spotted at Geekbench, along with some of its specs.

It's pretty clear that the next chipset to power Samsung's new flagships is the Exynos 9810, a processor that's been officially introduced not long ago. Well, the listing at Geekbench confirms the Galaxy S9+ packs the Exynos 8910 processor, coupled with only 4GB RAM. Yes, it looks like the previous reports suggesting the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be stuck on 4GB RAM were accurate.

We don't have any reason to believe the regular Galaxy S9 model will feature a different technical specifications configuration except for the display. One other thing that the listing confirms is the fact that both smartphones will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo on board, which isn't surprising at all.
