Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite benchmark hints at state-of-the-art processor
This isn’t going to be a mid-range device, though, as suggested by multiple insiders and corroborated by a freshly uploaded Geekbench Browser result. The popular benchmarking database lists the Samsung SM-G970U handset as packing a generous 6GB RAM and a Qualcomm-made processor with a motherboard codenamed “msmnile.”
Multiple benchmarks of unspecified prototypes featuring the same motherboard have been associated with Snapdragon 855 reference devices over the past couple of months, so it’s pretty much etched in stone now that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite will come equipped with Qualcomm’s powerful new SoC.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the aforementioned SM-G970U model number is clearly related to the SM-G960U label attached to the Galaxy S9. The “regular” Galaxy S10 is rumored to carry an SM-G973 model number, with the S10+ also known as SM-G975 on the inside. The letter U at the end of the phone’s designation, by the way, strongly suggests this will be sold unlocked in the US.
As for the actual benchmark scores of the Galaxy S10 Lite, they’re certainly not impressive, especially if you compare them to the alleged recent results of the Sony Xperia XZ4. That can be partly explained by a difference of 2 gigs of memory between the two devices, as well as a likely gap in the pre-production process.
We’re guessing the SM-G970U prototype tested earlier today is far from finished, running unpolished (Android 9) software. After all, even the Galaxy S9 is capable of posting higher single and multi-core scores than 1986 and 6266 with a Snapdragon 845 processor.
