A couple of days back, we shared with you what appeared to the first benchmark posting of the Samsung Galaxy S8+. The scores painted a mixed picture for the device. In single core scores, Galaxy S7 Plus managed to beat its successors. In multi core scores, the former came on top, which is no surprise. Today, more scores have surfaced, this time for the Samsung Galaxy S8. Take a look below for more details.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Surfaces On GeekBench and Comfortably Beats Its Predecessor
The Samsung Galaxy S8 will be a performance powerhouse. The device will feature 10nm processors and is rumored to also come with 6GB of RAM. If the latter bears fruit, then we’re looking at a very powerful device indeed. However, as mentioned above, alleged benchmark scores for the Galaxy S8’s larger variant, the Galaxy S8+ paint a mixed picture. Thankfully, today’s leak for the Galaxy S8 isn’t as confusing.
Just like the S8+, the S8 has also surfaced on GeekBench, with the Snapdragon 835 and 4GB of RAM. It also comfortably breezes past its successor, the Galaxy S7 in both single and multi core results. The Samsung Galaxy S7 scores an aggregate of 1800 in single and 5,200 points in multi core results. The Galaxy S8’s results of 1916 and 6011 points for single and multi core results respectively comfortably cross this barrier.
The Snapdragon 835, just as in the earlier leak, is clocked in at 1.9GHz. Qualcomm’s processor for 2017 can reach frequencies up to 3.0GHz, so we’re curious for the reason why these leaks show an under-clocked processor. Samsung’s most likely testing the Snapdragon 835 and the Galaxy S8 for any last minute problems and not trying to assess the pair’s top operating performance. Other features for the device include massive screen area, no buttons at the front, a rear fingerprint sensor and design upgrades.
As we head into the launch of the Galaxy S8, set for March, Samsung will have a lot of troubles on its plate. Not only will the company try to make up for the Galaxy Note 7 disaster, but it’s top management will be in the middle of court proceeding. Samsung’s acting head and heir apparent, Jay Lee is set to appear before a South Korean court this Thursday in relation to bribery charges. Times aren’t going well for Samsung at all. Thoughts?
