Alleged Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Spied In Geekbench Listing Boasting Exynos 9810 Chipset
The rumors have started in earnest about the next flagship smartphone from Samsung, which is expected to be called the Galaxy S9. Like Galaxy devices that came before it, the S9 is expected to come in a standard and plus sizes. A results page from Geekbench has surfaced that claims to show the results for the Galaxy S9 Plus version of the smartphone.
The results page (seen below) calls out a score of 1191 for single-core and 3835 for multi-core. The model number is Samsung SM-G965F and the listing calls out a motherboard dubbed universal9810. That is presumed to be the new Exynos 9810 SoC that Samsung launched about a week ago.
A previous leaked suggested that the U.S. and Chinese version of the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus would use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, while other versions would use Samsung's own Exynos 9 Octa-core SoC.
The Geekbench results list 3686 MB of RAM, which will make many pause. 6GB of RAM becoming more common in high-end devices the expectation was for more RAM inside. You might have noticed that the scores for both single core and multicore performance in this listing are also quite low -- the Galaxy S8 scored higher than that in other tests. However, we have to remember that these are early figures and there is still time for platform optimizations.
There has been other rumors floating around about the Galaxy S9 line and the one rumor that audio fans will appreciate is that the devices are tipped to keep the headphone port. A leak from this week had CAD drawings with it and shows a device that looks a lot like the existing Galaxy S8 and S8 plus smartphones apart from stacked dual rear cameras. The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are expected to get official during Mobile World Congress in 2018.
