Samsung Galaxy S8 shows up on Geekbench running Android 8.0

It has been close to a month since Google released the final version of Android 8.0, and we had reported earlier this month that Samsung has started the development of Android 8.0 for its flagship smartphones: Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Now, the Galaxy S8 has been spotted on Geekbench running Android 8.0.

As spotted by GalaxyClub, you can see the Galaxy S8 running Android 8.0 in the image below. Samsung will surely release the Oreo update for its high-end smartphones, including the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy Note 8, and the Galaxy S7 duo in the coming months.

  • Just to compare - on a snapdragon 835 version nougat it is 1,845 (single-core) and 6,333 (multi-core)

    • Galaxy S7 Exynos, I get 1940 +/- 10 and 6000 +/-50 (stock, not rooted or modified in any way)

      There wasn't much speed improvement from 2016 to 2017, while the unnamed largest competitor with their custom chip significantly increased performance.

      • Samsung mostly invested in efficiency improvements of the CPU and a GPU improvement of at least 60%. Yes, CPU speed remained similar.
        The unnamed competitor seems to have increased CPU speed significantly but with marginal efficiency improvements instead and just 30% GPU speed improvements.

        Clearly different priorities. If you watch filmed battery comparisons between an S8/S8 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus when doing daily work tasks (rather than some unique and more arbitrary tests), the former 2 demolish the iPhone in endurance by a large margin. Based on specs for the new models, that hasn't changed much. So Samsung clearly was on to something with their focus on efficiency.

  • Mine is the 8895. the result is 2024 single core and 6707 multi core running the lastest firmware
