The first Galaxy S10 Exynos 9820 benchmark appeared online today. The SM-G975F model of Samsung's upcoming flagship has surfaced on AnTuTu. It's internally referred to as “beyond2” and may be branded as the Galaxy S10+ when it's released.
Samsung's Exynos 9820 processor will power the Galaxy S10. Samsung officially announced it two weeks ago. It features a fourth-generation custom processor, an LTE Advanced Pro modem and a separate neural processing unit for artificial intelligence tasks.

The specs of the device used to run this benchmark include a 6.4-inch 2280×1080 pixel resolution display. The display resolution shouldn't alarm you. The test units used to run benchmarks often don't give the full picture about the rest of the specs.
The Exynos 9820 processor is coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. That's within expectations. There's also the Mali-G76 MP12 graphics processor which promises a 40 percent improvement in performance compared to the Galaxy S9's Exynos 9810. Samsung did not reveal the processor frequency of the Exynos 9820 when it unveiled the chip. The highest frequency clocked in this benchmark was 2.7GHz. Whether or not this will be the final frequency remains to be seen.
This Galaxy S10 Exynos 9820 benchmark scored 325,076 points on AnTuTu. It's slightly higher than Huawei's Kirin 980 chip which scored 309,628 on the Mate 20 Pro. Exynos 9820 is based on Samsung's 8nm LPP FinFET processor with two custom CPU cores. Therefore, Samsung has said that it delivers 20 percent single-core and 15 percent multi-core performance gain.
Furthermore, there will likely be some difference in the figures between the Exynos and Snapdragon variants of the Galaxy S10. Samsung will ship the device in select markets like China and the United States with the Snapdragon 8150 processor instead.
The first Galaxy S10 Exynos 9820 benchmark shows that it will deliver the performance gains that are expected of it. We'll be seeing more of these benchmarks in the days to come as Samsung ramps up testing for its next flagship smartphone.
