Galaxy S23 Ultra for the USA market smashes through online benchmark


Last updated: October 21st, 2022 at 19:29 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy S23 popped up in an online benchmark earlier this week, and now it’s time for its bigger sibling, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, to do the same. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S23 Ultra appears to be powered by the same chipset, and benchmark performance is on par with what was discovered a few days ago.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra for the USA (SM-S918U) in the recent benchmark has the same characteristics as the SM-S911U variant, including 8GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset featuring a high-performance CPU core clocked at 3.36GHz, three CPU cores operating at 2.02GHz, and four 2.8GHz cores for a total of eight CPU cores.

Running Android 13 and smashing benchmarks

Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S23 Ultra runs Android 13. There’s no information on the version of One UI, but presumably, the Galaxy S23 series will ship with One UI 5.1. Samsung mentioned the latter version in one of its recent blog posts, hinting that it is already in development.

As far as performance goes in these synthetic benchmarks, the Galaxy S23 Ultra featuring the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC posts very positive results. But as always, these results are subject to change and don’t necessarily reflect real-world performance levels.

Either way, the Galaxy S23 Ultra in Geekbench 5.4.4 topped 1,521 points in the single-core tests and 4,689 points in multi-core tests. For reference, the Galaxy S22 Ultra powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset scores roughly 1,100-1,200 points in single-core tests and around 3,000 points in multi-core.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra is shaping up to be a beast of a phone. But as usual, keep in mind where this new information comes from. Online benchmarks are not infallible, and their results can vary, especially for unreleased devices. Regardless of what the S23 Ultra will be capable of, Samsung is expected to announce it next year in Q1. You can be sure that we’ll perform our own tests once we get our hands on the upcoming flagship trio, so you might want to stick around and keep an eye on our YouTube channel.
