Galaxy S9+ benchmark shows impressive performance

Samsung is expected to unveil its new flagship smartphones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona come February 2018. This means that we’ll be seeing a lot of reports and rumors about the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in the weeks leading up to the launch.

A benchmark listing for what appears to be the Galaxy S9+ has been spotted today and if the scores are accurate, the Galaxy S9+ is going to be impressive in the performance department, just as expected from a new flagship.

Galaxy S9+ benchmark shows promise

The Geekbench listing for the Galaxy S9+ (SM-G965) shows a single-core benchmark score of 2422. The multi-core score came in at 8351. This particular device was powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Snapdragon-powered models are released in select markets like the United States. Other markets get the Exynos-powered models.

Data available on Geekbench shows that no other Samsung smartphone has a single-core score of more than 2000 (other than a few instances where the score can be seeing going a few digits over 2000) and a multi-core score of 6500. If the numbers for the Galaxy S9+ are accurate, it may offer significantly better performance than any high-end Samsung device available today.

That’s to be expected from a new flagship smartphone with the latest silicon and 6GB RAM. The Geekbench listing also mentions that the device was running Android 8.0 Oreo which will surely be on-board when the handset is eventually released.

We will surely see additional benchmark results of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in the coming weeks. They will help us form a better idea of the sort of performance figures we can expect to see. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will likely be unveiled at MWC 2018 in February and will be released by mid-March.
