Galaxy Z Flip appears on Geekbench with Snapdragon 855, 8GB RAM

The Galaxy Z Flip has finally made its debut on the Geekbench benchmark database, following its appearance in a leaked video over the weekend. As expected, the Galaxy Z Flip is powered by the Snapdragon 855 processor – some rumors have said it will feature the Snapdragon 855+, but there’s no way to tell whether the device has the 855 or 855+ under the hood from the benchmark, as Geekbench uses the same codename and architecture name for both chips.

That’s because the Snapdragon 855+ is simply a higher clocked version of the 855, with theoretical gains of up to 15% in GPU performance. Samsung has only used the Snapdragon 855+ in one device till date – the W20, which is a rebranded Galaxy Fold for one of China’s big carriers. It remains to be seen if the Galaxy Z Flip will use the 855 or 855+, though it won’t be long before we find out. Samsung is set to unveil its new foldable phone at its Unpacked event in San Francisco in less than two weeks.

The Galaxy Z Flip has 8GB of RAM, according to the Geekbench listing, and it runs Android 10. There probably isn’t any variant of the phone with 12GB of RAM, and we likely won’t see one with 6GB of RAM, either. The Galaxy Z Flip is expected to cost around 1500 euros, and while much of the high price is no doubt a result of the foldable design, Samsung would be foolish to sell any phone with a 1000 euro+ price tag with less than 8GB of RAM as standard.
