The first Snapdragon 845 benchmarks were posted online earlier this week, giving us a glimpse of the performance gain we can expect from the new chip. With reports suggesting that Samsung’s Exynos 9810 will smoke its competitor from Qualcomm many were excited to see the first (unofficial) Galaxy S9 Exynos 9810 benchmark that surfaced online yesterday.
The benchmark results will continue to roll in now that the official launch of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ is just around the corner. Today, a Snapdragon 845-powered Galaxy S9+ with 6GB RAM has surfaced on AnTuTu. The Galaxy S9+ is the only model that’s expected to feature 6GB RAM, the Galaxy S9 will only get 4GB.
Galaxy S9+ Snapdragon 845 benchmark
It goes without saying that the benchmark result can’t be independently verified right now because the Galaxy S9+ isn’t out. It’s not too difficult to fabricate benchmark results and it has happened in the past. Just bear that in mind even if the Galaxy S9+ Snapdragon 845 benchmark result seems accurate.
The AnTuTu listing is for the Galaxy S9+ model number SM-G9650, this particular variant will be headed to Hong Kong.The AnTuTu benchmark awarded it a score of 265267 points. Since the Exynos 9810 hasn’t surfaced on AnTuTu as yet the two can’t be compared on this benchmark. For the sake of comparison, the Snapdragon 835-powered Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM received a total score of 170641 points on AnTuTu.
Don’t be put off by the 1080×2020 pixel resolution in the benchmark result because the test is run in Full HD+ on AnTuTu. The Galaxy S9+ will have a 1440×2960 pixel resolution display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio as expected.
It’s likely that we’ll see the Exynos 9810-powered variants of the upcoming flagship smartphone surface on AnTuTu as well in the near future. Samsung is due to unveil the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ on February 25 in Barcelona, Spain.
