The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are just around the corner, and just as one could expect, almost everything regarding these anticipated devices is known at this point. Come to think of, only camera samples remain to be released to the world, but we probably wouldn’t have to wait for those for too long – after all, the Galaxies go official in less than two weeks and we will be at

Now, a new benchmark entry on Geekbench seems to be giving us a sneak peek at the performance of the Exynos 9810-powered version of the Galaxy S9/S9+. Surprise, surprise, with a single-core score of 3648 points and multi-core one of 8894 points, it ekes past the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which will power the US version of the flagships. According to a previously unearthed benchmark, the Snapdragon version scored 2378 points on the single-core test and 8132 points on the multi-core one. A rather big difference and a clear win for the Exynos chipset, if true of course.
As a reminder, Samsung usually puts its own Exynos chipset in the international version of its flagship, while the US variants are traditionally flaunting Qualcomm’s top chipset. As a rule of thumb, Exynos-powered Galaxies normally perform better and have superior battery life than their Snapdragon counterparts, and if this recent benchmark leak reaffirms at least one of these expectations that we also hold high for the Galaxy S9 and S9+.
Naturally, it should be noted right here and right now that Geekbench results could be easily faked, but we have a hunch that the Exynos 9810 performance shown in this latest leak could be real.
