Exynos 8895 powered Samsung Galaxy S8+ appears on Geekbench with 4 GB RAM
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to be unveiled on March 29 along with the Galaxy S8+. While we have been hearing a lot about the Galaxy S8 every other day, there’s not much that we across about the Galaxy S8+. However, both the devices are essentially same with the difference in screen size and battery capacity. Both of them are expected to be powered by Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895. While the Snapdragon variant of the Galaxy S8+ has already appeared on Geekbench, the Exynos variant too has made an appearance now on this benchmarking website.
The Exynos 8895 powered variant of the Samsung Galaxy S8+ has appeared on Geekbench with 4 GB RAM and Android 7.0 Nougat. It’s listed as SM-G955F which confirms that it indeed is the Galaxy S8+ and not the Galaxy S8 which carries model number SM-G950x.
The Galaxy S8+ scored 1978 and 6375 points in Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests respectively. Well, that’s a bit higher than its Snapdragon 835 counterpart that had a score of 1929 and 6084 points in single-core and multi-core tests respectively. Also, as always, Samsung is very likely to sell the Snapdragon variant in the US market with units in the other markets being shipped with Exynos SoC under the hood. This not just applies for the Galaxy S8+, but the smaller Galaxy S8 as well.
