Samsung Galaxy S8 pops up on Geekbench with Snapdragon 835 SoC and 4 GB RAM
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to be unveiled on March 29. Alongside, Samsung is also expected to unveil a larger variant of the Galaxy S8, called the Galaxy S8+. While the Galaxy S8+ has already made an appearance on Geekbench revealing some of its specifications, the Galaxy S8 too has popped up on this benchmarking website now.
While the Galaxy S8+, which had appeared on Geekbench, carried model number SM-G955U, the Galaxy S8 that has surfaced on Geekbench carries model number SM-G950U. It has been listed on Geekbench with Snapdragon 835 SoC and is paired with 4 GB RAM. For graphically intensive tasks, it has Adreno 540 GPU in tow. The unit of the Galaxy S8 that was put through the bencmarking test runs Android 7.0 Nougat, but, we hope that it will be running Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.
While the Galaxy S8+ made a score of 1929 and 6084 points in single and multi-core tests of Geekbench respectively, the smaller Galaxy S8 isn’t far behind with a score of 1916 single-core and 6011 multi-core points. Until now, we have only seen the Galaxy S8 and S8+ appearing on Geekbench with Snapdragon 835 SoC, but, we are also expecting Exynos powered variants to pop-up soon. The Snapdragon 835 variants will most likely be restricted to the US market, whereas, other markets will be supplied with Samsung’s Exynos chipset under the hood.
