Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Spotted On Geekbench Equipped With a Snapdragon 835

As expectancy for Samsung’s next generation flagship is rapidly increasing, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Benchmark surfaced on Geekbench with the mighty Snapdragon 835 processor on board.

Samsung unveiled its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge at the Mobile World Congress in 2016, but this year it has decided to hold off for a while longer and announce the new Samsung Galaxy S8 line at a later date. Nevertheless, the company used the MWC 2017 event to drop a Galaxy S8 teaser video and confirm that it will officially unveil the new flagship on March 29.

Samsung is expected to introduce a Galaxy S8 and a Galaxy S8 Plus at its event later this month, and the latter has now popped up in a benchmark.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus On Geekbench

A device with model number SM-G955U, believed to be the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, bench-marked by Geekbench and revealing some of its specifications and performance in the process.

This particular benchmark shows the Snapdragon-powered version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, but keep in mind that the flagship will also come with the Exynos-powered version (depending on the market).

That said, the Galaxy S8 Plus spotted on Geekbench packs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor under the hood and scored 1,929 points in the single-core test and 6,084 points in the multi-core one.

The benchmark site records the Snapdragon 835 processor powering this particular Galaxy S8 Plus variant, clocking 1.9 GHz and coming with 4 GB of RAM. This seems to contradict earlier rumors of a Galaxy S8 series with 6 GB of RAM. However, the potential existence of a 4 GB version doesn’t necessarily rule out a 6 GB variant – Samsung could be planning multiple configurations to suit different needs and budgets. It has been rumored that the Chinese version of the Galaxy S8 Plus would come equipped with 6GB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Release And Expectations

Samsung’s big event is set for March 29th and its likely the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will go on sale sometime in April. One flagship variant will pack the Snapdragon 835 processor, while the other will come with Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 SoC. In regards to the software of the device, we can expect the Galaxy S8 series to come with Android 7.0 Nougat installed out of the box.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus are expected to come with a host of powerful specifications and features all around. Many leaked photos show a sleek design with slim bezels, a curved display is present on both S8 and S8+ while no physical home button can be seen. Both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are expected to feature the same design in two different sizes (5.8 inch | 6.2 inch respectively).

In addition to the high-end specification and stunning design, the Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus are expected to stand out from the rest, thanks to a Samsung designed AI assistant code name Bixby.
