Today, we are taking a look at some GeekBench scores that show what the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is capable of. Well, at least the Snapdragon variant. The S9+ is expected to ship with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. The model number in the Benchmark results is SM-G965U1, which corresponds to the larger S9 model just as the Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy S7 edge both had model numbers that ended in “5”. The “U” signifies an unlocked model, in this case for the US.
The single-core score gets a noticeable bump over the Snapdragon 835’s of about 27% while the multicore score gets a 31% bump in scores over the 835. These numbers are quite high, but they still don’t beat the iPhone X’s A11 Bionic chip. Still, at the end of the day scores are just numbers and what matters more is real-life performance.
