The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are still a few months away, but rumors are trickling a lot sooner than normal. Rumors have Samsung unveiling the Galaxy S9 duo sooner than normal. That may be the case as the Galaxy S9 (SM-960) has allegedly appeared on the popular benchmarking platform Geekbench.
Previous rumors that we reported had the Galaxy S9 coming with 6GB of RAM, but that’s not the case with this benchmark listing. According to Geekbench, the S9 will only feature 4GB of RAM. It could be possible that Samsung could even further differentiate the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ with different hardware along with size.
The device in this test is running the latest Exynos 9810 processor, which means it is the international model. The United States and China are expected to receive the Snapdragon variant running the 845 chipset. It is unknown if the Snapdragon variant would feature 6GB instead of 4GB of RAM, but it is possible. Android 8.0 Oreo is also on-board, which is expected.
The Galaxy S9 in this test fared quite well compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy S8. The S9 scored nearly 700 more points in the single-core test and just over a thousand more points in the multi-score test. Scoring 2680 in the single-core and 7787 in the multi-score is quite good. Last year’s S8 only scored 1986 and 6694 respectively.
