A new day with new Galaxy S9 Plus leaks. Today, we are taking a look at some GeekBench scores that show what the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is capable of. Well, at least the Snapdragon variant. The Galaxy S9 Plus 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 Galaxy S9 model just as the Galaxy S8 Plus 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.
The Galaxy S9 Plus GeekBench result also shows 5GB of RAM on the S9 Plus. We’ve heard that the two new Galaxy models might have different amounts of RAM onboard, the smaller one 4GB while the larger one would have 6GB. It looks like that may be the case here. Keep in mind that benchmark apps oftentimes misinterpret specs, so we wouldn’t bet the S9 Plus will actually have 5GB of RAM.
