Acquiring benchmark scores of smartphones prior to their launch is a good way to get an idea about their performance potential while it also acts as a pretty solid marketing exercise.
The top of the line Galaxy devices from Samsung are some of the best performers in the high-end smartphone segment and they deliver some of the best user experiences around. The latest development from the South Korean firm is that their next-in-line Galaxy Note 9 has been benchmarked on Geekbench.
The phone was benchmarked earlier as well and that time it was running the Snapdragon 845 chipset. This time though, it’s running Samsung’s in-house Exynos 9810 processor and it has seemingly outperformed its Snapdragon counterpart.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9, running the Exynos 9810 chipset, has scored 2737 points and 9064 points in the Single-core and Multi-core sections respectively. Compared to this, its single-core and multi-score scores with the Snapdragon 845 were 2190 points and 8806 points respectively. This is a visible difference even though not much.
This has been a pattern with Samsung that their high-end phones running its Exynos chipset usually outperform their Snapdragon counterparts. Also, one common thing between both the Note 9 variants here is the 6 GB RAM.
Lastly, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to sport a slightly larger 6.4-inch display (compared to 6.3-inch display of Note 8). It is likely to come with Bixby 2.0 and there is a chance that the fingerprint sensor could be moved to a more ergonomic-friendly position. The design language will supposedly remain unchanged.
