Leak Confirms The Samsung Galaxy S8+ And That It Will Run On The Snapdragon 835 SoC
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8+ (Plus) launch event is scheduled for later this month on 29 March, 2017. However, ahead of its launch, a Geekbench score has revealed that the Galaxy S8+ will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset.
Geekbench, in its benchmark testing, also confirmed the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus’ specifications and revealed top-notch performance details. The leak was first posted on Slashleaks, but also is on PrimateLabs’ website.
The listing states scores of 1929 (single-core) and 6084 (multi-core) for a Samsung device called Samsung SM-G955U. The device runs Android 7.0 Nougat, and operates on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. The Samsung device, speculated to be Samsung Galaxy S8+, packs 4GB of RAM. A clear indication that the chipset is Snapdragon 835 is seen from the “motherboard” that Geekbench specifies as MSM8998, a model number that has been confirmed by Neowin to be assigned to the Snapdragon 835 SoC.
This suggests that the Samsung SM-G955U is a device that will carry a chipset, which is available for only flagship devices this year. After its launch on March 29 this year, the two phones Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus are expected to go on sale on April 21.
