Samsung Galaxy S9 Specifications Leaked In Benchmark Listings
Samsung Galaxy S9 will be the first high profile smartphone of 2018 with its launch expected to take place in March. While there isn’t much known about the device other than a few obvious aspects, a new benchmark listing has provided some information regarding the device’s performance.
New benchmark results for a Samsung smartphone with the model number SM-G960F – widely expected to the global version of the Galaxy S9 – have appeared on the Geekbench website. The smartphone will most likely be powered by the new Exynos 9810 chipset, which was announced earlier in November. The phone scores 2680 on the single-core Geekbench 4 test and a 7787 on the multi-core test. While the scores are impressive, the smartphone doesn’t even come close to iPhone X‘s single-core score of 4197 and multi-core score of 10051.
The Galaxy S9 will have the same screen size as the Galaxy S8 and similarly the Galaxy S9+ will have the same screen size as the Galaxy S8+. What will be different is the size of the bezels. The top and bottom bezels will be thinner than the ones found on the 2017 flagship phones. There were rumours that the Galaxy S9 will have a screen-embedded fingerprint sensor but, a recent report claims that Samsung will introduce this technology only in the Galaxy Note9 in late 2018. This means that the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S9 will remain at the back of the phone but, might have a new position.
Samsung, in all likelihood, will also revive the ‘Mini’ lineup by launching a Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini with a screen size under the 5-inch mark and same specifications.
