Disappointing Geekbench Score For Samsung S10+
The most highly anticipated phones from Samsung’s stable have always been their Galaxy S series. This year, they will have three or four variants of the phone. There will be an affordable Lite version as well. Just a few days back, it was revealed that the Galaxy S10 will have 6GB RAM and Android 9 OS out of the box. It was also seen on the Geekbench score that the phone would be powered by an Exynos 9820 SoC.
Now new scores have surfaced. It seems like two of the Samsung’s flagship phone variants will be powered by Snapdragon 855 as well. With Samsung phones, it is often observed that the Exynos processors score considerably lesser than the phones powered by Snapdragon’s latest SoCs. The S10+ proves that point yet again.
The two variants of the S10+ have one that features an Exynos 9820 and Snapdragon 855. The one with the Snapdragon scores 3413 on Single Core and 10256 on Multi Core. On the other hand, the S10+ with the Exynos processor scores 3248 on Single Core and a meagre 7999 on Multi Core. It is also noteworthy that this score is even lower than the non- plus version. That version scored a decent 4382 on Single Core and 9570 on Multi Core. This version also features the same Exynos processor.
Other rumours that have made headlines regarding the phone include a punch hole camera at the front, better battery among other things. A tenyearchallenge teaser by Samsung was recently shared by a popular tipster on a social networking website. This might give us indication of what else is to come from Samsung. The teaser showcases two camera styles. One having a vertical four camera layout and another with three cameras at the back. The teaser also shows a floating phone but we are not sure if the company just wants to show that it is waterproof, or the phone will actually float!

The launch of the Samsung S10, S10 Lite and S10+ are scheduled for February 20 and we will just have to wait and see how the phone performs and how it is priced to get a better idea of it’s value for money.
