Galaxy S9 Plus posts monster benchmark scores ahead of reveal

The Galaxy S9 Plus has surfaced on Geekbench – and the results it posted are nothing to scoff at. 

First spotted by Dutch outlet Telefoon Abonnement, the Galaxy S9 Plus scored 3773 in the single-core and 9024 in the multi-core test – putting it above the standard Galaxy S9, which returned 3648 and 8894, on the official Geekbench table.

What’s interesting is that the aforementioned Galaxy S9 was benchmarked with Samsung’s in-house Exynos 9810 CPU, while the Snapdragon (845) variant posted a median score of 2400 in the single-core and 8400 in the multi-core test.

Beyond the score, the listing states that the Galaxy S9 Plus has 6GB of RAM and ships running Android 8.0 Oreo. Recent leaks and rumours claim that it’ll also be armed with a dual-camera setup (12MP + 12MP) and at least a 3,500mAh cell.

It’s worth noting, however, that benchmark results aren’t indicative of real world performance and Geekbench is notorious for hosting falsified results, so we’d recommend applying a considerable dose of saline solution to the listing.

Let’s be clear, though: We aren’t saying the Exynos 9810 variant won’t be more powerful than the Snapdragon model. We’re just pointing out that someone could have manipulated the results before they were indexed on the online database.

Samsung confirmed in January that it will take the wraps off the Galaxy S9 at a dedicated event ahead of MWC 2018 in Barcelona, Spain on February 25. We’ll be reporting live from the floor, so keep your browser pointed to Trusted Reviews.
