A new Samsung smartphone has been found listed on Geekbench benchmarking website, revealing its key specs and features. The smartphone bears a model number SM-G965U1, which many guesses is the upcoming Galaxy S9+.
The model is Samsung Galaxy S9+ because it bears a similar model numbers just like Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy S7 Edge that ends with number ‘5’. Coming to the listing, Geekbench reveals that the smartphone has scored 2422 points in single-core test and 8351 in multi-core test. The numbers are particularly higher, but still not enough to beat Apple’s latest A11 Bionic chip, which is present in iPhone X.
Moving on, the listing reveals that the smartphone will run on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. The phone will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and it will bear a 6GB of RAM. Further, just like previous S-series models, one could also expect an Exynos variant with same capabilities as well.
Meanwhile, new renders of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ has been leaked online, which gives us some hint about the upcoming smartphones. The leak comes from the case maker Olixar and it shows both the smartphones wrapped in ultra-thin cases.
The renders show that both the smartphones will bear almost similar design language as we have seen in Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Interestingly, the case leak reveals that the Galaxy S9 will come with a single camera setup, while the elder sibling will be loaded with dual rear cameras.
It seems that Samsung will fix the most annoying placement of the fingerprint sensor with the Galaxy S9 duo. The fingerprint sensor can be seen located right underneath the rear camera, which is a welcome move as it will make the sensor more accessible.
To recollect some key specifications, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are reported to arrive with Snapdragon 845 or Samsung’s recently unveiled Exynos 9810 chipset both of which are built on 10nm process. Also, both the S9 and S9+ will come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
