The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 variant with 12 GB RAM, SM-N970V, as seen on Geekbench, has slightly better scores than the Exynos 9825 variant. Last month, we saw the existence of Galaxy SM-N970B in Geekbench. The scores of SM-N970B were just 3557 and 9654 respectively, which is much lower than the SM-N970F found today. This confirms that Samsung has been trying to optimize the performance of Exynos 9825.
