Impressive Scores

The Samsung Galaxy S8 that is driven by the Snapdragon 835 has been seen on Geekbench, scoring more than 6000.

In case of the single core tests on the benchmarking platform, Geekbench, the Samsung Galaxy S8 scored 2121. However, in the multi core tests, the Galaxy S8 scored the highest on record, 7101. This means that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is even faster than Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus, but it is slower than the latter phone in case of the single core tests.

Exynos Variant

The Exynos variant of the Samsung Galaxy S8 has outscored the Snapdragin 835 variant of the device even earlier. It was seen recently that the Samsung Galaxy S8 running on Snapdragon scored only 162,101 on AnTuTu, and the one running on Exynos 8895 had scored a high 174,155.

This is the 2nd Gen Exynos 8895 processor belonging to the Exynos 9, and it makes use of the 10 nm FinFET technology. The Exynos 8895 processor on the Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with octa core chipset. The 1st Gen chipset is called the Exynos 8890 and it was used for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones last year.

Exynos 8895 Chipset

The latest Exynos 8895 SoC, running on the Samsung Galaxy S8 this year consumes around 40% less power. It also offers an enhanced performance by around 27%, when compared to the earlier variant, the Exynos 8890. The latest variant, 8895 SoC, can offer support for a maximum of 4K, UHD display screen and support two rear cameras of 28 MP and 16 MP resolutions, along with a 16 MP front camera.

Galaxy Note 8

There are rumors that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which will be released sometime in August or in September this year, will also run on both the chipset versions, that is, the Snapdragon 835 as well as the Exynos 8895 chipset. It is therefore rumored that the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 will feature dual cameras that are mounted on the rear of the phablet.

Trumps Snapdragon 835 Chipset

It can be seen that the Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC is a high-end chipset and has trumped the Snapdragon 835 SoC in many aspects. However, one of the problems of the Exynos chipsets is that it has limited support from networks. There is news that Samsung has plans for releasing another mid range chipset, Exynos 7872 of the 7 Octa series, which will offer support for all the networking bands present in China.
