We've got only a handful of days left before Samsung launches the Galaxy S10 lineup. This year's smartphones from Samsung have leaked regularly on the rumor mill, just like their predecessors did. As we head to Samsung's launch event in San Francisco, it's time to take one final look at what to expect from the larger Galaxy S10 Plus in terms of performance. Take a look below for more details.
Galaxy S10 Plus Powered By The Exynos 9820 Disappoints One Last Time Before Impending Launch
Benchmark leaks for the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus aren't novel. The first of these took place on the 27th of November 2018. This one was an Antutu score, courtesy of notorious tipster Ice_Universe, and showed the smartphone achieving 325,076 points. This device was running on Samsung's Exynos 9820. The second leak took place in January, and this time we were treated to GeekBench scores for the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
This device was powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 and it scored 3413 points in single and 10,256 points in multi-core tests. A second GeekBench leak for the same smartphone painted a slightly better picture. In this run, the S10 Plus scored 4472 points in single and 10,387 points in multi-core tests. With these details in mind, let's now take a look at the Galaxy S10 Plus' latest GeekBench and Antutu runs, which surface a mere six days before the smartphone is launched.
In today's leak, the S10 Plus scores 326,185 points in Antutu. In GeekBench, the smartphone scores 4450 points in single and 9753 points in multi-core tests. These aren't too far off from earlier leaks, and go to show how we shouldn't expect any major performance improvements on the Exynos 9820 - despite the processor reducing node size to '8nm'. To make things even more interesting, both the Antutu and GeekBench devices are running with 12GB of RAM on board.
Both these scores are behind the Snapdragon 855, which scores 362,210 points in Antutu. Qualcomm's 7nm processor also scores 3501 points in single and 11,189 points in multi-core GeekBench tests. Therefore, the only aspect where the Exynos 9820 (and the S10 Plus with the processor) will beat its American counterpart is GeekBench's single-core tests.
Of course, as the 855's scores are those of a reference device, we'll have to withhold final judgment before concrete results are available. Nevertheless, when we talk about real-life performance, if these scores hold in real life, then the Exynos 9820 will have better app load times. The Snapdragon 855, on the other hand, will offer better performance when computing strenuous workloads.
