Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Benchmark Displays Only Slight Lead Over S9
With only a month left until its launch, details for the OnePlus 6 are starting to rapidly clear up as expected. While the company will not change many external details on the device, the Note 9 will still be a vastly different gadget over its predecessor. Today, we've got a rare benchmark for the upcoming phablet. Take a look below for more details.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Surfaces On GeekBench With Exynos 9810 And 6GB RAM
This year, the tables were reversed in smartphone processors as Samsung's Exynos 9810 took the backfoot in performance. The processor is underclocked on the Galaxy S9 and manages to surpass the 845 in only a handful of tests. Today's Galaxy Note 9 GeekBench 4 leak displays the device with the Exynos 9810 so it's interesting to see whether Samsung chooses to change any details with the phablet next month.
The Note 9 with the Exynos 9810 that's been benchmarked today is running on 6GB of RAM. It manages to score 3716 points in single core and 8984 points in multi-core results. For comparison, the Galaxy S9 with the Exynos 9810 and 6GB RAM scores 3319 in single and 8531 points in multi-core tests. This, as you can see marks for only a small gain for the Galaxy Note 9 as it looks that Samsung's architectural limitations on the Exynos 9810 are permanent.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9's Alleged GeekBench Score Displays Only Slight Lead Over The Galaxy S9
For comparison, the Galaxy S9 with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 scores 2461 in single and 8419 points in multi-core results. The lead for the Note 9 is only a hairline which is different from what we've witnessed in the past with the Exynos 9810 and Snapdragon 845. So, it looks like the Note 9 won't change much in performance over the Galaxy S9. Samsung is also expected to launch an 8GB variant of the smartphone, which should result in slightly superior performance.
The biggest feature of the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be its S-Pen, as Samsung will focus extensively on the stylus this year. The S-Pen will double as a remote control for the Galaxy Note 9, allowing users to control music playback and the phablet's camera with it. It will also store and authenticate digital signatures and feature a laser pointer to facilitate business users. The Note 9 will also feature a relocated rear fingerprint sensor and an upgraded rear camera setup, along with a new color option. Thoughts?
