The South Korean giant Samsung recently confirmed the next Unpacked event will be on August 7th in NYC. At the event, the company will be unveiling the next flagship phablet lineup, the Galaxy Note 10 lineup. Thanks to the continuous streak of rumors and leaks we have a pretty good idea regarding the upcoming phablet from Samsung. Recently Qualcomm unveiled a new Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC for the gaming smartphones with enhanced AI and VR capabilities. The Snapdragon 855 Plus is the successor of Snapdragon 855 which is currently powering almost all premium Android flagships in the market.
Soon after the Snapdragon 855 Plus announcement the first thing on everyone’s mind? Which upcoming smartphones will have Qualcomm’s fastest SoC till date under the hood. Today Galaxy Note 10’s appearance in Geekbench confirms that the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 won’t have the Snapdragon 855 Plus. Instead, the device will be running on the company’s own Exynos 9825 SoC which might be faster than the Snapdragon 855.
As per Geekbench’s listing the Galaxy Note 10 bearing model number SM-970F achieves 4495 points on the single-core test. In the multi-core test, the device achieves 10223 points. The scores are quite close to the latest iPhones. Last month the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5G variant appeared on Geekbench with similar hardware. However, the scores of SM-N976B weren’t as high as the SM-N970F.

The Galaxy Note 10 Snapdragon 855 powered variant also appeared at the Geekbench. It lags behind with 3529 points on single-core test whereas it achieves higher scores on the multi-core test with 10840 points. Just for the sake of reminder, the iPhone XS Max is still the fastest smartphone with a score of 4800 on the single-core test. On the multi-core bench, it achieves 11200 points.
Like all Samsung premium flagships, the Galaxy Note 10 will be available in configurations. The US and Chinese model will be running on the Qualcomm chipset. Whereas the global variant comes with the Exynos SoC.
The benchmark listing shows the Exynos 9825 brings significant improvement over its predecessor in terms of performance. However, the Geekbench scores ahead of the official launch are always not final. That’s why we will recommend taking the aforementioned Geekbench scores with a pinch of salt.
