Samsung Galaxy S10 with Exynos 9820 SoC appears on Geekbench, Beats the Snapdragon 855

Samsung’s Galaxy S10 is one the most anticipated devices of 2019. Early renders have revealed that it will come with an OLED display featuring a punch hole cut-out for the front-facing camera, or as Samsung likes to call it, an Infinity O display.

Today, a Korean Exynos variant of the Galaxy S10 has appeared on Geekbench, a popular benchmarking website. The model benchmarked is labeled ‘SM-G973N’, sporting an Exynos 9820 chipset and 6GB of Ram. The benchmarks of the Galaxy S10 running on Android 9 Pie reveal a Single Core 4382 score, which is far ahead of its common android counterpart, the Snapdragon 855; by 969 points to be precise.

The Multi-Core 9570 score, however, does not seem to be that impressive. It is still behind the major competition, where the iPhones with the A12 Bionic chip take the first place followed by the Kirin 980 (flagship SoC by Huawei) and the Snapdragon 855.

Samsung releases two variants of each of its flagship devices every year, one with the Snapdragon SoC on par with the competing smartphones in US and China and the other with the Exynos chip designed in-house by Samsung for the European and major Asian markets including India. The two variants of the Galaxy S10 siblings this year will feature the Snapdragon 855 processor and the Exynos 9820 chipset. The Snapdragon variant will come with a better multi-core performance whereas the Exynos one will be better at single-core workloads.
