As we telephone nerds know, Geekbench is among the hottest smartphone benchmarking apps. Because of its recognition, even smartphone producers use Geekbench to check the efficiency of their system, and since Geekbench shares all of the exams information with the neighborhood, the platform has at all times been a superb and dependable supply of latest leaks for smartphones which can be but to launch.
Yesterday, an unreleased Samsung telephone surfaced on the Geekbench platform and going by the timing and the mannequin quantity displayed on the Geekbench web page, it’s virtually sure that the smartphone in query is the upcoming flagship from Samsung, the Galaxy S9. Whereas the scores make it clear that the Galaxy S9 is bringing an enormous efficiency enchancment over its predecessor, the uncooked energy nonetheless can’t match the efficiency of iPhone X. The Galaxy S9 has delivered a single-core rating of 2680 in opposition to iPhone X’s rating of 4199. Whereas the iPhones have at all times crushed Qualcomm powered Android flagships (together with Samsung Galaxy S9) in single-core exams, this marks the primary yr when the iPhone X outperforms the Galaxy S9 even within the multicore check.
As you may see within the image above, the multicore rating of the Galaxy S9 is just under the 8,000 mark coming at 7,787. Compared, the iPhone X scores nicely above 10,000. That’s an enormous efficiency hole in the case of uncooked energy alone. Whereas it may be argued that Samsung Galaxy S9 might be nonetheless in its testing section and the scores will enhance with the ultimate product, I don’t see such a drastic enchancment coming with efficiency tuning alone. That mentioned, a lot of the customers is not going to see a efficiency distinction between the 2 units in the case of day-to-day utilization. Nonetheless, it’s mind-boggling to see iPhone X outperforming Samsung Galaxy S9 with such an enormous margin.
