The official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus is just a few days away and these smartphones have already been certified by FCC and 3C as well. The Galaxy S8 Plus with the Snapdragon 835 processor was spotted at Geekbench just a few days ago, whereas the Exynos variant of the device is getting benchmarked now. The Galaxy S8 Plus (SM-G955F) with Exynos 8895 SoC running on Android 7.0 Nougat was spotted at the Geekbench listing.
What’s interesting here is that the single core and multicore scores of the Exynos 8895 SoC are slightly higher compared to those of the Snapdragon 835 SoC which is also an octa-core processor with clock speed of 1.90GHz. The device benchmarked at Geekbench comes with 4GB of RAM, which is assumed to be the global variant, while a 6GB RAM variant is supposed to be in the works for China region only.
That apart, we are already aware of the rumoured specifications of the Galaxy S8 Plus which is expected to feature a 6.2-inch display. It will have a rear-facing fingerprint sensor, a 12-megapixel camera and will be IP68 water and dust resistant as well. The official launch of both the smartphones is expected to take place on March 29 where more details will be disclosed.
