Exynos 9825-powered Galaxy Note 10 hits Geekbench
Those who like to spend their time looking out for new entries on Geekbench have spotted the SM-N970F for the first time back in late May, but the latest entry — dated July 15 — is most likely very close to the level of performance that the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 will deliver at launch. This entry is for the Exynos 9825-powered Galaxy Note 10 and it definitely looks promising.
Posted on Twitter by popular leakster Ice universe, the aforementioned benchmark result includes a single-core score of 4,495 and a multi-core result of 10,223. The device tested has 8 GB of memory and its scores are in line with those posted as replies to the initial message by some users of Exynos-powered Samsung Galaxy S10+ flagships. These scores go as high as 4,515 for the single-core tests and 10,626 for multi-core ones.
While all the above might not be that bad, two upcoming chips must be taken into account: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus and the Apple A13 Bionic, which are expected to be faster than the Exynos 9825 by a significant margin. The good part is that the Qualcomm-powered Note 10 is expected to use the Snapdragon 855 Plus. The bad part is that Samsung might not have enough chips to cover the demand, especially since the production of Exynos chips might be disrupted by the recent trade limitations imposed by the Japanese government.
What do you think about the Exynos 9825-powered Galaxy Note 10? Would you get it as it is, wait for a more powerful variant to show up, or simply move on and grab one of the flagships provided by Samsung's rivals?
