The Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G has been spotted on Geekbench for the first time ever. Based on its single and multi-core test results, it appears to be a Snapdragon 865-powered variant of the phone. The device specifications showcased in the listing are bound to change, as the device in question is very likely a pre-production model of Samsung's upcoming flagship.
Anil Satyanarayana,

We know very little about the Galaxy Note 20 series at this point. Some leaks have given us a rough idea about what Samsung has in store for us. Based on the differences between the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series that we've seen so far, there shouldn't be too much of a change when it comes to the underlying hardware. There is, however, speculation that Samsung will use a waterfall display on the Galaxy Note 20 series. Samsung's flagship phablet has just made its first appearance on Geekbench.The Galaxy S20+ nets an impressive score of 985 on the Single-Core test and 3220 on the Multi-Core test.

The Galaxy Note 20+'s purported Geekbench listing also sheds some light on the devices' essentials. It appears to be running Android 10 on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC with just 8GB RAM. It is very likely an early prototype of the Galaxy Note 20+, as 5G variants of all Galaxy S20 phones came with at least 12GB RAM, and we see no reason why Samsung will change that with its newer devices. Furthermore, pre-production models of phones often run unoptimized software and hardware, which in turn affects the device's performance.

We should take this Galaxy Note 20+ Geekbench listing with a grain of salt. It is quite easy to fake a listing these days, as it only takes a rooted phone and some rudimentary knowledge of how to modify the 'build.prop' file to pull it off. Assuming that Samsung's production schedule isn't thrown off by the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, we can expect to see the Galaxy Note 20 series make its debut sometime in mid to late August.
