Qualcomm Snapdragon 625-powered Samsung Galaxy J8+ (2018) hits Geekbench
Last month, we heard that the Samsung Galaxy J8 (2018) might be in the works. While that handset is supposed to use a Samsung-made Exynos 7870 processor, it looks like its Plus variant is going to hit the market with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, which is a very popular SoC in the lower mid-range sector of the market nowadays.
Although the upcoming Galaxy J8+ (2018) has not been confirmed by Samsung yet, this handset has been spotted on Geekbench, where its database entry shows the SM-J805G model name. Sadly, there aren't many details that this device's visit at Geekbench revealed. Leaving the Qualcomm MSM8953 chip aside, we can also easily spot Android 8.0 Oreo and 4 GB of memory. The benchmark results shouldn't surprise anyone since the Snapdragon 625 has been around for a while: 749 single-core points and a multi-core score of 3,708.
The Samsung Galaxy J8 (2018) apparently bears the model number SM-J800FN and it is expected to share quite a few design treats and specs with the Plus variant. According to various unofficial reports, the upcoming Galaxy J8 handsets will feature a flat Infinity Display and will drop the physical Home button, so the fingerprint reader will be relocated to the rear.
All the above should be taken with a grain of salt for now, but based on the previous Galaxy J-series launches, we should be ready for these handsets to arrive in Europe this summer.
