A Geekbench record for a “samsung SM-G770F” has been spotted that handily reveals a few details about the mystery smartphone. Some believe this particular device could end up being the Galaxy S10 Lite, which would likely feature a Snapdragon 855 SoC and at least 8 GB of RAM. The SM-G770F manages a powerful multi-core score in the test.

As is widely known by now, Geekbench records can be faked and tampered with, so it would be wise to have some salt to hand to pinch from. This particular entry is for a “samsung SM-G770F”, which may end up being the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. The base of this presumption is that the model code for what is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite has already been spotted, and it was SM-N770F. Also, the model number for the Samsung Galaxy S10e is SM-G970 – so it can be seen why many believe this could be an S10 Lite we are dealing with.

Moving on to the Geekbench record, the presumed Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite performs admirably and will no doubt soon find plenty of fans if it comes at the right price. The database entry states Android 10 as the OS and reports 8 GB RAM (the Galaxy S10e had a base of 6 GB RAM with an 8 GB variant). The processor information points toward Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855, which found its way into regional variants of the original Galaxy S10 series.

As for the scores, the Samsung “Galaxy S10 Lite” manages a respectable 742 points in the single-core test and a blistering 2,604 points in the multi-core benchmark. When placed against the current benchmarked averages, this particular contestant fares well. In the single-core chart for Geekbench 5 the S10 Lite matches its S10 stable-mates at the head of the table (the Galaxy S10e has 746 points). However, it should be pointed out here that these other S10 SKUs feature the Samsung Exynos 9820 chip, while the Galaxy S10 smartphones with the SD 855 feature lower down in the chart (S10e: 685 points).

The rumored Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite really heats things up in multi-core performance. In this chart, the Galaxy S10 devices with the SD 855 are near the top anyway, with the S10e managing a decent average score of 2,402. But the SM-G770F comes up with a record of 2,604, which puts it straight past the S10 SKUs, beyond the Note 10 devices and LG’s G8 ThinQ and Xiaomi’s Mi 9, and close to the current leader OnePlus 7 Pro (2,664 points). If the entry is genuine, then it’s an impressive performance and should make consumers excited about the prospect of owning a more affordable smartphone powerhouse in the form of a Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite.
