Samsung Galaxy S22 surfaces on Geekbench, revealing details of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898
Qualcomm will unveil the Snapdragon 898 over the next few months, and details of the flagship chipset have slowly leaked over the past few days. The latest leak gives some information on the core details and onboard GPU of the SoC by way of a Geekbench test of the Galaxy S22.
Apparently, the Snapdragon 898 will feature Qualcomm's own Adreno 730 on the GPU side. Early benchmarks indicate that the Snapdragon 898 could offer slightly worse peak GPU performance than its rival, the Exynos 2200. Throttling is said to be less, however. The Snapdragon 898 is listed with one big Cortex-X2 core clocked at 3.0 GHz, three cores clocked at 2.5 GHz, and four cores clocked at 1,79 GHz. We expect those to be the new Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510 cores respectively.
The Geekbench test was run on what appears to be the vanilla Galaxy S22, with model number "SM-G901U". The phone is shown with 8 GB of RAM, and running Android 12. None of those are surprising.
