Eagle-eyed Geekbench users recently spotted that benchmark scores for the Exynos 8895 chipset have appeared in the software's database. As the Exynos 8895 is one of the chipsets that will power the Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 will power the device in some regions), these benchmarks give us our first look at how the highly-anticipated Galaxy S8+ might preform in the wild.

The widely-used benchmarking CPU utility Geekbench is a mainstay of mobile device reviews, as reviewers seek an objective metric by which to rank the performance of a device’s processor. In addition to providing a benchmarking tool, Geekbench also offers a searchable database of devices and processors, allowing users to see how their device stacks up to the competition.

Samsung needs the S8 line of devices to be a hit after the disaster that was the exploding Galaxy Note 7, and based on these benchmarks, Samsung has at least managed to build a phone with high performance capabilities. On Geekbench’s scale, the Exynos 8895 scored an impressive 1978 for single-core performance and an equally impressive 6375 for multi-core performance. These scores put a Exynos 8895 equipped Galaxy S8+ above the Google Pixel XL, the Iphone 7 Plus, and the One Plus 3T, to name just a few current-generation flagships.

These benchmarks are preliminary and as such the scores for the final phone may be different, but these numbers are at least an indication that the Galaxy S8+ will be a very high-performance flagship. Hopefully, such impressive performance will make the Galaxy S8+ a commercial success.

I joined Notebookcheck at the end of 2016 after being a dedicated reader of the website for the past six years, occasionally tuning out various lecturers to read reviews of the latest gaming and business laptops. As a writer and tech enthusiast, I focus mostly on smartphones, the latest trending gadgets like VR headsets, and the businesses that create it all. When I’m not admiring the latest graphics cards, I write short fiction and arrange for a cappella.
