Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Snapdragon 845 hits AnTuTu
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 flagships will arrive with both Exynos and Snapdragon processors, as it happened until now. The official launch is now very close, so it should not be surprising that the AnTuTu benchmark results obtained by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845-powered Samsung Galaxy S9+ surfaced online on Weibo.
According to the image mentioned above, the Samsung SM-G9650 runs Android 8.0 Oreo and sports 6 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, and its display has a resolution of 2,220 x 1,080 pixels. Earlier leaks and rumors also mentioned Bluetooth 5.0, wireless charging, AKG speakers, an updated Bixby Vision set of features, slow-motion video shooting, depth sensing stickers, as well as a completely new camera setup.
The 265,267 score apparently achieved by the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is higher by a significant margin than all the top-ranking handsets currently listed on AnTuTu's website. The only two devices able to score above 200,000 so far are the iPhone 8 Plus (217,385) and the iPhone 8 (212,175). The following three handsets are the OnePlus 5 (181,047), the Exynos 8895 Octa-powered Samsung Note 8 (178,079), and the HTC U11 (177,501).
At last, there is one more thing that needs to be highlighted: the impressive score of the Samsung SM-G9650 cannot be found in AnTuTu's database yet, so we should take this story with a grain of salt for now. After all, a jump in performance of over 50 percent from a generation to another is not something usual.
