The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip6 has shown up on Geekbench. It is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy and scores 14,276 points in the OpenCL benchmark.

Samsung is rumoured to launch the Galaxy Z Flip6 earlier than usual in mid-July. It will supposedly be offered in Exynos and Snapdragon variants. The latter has just shown up on Geekbench with the SM-F741U monicker, tacitly implying that it is in the final stages of testing. We know it is the Galaxy Z Flip6 because its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip5 (curr. $953 on Amazon), carried the SM-F731x model number.

The listing confirms that Samsung will use a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy on the Galaxy Z Flip6, as evidenced by its CPU core clocks. Performance-wise, the Galaxy Z Flip6 scores 15,054 in Geekbench's Vulkan benchmark and 14,276 in OpenCL. This particular variant runs Android 14 packs a paltry 8 GB of memory, which is disappointing for a flagship-class smartphone launched in 2024.

Then again, even the 2025-bound Galaxy S25 is expected to follow suit, so it is clear that Samsung is set in its ways, despite recently launching its blazing-fast LPDDR5X modules. This is more or less consistent with other Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy-powered devices, although the Galaxy Z Flip6 may struggle under sustained workloads given its form factor.
