Samsung Galaxy Fold fails to impress
Although it will retail for more than twice its price, the Samsung Galaxy Fold seems to be slower than the Galaxy S10e. According to an alleged Geekbench entry — that has already been removed from the benchmark database — Samsung's foldable is also slower than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855-powered Royole FlexPai.

With a starting price of US$1,980 and expected to hit the market in about a month — on April 26, to be accurate — the Samsung Galaxy Fold should also be the fastest Android handset around. However, it seems that Samsung's foldable flagship might not be as fast as expected, although it is possible that the SM-F900F that surfaced on Geekbench was a sample with some hardware or/and software issues.

According to the screenshot published by Nashville Chatter — there is no longer a "samsung SM-F900F" device listed on Geekbench right now, so the entry was probably deleted for unknown reasons shortly after it was spotted — the upcoming Galaxy Fold is slower than both the Samsung Galaxy S10e and Royole FlexPai.

The scores of the Samsung Galaxy Fold model mentioned above are 3,418 and 9,703. The Royole FlexPai averages at 3,750 and 10,000 for the Geekbench single- and multi-core tests, not to mention that it only sports 6 GB of memory compared to the 12 GB inside Samsung's foldable. In both cases, the processor is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855. The Samsung Galaxy S10e scores more than 4,300 and 10,000 in the aforementioned tests, so this definitely does not look good for the Galaxy Fold.

In the end, this Geekbench entry should be taken with a lot of salt, but it definitely raises a question: what if Samsung has troubles with the innards of the Galaxy Fold and removed the benchmark to avoid taking a hit on the stock market? Is it unfair to expect the best performance in a Snapdragon 855-powered device for almost US$2,000? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
