Samsung is only months away unveiling their next flagship, the Galaxy S9 duo. We already know how it will look from all angles, kudos to the renders by popular leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer widely known as @OnLeaks. And now, Galaxy S9 with model number SM-G965U1 gets spotted on Geekbench confirming most of the specs with an impressive score.
According to the Geekbench listing, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 will have the model number SM-G965U1. It will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 processor which was unveiled few days ago. However, in some regions like India, the Galaxy S9 duo will be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 SoC. Further, the processor will be coupled with 6GB of RAM. And the phone will run on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
Actually, these were the expected specs and now they are confirmed. But, what is more interesting is the benchmark score of Snapdragon 845. The phone scores 2422 for Single Core and 8351 for Multi Core performances. Thus, the Galaxy S9 becomes Samsung’s first smartphone to score such high score. Even it could be the first Android smartphone with higher Geekbench score if it gets released before any other OEM’s flagship.
On the design front, the Galaxy S9 duo will be similar to the Galaxy S8 duo except for the new fingerprint placement and dual cameras on the plus version. There is no exact date available regarding the announcement of these new devices. But, it is sure that it will be announced in the first quarter next year.
