We expect that a lot of information about upcoming flagships Samsung, the manufacturer will provide us at the exhibition CES. But already now we know a lot about such models as Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. Today we got new S9 Plus graphics and a few digits from the tests.
The Galaxy S9 Plus model appeared in the Geekbench database. Information that can be extracted from this source suggests two things.
First, Snapdragon 845 is actually a powerful processor.
Geekbench showed 2422 points as a result of testing individual cores and 8351 points in case of analysis of several cores. Comparing this with the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus data, we see a performance jump. The flagship in 2017 showed the following results: 1929 and 6083 points.
Secondly, S9 Plus (which is designated by the symbols SM-G965U), will be equipped with 6 GB of RAM and Android Oreo. We knew this before, but now we have one more proof.
And we also received photos from the manufacturer of covers for smartphones, the company Olixar. They show the expected differences between the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus associated with the various equipment of the main camera (the S9 will have one lens, and the S9 Plus will have a dual camera).
The photos also show the location of the fingerprint scanner, now it is under the camera lens, and not from the side. But we do not have 100% certainty that the company did the covers according to Samsung, as there is no evidence of exactly this location of the components.
The release date for Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus is still unknown, although some sources indicate the end of February. For more detailed data you will have to wait, watch our news and you will be the first to learn new information.
