Samsung’s Galaxy Note8 phablet is one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year and indeed this quarter. The smartphone is to be officially unveiled in an Unpack event on the 23rd of August in New York. But that has not stopped multiple leaks of the device surfacing and today the phablet flagship was spotted on Geekbench.
Geekbench identifies the handset as the SM-N950F, this is an international variant because the SoC at its heart is the in-house Exynos 8895. During this benchmark run the octa-core CPU ran at a clock speed of ~1.69GHz. The international variant can also be confirmed to be coming with 6GB of RAM and a heavily customised TouchWiz-ed version of Android v.7.1.1, Nougat. With this internal hardware, the Samsung Galaxy Note8 put up a score of 1984 and 6116 for single-core and multicore tests respectively. The US SKU of the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is to come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835.
These numbers are solid compared to any of the current generation flagships featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC but are lower compared to the scores polled by a Samsung Galaxy S8 featuring the Exynos 8895 SoC. This can be attributed to the lower clock speed of the chipset and less mature software on the Galaxy Note8.
