The new crop of Samsung Galaxy flagship devices are set to launch in a little over a week and we’ve pretty much been subjected to — and consequently, subjecting you to — a ton of leaks for Galaxy S8 and S8+. We’ve pretty much seen how it looks like and we expect it to run buttery smooth thanks to its internals, but just how good will the phone be? While we can only answer that question once we get our hands on the device ourselves, benchmark scores can always offer a peek into a device’s overall performance. While looking around for more tech news to share to you guys, we happened upon Benchmarks for the Samsung Galaxy S8+ and it seems the Samsung Galaxy S8 devices running on the Korean company’s homegrown chipset outscore the ones sporting the latest flagship SoC from Qualcomm.

Let’s check out the benchmark scores for the device labeled as SM-G995F or the Galaxy S8+ running on Samsung’s Exynos 8895 chipset.

And here are the Benchmark results comparing it to Samsung Galaxy S8+ sporting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and other smartphones in the market.

While benchmark scores pail in comparison to actual real world use, it’s still a pretty good indication of how these devices run. The single core section of the GeekBench 4 tests may give a slight edge to the Exynos 8895 at 1978 compared to the Snapdragon’s 1929, but you can see a significant lead on its multicore test where the Exynos 8895 scores a 6375 to the Snapdragon’s 6084.

We’ll have to see just how smooth the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ actually run when the phones are launch towards the end of the month.
