Samsung Galaxy S9 most likely will be the first smartphone in the market with Snapdragon 845 chipset. The latest Qualcomm's Octa-core Snapdragon 845 benchmark recently appears online which suggests the details regarding the sheer power of the latest chipset. The Samsung Galaxy S9 series global variant will have Exynos 9810 chipset. This chipset also appears in the benchmark to showcase its real strength.
The benchmarks were expected as the official announcement of Galaxy S9 series isn't far away. Today the Galaxy S9+ AnTuTu benchmark listing appears online with the Snapdragon 845 chipset and 6GB RAM. The standard Galaxy S9 is expected to have 4GB RAM. Unfortunately, we can't confirm the authenticity of the benchmark as the Galaxy S9 and S9+ devices yet not officially announced. As we already know one can easily fabricate the benchmark results, So we will recommend to take it with a grain of salt.
As per listing the Galaxy S9+ bearing model number SM-G9650 appears at benchmark, this specific model will be released in Hong Kong. The AnTuTu benchmark listing suggests Galaxy S9+ scores 265267 points which makes one of the most powerful smartphones in the market.
