Samsung Galaxy S9+ benchmark scores look promising

Samsung Galaxy S9+ benchmark scores look promising

Announced yesterday, Samsung's new mid-range Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus will sport numerous features found on the company's flagship S devices, including a almost full-screen Infinity Display and dual front camera with advanced focusing technology.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ feature horizontally positioned fingerprint scanner beneath the camera sensor. Though on the face of it these specs may appear to be very similar to the ones on the Galaxy S8, there are finer differences in the quality and technical specifications. Like previous years, it is expected to pull the wraps off the Galaxy S9 series in February and release it in the following month. The smaller Galaxy S9 will have a single camera at the back, while the larger model will have the dual-camera module.

For the single-core test, the Samsung device got 2422. The Infinity Display on both the phones is expected to deliver a screen to body ratio of 85 per cent.

Synaptics says that Samsung could put the fingerprint sensor beneath the display but there are not many rumours that say so. Reportedly, the S9 will come with 3200mAh battery, an upgrade from S8's 3000mAh battery.

The device that was spotted on Geekbench runs Android 8.0 Oreo and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset which has eight cores.

There are chances that Samsung could use the newly launched Snapdragon 845 processor in the upcoming Galaxy S9 phones for some markets whereas in other markets including India it will be shipped with a comparable Exynos processor. The unit housing the LED flash and heart rate sensor can be seen sitting on the right side of the camera. Compared to the Galaxy Note 8, the corners of the S9 duo seem to be more curved. There's going to be minor changes in the rear camera setup.
