With the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 weeks away, more details have started popping on the internet. According to the latest report by PhoneArena, the device was spotted on the popular benchmarking website Geekbench. According to the listing, the device was running the upcoming Exynos 9820 SoC with the model number SM-N960X indicating that it may be the unlocked version of the Galaxy Note 9. The device scored 12,246 on the multi-core test and 4,089 on the single core test. As pointed by the report, Note 9 along with the Exynos 9820 beats the current Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus the comes with Exynos 9810.

For the sake of comparison, the S9 Plus scored 8679 on the multi-core test and 3,372 on the single-core test. The report went out to point that the device listed in the benchmark manages to beat the multi-core score of the top iPhone in the market while inching closer when it comes to the single core score. The reason for this performance bump is likely because of the 7nm fabrication process to manufacture the SoC as reported previously.

Though, the thing here to note is that Apple is also planning to introduce 7nm-based A12 SoC with the 2018 iPhone models. So it is very much likely that these devices will experience a similar bump in performance keeping them ahead of the Android devices.

Other details revealed by the Geekbench listing point out that the device runs 4GB RAM which does not fall in line with earlier reports that state that the device will come with a minimum of 6GB RAM. Earlier reports have indicated that Samsung will launch the Exynos 9820 along with its unannounced flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S10 next year.
