A Samsung smartphone with model number SM-G965U1 powered by Snapdragon 845 has recently surfaced on Geekbench.

The smartphone has scored 2,422 on single-core and 8,351 on multi-core tests. The result suggests that Snapdragon 845 brings 27 percent and 32 percent improvement in single-core and multi-core performance over its predecessor Snapdragon 835. The scores seem to be high when compared with that of Snapdragon 835, but it can’t quite match the performance of A11 Bionic chip powering Apple’s iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
While benchmark scores just reveal part of the performance story, what really matters is the normal day-to-day performance. The listing shows that Samsung SM-G965U1 has 5GB RAM, which could be indicative of the 6GB RAM variant. The rumors suggest that Samsung plans to launch Galaxy S9 with 4GB RAM while the larger Galaxy S9+ gets 6GB RAM. The listing also confirms that Galaxy S9 duo will launch with Android Oreo out-of-the-box.
Samsung has suddenly started falling behind smaller brands when it comes to software updates. It has recently started rolling out Oreo beta for the Galaxy S8, and its flagship devices are not expected to get final version before the launch of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. It is likely that Samsung will implement Project Treble, which separates the base version of Android from the custom UI offered by Android smartphone makers.
The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, the successors to Galaxy S8 duo, are expected to launch during the first quarter of 2018. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ design were accidentally leaked by Samsung itself suggesting minor improvements and relocation of fingerprint sensor below the camera module.
The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will launch with Snapdragon 845 in the US while other markets are expected to get models with Exynos chipset. Samsung is said to be reserving the dual rear camera setup for Galaxy S9+ while Galaxy S9 gets single camera. The smartphones have leaked multiple times in the past leaving very little to the imagination.
