The three most eagerly anticipated handsets remaining to be released this year are (in no particular order) the LG V30, the Apple iPhone 8 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The latter will be the first of the trio to be introduced, with Samsung doing the honors August 23rd at its next Unpacked event. The high-end phablet will be under the microscope after last year’s model, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, was recalled twice and finally removed from shelves. A series of explosions that were ultimately blamed on battery flaws were responsible for the phablet’s disappearance from the scene.
Today, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was discovered on Geekbench carrying the SM-N950F model number. The uniut used in the test is an international variant which means that the Exynos 8895 chipset was employed. In fact, during the testing the chipset’s octo-core CPU ran at a clock speed of 1.69GHz. U.S. models will feature the Snapdragon 835 SoC under the hood. The Geekbench test also revealed that Samsung will place 6GB of RAM inside the device. Android 7.1.1 will be pre-installed
The Galaxy Note 8 scored 1984 in the Geekbench single-core test, while the multi-core test resulted in a tally of 6116. Both of those scores are short of the numbers put up by an Exynos 8895 powered Samsung Galaxy S8 back in May. The latter scored 2121 and 7101 in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.
