Samsung Galaxy S21 with Snapdragon 888 processor lit up in Geekbench
During the announcement of the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform, the Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphone did not appear in the list of the first devices based on the new chip - only rumors about the release of the flagship with the Exynos 2100 processor appeared on the network. But finally, a Samsung gadget with a code number corresponding to the future product appeared in the database of the popular benchmark - this time with a Qualcomm processor.
Based on the results of synthetic testing, the yet-to-be-announced smartphone scored 1075 and 2916 points in the single-and multi-core scenarios, respectively. The device will get 8 GB of RAM and will run Android 11 out of the box.
As a hardware platform, Geekbench indicates an eight-core Lahaina chipset with a base clock frequency of 1.8 GHz - as you know, this code name hides Snapdragon 888. According to rumors, the release of the Samsung Galaxy S21 will take place in early January, and its cost will be from $849.
