Samsung recently unveiled their latest phone, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 which comes loaded with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, the same CPU which powers Samsung S9, S9+ which was released in March this year. Similar to S9, the new Note 9 also provides a 6 GB RAM or 8 GB RAM if the user opts for 512 GB inbuilt storage. The Galaxy Note 9 comes in 4 colours namely, Midnight Blck, Ocean Blue, Lavender Purple, and Metallic Black.
Tom’s Guide ran a series of benchmark tests on Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and compared the results to that of the iPhone X, other competing Android mobiles benchmark test results.
Starting with Geekbench 4, the Note 9 managed a multi-core score of 8,876, better than the previous Note 8 which had a 6,576 score. The 6.4-inch phablet also outperformed Samsung S9+, which makes it the fastest Samsung handset today. OnePlus 6 was the only Android device to score higher marks than Note 9 with a score of 9,088. Apple’s A11 Bionic SOC, used in the iPhone X with a 3 GB RAM, outperformed all handsets with a multi-core score of 10,357.
Now coming to the graphics testing part, the publication ran the demanding 3DMark slingshot extreme 3.1 test, to discover that Note 9 beat its counterpart S9+ by scoring 4,639. Apple and OnePlus both defeated Samsung Note 9, by scoring 4,994 and 5,124 respectively. 3D mark seems to have optimized their 3D test after Tom’s last evaluation, which showed S9+ to hit a tally of 5,793 while iPhone X notched 3,998. Today’s results don’t come as a surprise as Samsung is using a fairly old in the tooth Snapdragon processor.
Benchmark may change this fall, as Apple is expected to release new iPhone models to be powered by the next generation’A12′ CPU. Not much is known about the processor, but it’s speculated to be fabricated using TSMC’s 7-nanometer process and designed in-house.
Geekbench on June 12th saw an unverified iPhone 11.2 device entry, with the ‘A12’ CPU it’s respective single- and multi-core scores were 4,673 and 10,912 respectively, and a compute score of 21,691. The unverified test results are significantly better than the iPhone X’s scores which averages 4,206 and 10,128 in single-multi-core tests respectively. And a compute score of 15,234.
