The performance of the international version of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with the model number SM-N950F was measured in the popular benchmark GeekBench. The new flagship from South Korea scored 1984 points in a single-core test and 6116 – in a multi-core test.
Of course, this is not the most outstanding result at the moment (even the “spring” Galaxy S8 + shows the best results). At the moment, it can be attributed to the fact that the prototype was tested in GeekBench with raw software, and everything will be fine by August 23 on the smartphone’s output.
However, it is valuable, in fact, another: the international modification of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 SM-N950F is based on the same chipset Exynos 8895, as the “eighth galaxy”. So, we will not see any new more powerful processors inside the smartphones from the Korean giant until the end of the year.
Moreover, this means that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 versions for China, Japan and the US will get Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, and not the hypothetical overclocked Snapdragon 836. But in the basic modification, the smartphone should still get not 4 but 6 GB of RAM. In the “top” version, there may even be as many as 8 GB.
It is assumed that the eighth Note will receive a 6.3-inch Infinity Display screen with a QHD resolution of 2960 × 1440 pixels (aspect ratio of 18.5 to 9) and curved sides, a traditional S-Pen with several new gestures, a 12 Mp + 12 Mp dual camera with a hardware Zoom and battery capacity of 3300 mAh.
Presentation of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is scheduled for August 23 this year and will be held in New York. “Live” smartphone can be felt already at the international exhibition IFA 2017 in Berlin at the company’s stand along with other innovations, among which, in particular, the fitness bracelet Samsung Gear Fit 3 is expected.
