Now that the OnePlus 6 is officially out, we know that the smartphone is significantly faster than its rivals, including Samsung's Galaxy S9 series and Apple's iPhone X. That's even more impressive considering that the Galaxy S9 has the same Snapdragon 845 processor inside OnePlus 6, although the Chinese smartphone maker went crazy with RAM again. The OnePlus 6 has 8GB of RAM, while the Galaxy S9 + only gets 6GB.
The Galaxy Note 9, of course, is Samsung's next high-end smartphone. So, will it be faster than the OnePlus 6?
A benchmark for the Exynos version of the Galaxy Note 9 reveals that the handset will not offer a significant performance boost compared to the Galaxy S9. Note 9 will also come in two versions, driven by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810, as expected.
The Exynos 9810 scores are slightly higher than the Snapdragon 845 benchmark that was leaked a few years ago. We are seeing 2737 and 9064 in single or multiple core tests for the Samsung SM-N960N with Exynos engine, according to the Geekbench listing found by MobielKopen .
The Snapdragon 845 Galaxy Note 9, meanwhile, scored 2411 and 8712 in the same tests. It is worth noting that the Galaxy S9 version powered by Qualcomm also scored lower compared to the Exynos model, but improved in real-life tests.
The OnePlus 6, on the other hand, obtained 2474 and 9082 in Geekbench tests, and we noticed in our review that The multi-core score is the highest score obtained by any Android device in this benchmark.
Needless to say, neither the Galaxy S9 / Note 9 nor the OnePlus 6 can get as high as the Bionic A11 chip of the iPhone X in benchmarks.
The new benchmark, which appears in Geekbench on Friday, also reveals that the Galaxy Note 9 will have 6GB of RAM. It is unclear if Samsung will make an 8GB Galaxy Note 9 this year.
