The Samsung Galaxy S10 has been spotted on GeekBench and the numbers are in. This time, it’s the Exynos 9820 variant for South Korea (SM-G973N), and there are notable differences with the previously seen results from the S10+ in Snapdragon 855 trim.
The single-core result, in particular, is far ahead of any other chip in the Android world – the current Kirin 980 (around the 3400s) and Snapdragon 845 (ballpark is in 2400s) are no match for the next-gen Exynos, and early Snapdragon 855 figures are much lower too (3400-3550 depending on who you ask). In fact, the older Exynos 9810 gets closest, posting single core results upwards of 3600 and into the high 3700s under the right conditions. Even so, the iPhone XS remains out of reach.

The multi-core performance isn’t as impressive, though still respectable. In this scenario, however, the Exynos Galaxy S10 is bested by the Kirin-packing Mate 20s and its own Snapdragon sibling.

With the Exynos 9810, Samsung focused more on providing higher single-core performance that competing designs in the Android realm and with the 9820 that push continues. Apple’s Bionic still sets the trends in raw single-core power, but Samsung is quickly catching up.
