A long time prior, we got our first spilled benchmarks of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus. Presently the vanilla Galaxy S21 has additionally showed up on Geekbench with comparative outcomes, as you would expect for two handsets foreseen to utilize a similar center Snapdragon 888 chipset.
The telephone, donning the model number SM-G991U and running on the ‘Lahaina’ chipset, scores 1,075 in single-center tests, and 2,916 in multi-center. That is somewhat more fragile than the scores for the S21 Plus which accomplished 1,120 and 3,319 in the two tests, yet pretty much inside the overall safety buffer for indistinguishable chipsets tried in various conditions (simply take a gander at the scope of Samsung Galaxy S20 scores for verification).
While these are strong figures that ought to give a smooth Android experience, the awful news is that it doesn’t appear to be that Qualcomm’s 5nm Snapdragon 888 SoC has done what’s needed to close the hole with the Apple A14 that controls the iPhone 12, which accomplished single-center and multi-center Geekbench scores of 1,593 and 3,859, individually.
However, note that benchmarks don’t recount the full story – particularly for another chipset like the Snapdragon 888, which was just formally disclosed three days back. There will be a lot of improvement going on in the background to ensure that the new chip proceeds as well as could be expected in front of the S21’s supposed January delivery date. Also, regardless of whether this truly is at least somewhat great, a portion of the primary enhancements of the Snapdragon 888 — in photography, AI and gaming — won’t be gotten by Geekbench’s test. It just measures computational speed.
In any case, it does make another subplot of the Samsung Galaxy S21’s delivery somewhat more intriguing: where does this leave Exynos 2100 controlled gadgets? In past years, Galaxy S and Note gadgets purchased in the US have utilized Qualcomm Snapdragon chips, while those bought somewhere else have had Samsung’s own Exynos same. As a rule, while apro, the Exynos chips have been noticeably more slow when tried next to each other.
This year, nonetheless, it would appear that the hole might be shutting a bit. A previous spilled benchmark of the Exynos 2100 demonstrated Geekbench 5 scores of 1,040 and 3,107 – very near the S21 scores uncovered here.
We’ll need to check whether this presentation holds for the two renditions of the handset when they dispatch in mid 2021. While we’re anticipating normal iterative changes from the S20 to S21, the genuine move is set to make place with the S21 Ultra model, which is because of highlight a LTPO show, two optical long range focal points and conceivable S Pen uphold.
