The Geekbench listing lists Samsung with the phone model number SM-G996U, which was previously associated with the Samsung Galaxy S21 +. This phone is listed in the listing with the ‘Lahaina’ processor, which is believed to be the codename of the Snapdragon 875 processor. It is quite clear that Samsung’s latest flagship can knock with the latest Qualcomm processor, which is not surprising. This alleged Galaxy S 21+ smartphone is also listed with 8 GB RAM and Android 11.
Let me tell you, the information on this Geekbench listing was first made public by SamMobile, in which this model number was called Samsung Galaxy S21 and not Galaxy S21 Plus.
This phone has received a single core score 1,120 and multi-core score 3,319 on the benchmark site. In September, the phone with model number SM-996B was considered as Galaxy S21 Plus which is listed on Geekbench with Exynos 2100 processor. At that time it had a single-core score of 1,040 and multi-core score of 3,107. In both listings, the phone is listed with 8 GB RAM, Android 11 and Octa-core processor. The Snapdragon 875 processor has a base frequency of 1.80GHz and the Exynos 2100 has a base frequency of 2.21GHz.
Samsung has been the trend of Snapdragon and Exynos variants in the Galaxy S series, where the Snapdragon variant has proved to be superior in performance. If the Snapdragon 865 processor phone in the Samsung Galaxy S20 series has not been launched in the Indian market, then it can be assumed that something similar may also happen with the Galaxy S21 series.
Qualcomm may introduce the Snapdragon 875 processor on December 1, while Samsung may introduce the Galaxy S21 series before its traditional launch. According to the report, this launch event can be held in mid-January.
