Samsung Galaxy S21+ found on Geekbench with a different Exynos chipset


It's a long way to go to 2021, which when the next flagship series from Samsung would be launched. But news of the Galaxy S21 series, such as a new 3D ToF sensor and its 5000mAh battery, has been popping up lately and the latest one is about some new benchmarks. Specifically, a Geekbench record of what could be the Galaxy S21+ was found.

The device on Geekbench was listed as "Samsung SM-G996B", which is believed to be a Europe variant of the Galaxy S21+. Interestingly enough, the motherboard for the device is an 'exynos2100'. This seems to hint at it being an Exynos chipset, but many are saying that it may not be the Exynos 1000 chipset that is supposed to launch with the phone.



The reason is that the Exynos 1000 chipset is rumoured to be better than Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 875 chipset. If that's the case, then the benchmark score here isn't good enough to overtake the Qualcomm chip. You can check the comparison chart above from GSMArena for reference. Of course, there's a chance that this is just the benchmark for an engineering sample of the Galaxy S21+, so try not to take it too seriously.

With that said, what do you think about Samsung's decision to use what could be more than one choice of Exynos chipset for the Galaxy S21 series? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to for more updates on this.
