The US variants of the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 Ultra appeared on Geekbench last month, powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, which is likely to be unveiled at the Snapdragon Summit on November 15-17. The US version of the Plus model has now been discovered on the benchmark database alongside Qualcomm’s future flagship silicon.
The Galaxy S23+ in the United States bears the model code SM-S916U and runs Android 13, likely with One UI 5.0 on top. The smartphone features 8GB of RAM, but there will most certainly be more RAM options available.
Despite having the same processor and RAM, the S23+ performed worse in Geekbench’s single-core tests than the vanilla and Ultra variants, but performed better in multi-core testing. Because these are most likely pre-production units, we’ll hold judgement until we get our hands on retail versions, which will almost certainly perform better.
However, it is unknown whether the Galaxy S23 series will use the Snapdragon CPU in all areas or if Samsung will use the Exynos chip in certain.
