Samsung is going to reveal everything about Samsung galaxy S10e.
But like always, so much about Samsung’s next flagship Android is leaked. The latest details say that the Samsung S10e might not be as powerful as Apple XS.
The benchmark entry, which is believed to have come from Samsung’s entry-level S10, uncertainly called the “S10e” or “S10 Lite” recorded a single-core score of 4,472 and multi-core score of 10,387.
Both scores remarkable and suggest Samsung’s own Exynos 9820 chip-set, which will power some versions of them, will close the performance gap with Apple’s own A12 Bionic chip.
The scores, however, clock in just below with the both iPhone XS and XS Max. The iPhone XS and XS Max scored 4,821 and 4,774 on the single-core CPU tests, in a row. On the multi-core test, both of Apple’s phones also logged higher scores as compared to the alleged S10e, with 11,392 and 11,380, correspondingly. Even the iPhone XR scored more than the alleged S10e with 4,773 on the single-core test and 11,301 on multi-core.
If the Geek bench entry is honest, the S10e will sport 6GB of RAM, which could give it the much speed and flexibility, that so many phones lack. Unlike an iPhone, Android needs far more RAM to uphold smooth performance.
One need only look at the remarkably smooth OnePlus 6 and 6T, which sport anyplace between 6GB to 10GB of RAM, to see how much of a variance more RAM makes. Less RAM can also ruin a great phone; a good example is the Google Pixel 3, which has received general complaints for becoming noticeably slower only a few months and software updates after launch.
With that said, Geek bench scores are everything. For many, the most significant things to consider on the new Samsung phones will be the cameras, battery life, and price.
Samsung can issue more models, cram in up to 1TB storage, including 5G, and impress with screens with “hole punch” camera cutouts, but as smartphone sales flatten and decline for everyone from Apple to Samsung, the company will need to come up with convincing reasons to get customers to upgrade.
A phone with a foldable display may be one way to get customers excited about phones again, but the often-boring basics are gradually what matters most even if they don’t make for buzzy headlines.
Everything on the S10 should be cleared on Feb. 20.
