Ahead of its reveal on February 20, 2019, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus benchmark and specs have been leaked. Suffice to say, it looks like being a powerful bit of kit. What are the differences between the Galaxy S10 Plus vs S9 Plus? Read on for a full breakdown of the S10 benchmark and specifications and how the new phone compares to the S9 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Benchmark – Geekbench rating and specifications

The Galaxy S10 Plus benchmark and specifications have been leaked ahead of reveal by Geekbench. Although normally a trustworthy site, it is worth taking these specs with a pinch of salt until the specifications are confirmed by Samsung. Despite this, based on the Geekbench specs and score, you can expect one powerful phone when the S10 Plus is released. With a single-core score of 3413 and a multi-core score of 10,256, the Galaxy S10 Plus ought to blow its competition away.

Below, you will find the full Galaxy S10 specs as per Geekbench:

  • Operating System: Android 9
  • Memory: 5380 MB
  • Processor: 8-core ARM implementer 81 architecture 1.78 GHz
  • Camera: Rear triple camera / Front double camera
  • Battery: 4000 mAh / 5000 mAh rumored for the 5G model
  • Screen size: 6.44 inch

If Samsung is following its own trends, there should be multiple versions of the Galaxy S10 Plus. These will likely vary in screen size. The good news is that if there are multiple versions of the S10 Plus in screen size, the internal specs will always remain the same. You’ll likely get the same beefy battery, hefty RAM, and powerful processor no matter what version of the phone you pick up. There’s no need to worry there. Of course, and we can’t say this enough, this is speculation based on past form and leaked specifications. The official reveal of the S10 and all its siblings is on February 20, 2019.

Unfortunately, as the phone itself hasn’t been shown off yet, let alone released, so we don’t know the exact specifications with regard to form factor. Nevertheless, it’s looking like the Galaxy S10 Plus will be a powerful phone, offering all that you’d expect from something marketed as a company flagship device. How about the Galaxy S10 Plus vs S9 Plus? Of course, the Galaxy S10 Plus will be 2019’s equivalent to the S9 Plus. This means that those looking to upgrade (or those of us simply looking to buy a new Samsung phone) will want to know the difference between the two phones.

As the S9 Plus is an older phone, it will be the cheaper of the two, but it’s specs and benchmark scores are lower than those of the S10 Plus. Below, you’ll find comparisons between the two phones based on what we know about the S10 Plus. Thanks to Geekbench for the scores.

  • Single-core score:
    • S10 Plus: 3413
    • S9 Plus: 3315
  • Multi-core score:
    • S10 Plus: 10256
    • S9 Plus: 8860

With a reported 6.44 inch screen, the S10 Plus comes in larger than the S9 Plus. We’d expect the S10 to feature a Super AMOLED curved screen that displays in Quad HD+ or 4K resolution. Both phones reportedly share the same level of RAM, but there is speculation that the 5G version of the S10 Plus will come with 8 or even 12 GB rather than the standard offering of six. One of the biggest improvements along with the beefier processor in the S10 Plus, however, looks to be its battery.

The reported base model of the S10 Plus will come with a hefty 4000 mAh battery, a marked improvement on the S9 Plus’s 3500 mAh offering. In general, we’d expect the Galaxy S10 Plus to come with all the major features of the S9 Plus, such as the strong water resistance, Samsung Knox, and perhaps facial recognition too. The S10 Plus is looking to be something else, folks.

While we don’t know exactly what the differences between the two phones will be, we are certain that the first impressions of the S10 Plus are impressive when comparing the pair. Just how much better will it be than the Galaxy S9 Plus? For that, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait and see. Again, these specs and benchmark scores were taken from something of a leak. The images in this article, too, are of the S9 Plus. We’ll have to wait to discover what the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus looks like as well.
