Apple's Competitors
February 27, 2018

New benchmarks reveal the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are no match for either the iPhone 8 or iPhone X in terms of processing power, according to Anandtech.

Samsung’s chip in the company’s two newest smartphones, the Exynos 9810, is certainly fast. However, it doesn’t quite outperform the Apple A11 and A10.

A GeekBench 4 single core test recorded integer and floating point scores of 3,734 and 3,440, respectively, for the Samsung chip. In the same test, Apple’s A11 scored 4,630 and 3,958, respectively.

Meanwhile, the A10 beat Samsung’s chip for the integer score with 4,007. Its floating point score was 3,345, which was 95 points behind the Exynos.

The Apple A11 is found in the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. The A10 is found in the 2016 iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Announced earlier this week, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus feature 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch screen, respectively. Each includes an iris scanner, mechanically adjustable aperture, and wireless charging.

When released in the coming weeks, the Galaxy S9 will be priced at $719.99 and above while the larger model will start at $839.99.
