Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC appears on Geekbench

Earlier this week, the Samsung Galaxy S23 US variant was spotted on Geekbench. Now the Ultra variant from the next-generation S23 lineup has appeared on the benchmarking platform. It is listed with model number SM-S918U, where ‘U’ seems to be the US version. The listing has been spotted by publication MySmartPrice and it also reveals key specifications of the device. The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is expected to debut in January or February 2023, however, the devices have started doing the rounds on the web.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra is the second device from the S23 family to appear on the Geekbench database. The motherboard is codenamed ‘Kalama’ which is the same as the regular variant. It refers to the upcoming Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The SoC has one prime core ticking at 3.36GHz, four mid-cores at 2.80GHz, and three energy-efficient cores clocked at 2.02GHz. There is said to be an Adreno 740 GPU onboard. The listing also reveals that the S23 Ultra will pack 8GB RAM but we can expect more at launch. The device will run Android 13 OS out of the box.

In benchmark tests, the S23 Ultra scores 1,521 and 4,689 points in single-core and multi-core results. In comparison, the regular S23 scored 1,524 and 4,597 points respectively. Apart from the aforementioned information, the Geekbench listing does not reveal any additional details.

Last month, the Galaxy S23 Ultra was spotted on China’s 3C certification website with 25W fast charging support which seems to be a downgrade from its predecessor. Apart from an upgraded camera and processor, the S23 Ultra is not tipped to pack any other upgrades. The S23 Ultra is reportedly confirmed to feature a 200MP main camera sensor. Meanwhile, the CAD-based renders also don’t reveal any major design changes on the next-generation Ultra model.
