Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S-series is doing rounds on the certifications / benchmarking sites. Now, the Galaxy S22 has been spotted on the Geekbench website model number SM-S901U. The device is listed with a Qualcomm SoC which is most likely the Snapdragon 895 / Snapdragon 898 chipset. It will also be available in Exynos 2200 SoC, depending upon the region. Let’s now look at the key specifications revealed by the Galaxy S22 Geekbench listing.
Samsung Galaxy S22 is powered by the “Taro” code-named chipset, which could be SD895 / SD898 SoC. As revealed by the Geekbench listing, it is an octa-core processor with 4 cores running at 1.79GHz, 3 cores running at 2.5GHz, and has a prime core running at 3GHz. Adreno 730 GPU does all the graphics-related work.
The 8GB RAM variant of Galaxy S22 is listed on the benchmarking site. However, it is most likely to be offered in a 12GB RAM option too. The device boots Android 12 OS and is likely to come with One UI 4.0 skin at the top.
When tested on Geekbench v5, the Galaxy S22 Qualcomm variant scored 475 points in the single-core and 1,393 points in the multi-core test. Notably, the scores are not impressive, as it can even be achieved by most mid-ranger phones. Earlier this month, Vivo V2102A was spotted on the benchmarking site with the same SoC offering better single-core and multi-core scores. It usually happens, when the chip is under the testing phase. As of now, Qualcomm has not announced the launch details for its next flagship SoC. Last year, the Snapdragon 888 was announced in December, and this time around we can expect the company to follow the same timeline.
Samsung Galaxy S22 flagship lineup is expected to be unveiled in January next year. The series reportedly consists of three phones – Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra. As of now, there’s no word from Samsung regarding the launch or availability of the Galaxy S22 series. We can expect more details to surface once we get close to the launch.
