It is almost a guarantee that come 2023, Samsung will be launching their new Galaxy S23 series of smartphones. It is also not unreasonable to expect that they will most likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, and now it appears that benchmarks for the Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone have made their way online.
According to the benchmarks, it pretty much confirms that the handset will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and based on the results, it seems that the phone has scored 1,521 for single-core performance, and 4,689 for multi-core performance. It’s hard to say if this is good or bad since it would be better if there were other 2023 smartphones to compare it to, but for now at least compared against other 2022 handsets, it looks like it’s quite a beast.
To give you a bit of context, the Galaxy S22 using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset scored around 1,100-1,200 for single-core performance and 3,000 for multi-core, so it is clearly quite a leap ahead of its predecessor. That being said, you should take note that benchmark scores can be faked or manipulated.
It might also not necessarily be the final results as things could change in between, so don’t put too much stock into it for now. Samsung hasn’t confirmed when the Galaxy S23 series will be announced, but based on when the Galaxy S22 series was launched, we expect that it will probably take place in the early part of 2023.
