Galaxy S10 Plus looks like a beast in early testing

A set of details leaked today showing the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. This device and its name are not officially revealed by Samsung just yet – but their details are right on the verge of appearing in rendered format. This is right around the time we usually start to see a Samsung Galaxy S phone appear in CAD drawings – and it’s right on schedule for an engineering machine to hit the benchmarks.

The model that’s appeared in Antutu testing today is the SM-G975F, Samsung model “beyond2”, otherwise known as Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. The Galaxy S10 is codenamed “beyond”, and both devices seem to have very similar specifications in rumors thus far. This larger model seems to have a larger display than its closest brethren, and probably has a slightly different set of cameras – but we’ve not yet seen those as such.

The Galaxy S10 Plus shown in Antutu benchmarks this morning show it running with a Samsung Exynos 9820 processor. It’ll be released in several iterations, one of which sports 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage space. This device’s ability to beat up the benchmarks is fairly on-track for a yearly upgrade, coming to Antutu with its unrefined total score of 325,076.

When the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 was first appearing on Antutu, scores hovered around 250k. Once devices began to be released and drivers were updated, the chip scored above 290k. Once Samsung refines their own processor power here, we’ll likely see the Galaxy S10 Plus reaching above 350k. But of course all mobile benchmarks tell us very little about the end product – so who cares?

For more information on the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus – and the S10 Lite – head to the timeline below. This is set to be the biggest release from Samsung since the dawn of the Galaxy S line, with three devices coming all at once. Later in the Spring, then, we’ll see the foldable Galaxy phone too – can’t wait!
