Benchmark results

According to MySmartPrice, the phone was spotted on benchmarking website Geekbench equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset which is likely to power the device in India and most international markets. In the other markets, it will feature Samsung’s Exynos 2200 SoC whose benchmark results have been revealed earlier.


The single-core and multi-core scores across Geekbench 4 and Geekbench 5 reveal respectable performance, however, you should note that optimisation of its hardware and software is yet to be done and we will only know about its real performance once the phone is unveiled on its expected launch date of February 8.


According to reports, the device could take the model number SM-S908N at home in South Korea while the SM-908U could be its model number in other international markets.

We will see a large 6.8-inch AMOLED display with a design that borrows some features from Samsung’s Galaxy Note series such as the S pen slot. It will see a major camera upgrade, featuring quad-camera set-up, with 108MP primary sensor.

As for storage and RAM, the S22 Note (S22 Ultra) model is likely to offer 12GB RAM with 128GB or 256GB storage and 16GB with 512GB RAM.
