The Galaxy S20 is listed on Geekbench with a 561 single-core score and 2,358 score in the multi-core test. The handset is presumably running beta software ahead of its release, so it’s possible these numbers will improve as Samsung tweaks and optimises its One UI 2 mobile operating system for the hardware. But nonetheless, those numbers aren’t amazing.
For comparison, the iPhone 11 scores 1,328 in the single-core and 3,327 in the multi-core test on Geekbench 5, while the iPhone 11 Pro scores a 1,330 and 3,425, respectively. But things get even more embarrassing for Samsung when you begin comparing its forthcoming flagship with older smartphones, like the iPhone X. It scores a 919 single-core and 2,374 multi-score test on the Geekbench 5 benchmark test, while iPhone 8 Plus scores 923 and 2,326. So, at least Samsung Galaxy S20 is still a little faster than the 8 Plus, which launched in September 22, 2017.
