Galaxy S21 spotted on Geekbench – but not using Exynos 1000


The Galaxy S21 benchmarked as the Samsung “SM-G996B” lists the chipset as “Exynos 2100”, which appears to be an entirely different chipset.

The Galaxy S21 series is expected to bring in a bunch of significant upgrades from the Galaxy S20 series. He was spotted on the Geekbench and was found not using Samsung’s proprietary Exynos 1000 chipset.

With all the good things circling the Internet, Samsung’s next flagship is expected to use a new chip altogether. The Galaxy S21 series is supposed to bring in a bunch of significant upgrades.

Samsung Galaxy S21 spotted on Geekbench

The Galaxy S21 device, which was referred to as “SM-G996B”, was benchmarked today, rumors claim. This means one thing… that we are soon to see a new flagship from the Korean tech giant.

Here is the catch. The highlight is that this phone will not be powered by the Exynos 1000 chipset. Some leaked reports that the said chipset will be relatively faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC.

Apart from that, whatever results we’ve gotten from the Geekbench listing regarding Samsung’s upcoming S21 flagship are tangibly lower.

That makes sense since “SM-G996B”, and the benchmark result has given an insight into the details of the model and the processor. According to a report in GSMArena, the Geekbench score page for the SM-G996B lists the chipset as “Exynos 2100”, which appears to be an entirely different chipset.

Possible Specs and Features

The existing Samsung Galaxy S20+ 4G version has the same RAM capacity of 8GB. At the same time, the 5G version of this phone has a RAM capacity of 12GB. The Samsung Galaxy S21 is expected to have 8GB of RAM as the 6.77 GB figure likely omits the memory reserved for the GPU.

Regarding the battery, the Galaxy S21 is expected to have a battery backup of 4,800mAH, a 300mAh bump over the original Galaxy S20. It is pertinent to note that there is no information about when the upcoming Galaxy S21 series will launch.

Earlier this month, we saw a post about the S21 and S21+ batteries and now we have more details for the former as it was spotted in a Safety Korea listing bearing the same EB-BG996ABY model number.

Samsung has not yet confirmed the specifications of the Galaxy S21 yet. However, it is still expected that the upcoming smartphone will run on the latest Android 11 OS.

Android 11 is the eleventh major release and 18th version of the operating system for Android mobile. It was released on Sept. 8, at least on Pixel phones.
