After we broke the news of Samsung’s new model number series for tablets last week, starting with the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8, it was only a matter of time before we could find more details for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series too.
Now Sammobile have noted that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ was also benchmarked for the first time today.
In fact, when looking it over, I noticed that it’s been benchmarked over 40 times already today, and it all seems to be the 5G version SM-X808U which is powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 processor that the most reliable leaker had said it would.
In the Geekbench 5 benchmarks today, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ repeatedly clocked in scores of over 1200 in single-core and over 3200 in multi-core scores.
Not quite the 1580 / 4200 iPad Air performance yet, but it’s getting closer.
As Samsung’s Tab S8+ was running at 1.79 GHz to 3.0 GHz in the first benchmarks today, the final performance could still settle at a different level in the end, so we should still wait closer to the launch next year to know for sure how it will score.
