We know both phones are going to be expensive. In fact, the Galaxy Note 10+ will be so expensive that pricing is likely the main reason Samsung decided to also make an entry-level version of the phone, just like it did with the Galaxy S10e. We also know that the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ will be released on August 23rd after going up for preorder shortly after Samsung’s press conference next week. There really isn’t much left to be uncovered, but one more puzzle piece is now in place thanks to a leak uncovered on Monday morning.
Twitter user Sudhanshu Ambhore is popping up more and more these days as a source of smartphone leaks. Sometimes he shares exclusive renders of unreleased phones, but we’ve already seen the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ designs about a million times, so on Monday morning, he managed to come up with something different: Geekbench benchmark test scores for the Galaxy Note 10+.
Released nearly a year ago, Apple’s iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are still the most powerful smartphones on the market. In the same Geekbench tests,the iPhone XS Max managed a single-core score of 4798 and a multi-core score of 11216, handily beating Samsung’s brand new Galaxy Note 10+. It remains remarkably impressive just how well Apple’s iPhones age, and just how much more powerful iPhones are than new Android flagships even a year after they’re first released.
