The Galaxy S23 Ultra is getting more powerful as the official launch approachesThank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
The base Galaxy S23, on Galaxy S23+and the upper end Galaxy S23 Ultra have appeared multiple times on the Geekbench website over the past few weeks. As expected, these benchmark results weren’t exactly what you’d expect from a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, no doubt because Samsung is still working on optimizing its next flagship series.
And as we get closer to the launch of these phones, things are starting to improve, at least in terms of the multi-core performance of the Galaxy S23 Ultra compared to other phones that will be powered by the same chip. The latest benchmark for the S23 Ultra shows a multi-core score of 5179which is its highest ever.
Of course, the benchmark results mean squat if the device’s real-life performance is poor, so we wouldn’t recommend getting too excited. And if you’ve got your sights set on the Galaxy S23, we’d recommend lowering your expectations even further, as all benchmark listings for the base model currently showing results that are closer to those of the Galaxy S22 series phones.
That’s likely because the base model’s smaller footprint means components are more tightly packed and there’s less space inside to dissipate heat as quickly and efficiently as the Galaxy S23 Ultra or Galaxy S23+ (which sitting a few hundred points below the S23 Ultra right now).
We hope the Galaxy S23 strikes a good balance between performance and battery life
However, until the Galaxy S23 series is official, we can’t trust anything without a healthy dose of skepticism. However, judging by the Galaxy S22 series and the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, the performance of the Galaxy S23 should be excellent, in part because the entire S23 series is expected to be powered by slightly overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip.
We just hope Samsung doesn’t focus on chip performance so much that it becomes a detriment to battery life. Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 have crazy good durability for their battery capacity thanks to TSMC Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 works, and it would be a shame if Samsung failed to replicate this on the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra in pursuit of peak performance that most customers might never need from daily use.
