Samsung Galaxy J8+ hits Geekbench with Snapdragon 625

The Samsung Galaxy J8 is back at Geekbench, but this time with a different chipset. A couple of weeks ago we saw it with an Exynos 7870 chipset at its heart (that was the SM-J800FN version), now theres a Snapdragon 625 there (this is the SM-J805G version).

This could be a Plus model, Galaxy J8+, with a slightly faster chipset and more memory. Both versions of the phone ran Android 8.0 Oreo.

This J805G model has 4GB of RAM while the previous model we saw had 3GB. Both chipsets have octa-core Cortex-A53 processor but are clocked differently 1.8GHz vs. 1.6GHz in favor of the Galaxy J8+.

Even so, the performance is essentially the same:

GeekBench 4.1 (single-core)

Higher is better

Galaxy J8+(SM-J805G)

Galaxy J8 (SM-J800FN)

GeekBench 4.1 (multi-core)

Higher is better

Galaxy J8+ (SM-J805G)

Galaxy J8 (SM-J800FN)

We suspect that the storage will be different too with the appropriate increase in price. It remains to be seen if there will be a non-Plus version (J800) with a Snapdragon chipset or not.

That aside, the FN version will likely be available in Europe, Asia and the Middle East while the G version is probably headed to South America and parts of Asia.
