Earlier, we have reported that Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will come with two processor options, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and also the new Samsung Exynos 8995 processor. The Galaxy S8 variants sold in the United States, Japan, and China will feature a Snapdragon 835 chipset, while the rest of the world will get the Exynos 8895 powered variant.
The Galaxy S8 Plus with the Exynos 8995 processor has recently turned up on the GeekBench benchmarks and the device is listed with the model number SM-G955F.
