Samsung’s upcoming flagship has had many leaks till now. One of the reports has even claimed that Galaxy S21 Ultra, the high-end of this S21 series, may support the stylus. This is in relevant to killing the Galaxy S21 Note series too. Besides, the handset’s renders have also been leaked.
Now, a GeekBench listing has surfaced even more results. These include the handset’s model number as SM-G991U, software as Android 11 (along with One UI 3.0+ probably), 8GB of RAM and a chipset named “Lahaina”. Well, Lahania is the codename of Snapdragon 888.
The high-end chip was unveiled by Qualcomm earlier this month, and it’s the first 800 series chip from Qualcomm to support 5G. It supports dual-band 5G, Wi-Fi, Adreno 660 GPU and latest generation AI, NPU, Game Elite etc.
As per GeekBench testing, the handset has benchmark scores of 1075 points in a single test and 2916 points in the multi-core test.
