Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra benchmarked with high specs and low scores Samsung Galaxy S20

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is sure to be one of the most powerful phones of 2021, but how powerful it is might depend on whether you end up with an Exynos 2100 chipset (which will likely power the phone in much of the world) or a Snapdragon 888 version (expected in the US), as a benchmark shows the former delivering fairly unimpressive scores.

Spotted by 91Mobiles, a Geekbench 5 listing for the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra shows a single-core score of 1,006 and a multi-core one of 3,059. That’s with an Exynos 2100 chipset, and both of those scores are lower than we’ve previously seen in a benchmark for the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus with a Snapdragon 888.
