The early Geekbench 5 numbers for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 are promising, but not exceptional – especially beside Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro.
Now that we are heading closer to the next year, we are seeing more and more leaks regarding the Galaxy S23 series. We have talked about how the phone appeared on Geekbench, sporting 8 gigs of RAM, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and Android 13, and today, we have another leak that tells us all about the phone that we need to know.
You can have a look at the base Galaxy S23 specs below.

Those numbers mean that the phone compares well with Apple’s latest iPhone 14, powered by last year’s A15 Bionic – that chip manages scores of 1727 and 4553. But these Galaxy S22 scores don’t come close to touching Apple’s best. The iPhone 14 Pro, with the A16 Bionic, scores 1891 and 5469 based on Tom’s Guide’s tests. With that in mind, the numbers might be disappointing to some, especially compared to Apple’s fastest chip.
Samsung isn’t expected to announce the Galaxy S23 lineup until the first few months of 2023 so there is still time for scores to improve via software optimisation, so it’s perhaps too soon to judge too harshly.
