With just a couple of weeks to go for the launch event, new details regarding the smartphone keep emerging almost every other day. Even the official invite for the Galaxy S9 duo gives us some clues about what to expect.

Having said that, a mysterious device with its model number hidden has just passed through the Geekbench, revealing some of its key specs. Looking at the specs and the Geekbench scores, we think the device is none other than the Samsung Galaxy S9. Of course, we are not totally sure about this, but the chances are likely.
The smartphone is listed on Geekbench with Snapdragon 845 SoC. This further strengthen our believe that the smartphone is indeed the Samsung Galaxy S9 as the Galaxy S9 duo are expected to be the first smartphones with Qualcomm's latest flagship processor.
The Geekbench listing also shows the presence of 6GB of RAM and Android 8.0 Oreo operating system.
Earlier reports also claimed that the Galaxy S9 would feature a Snapdragon 845 chipset, and Android Oreo operating system.
The alleged Samsung Galaxy S9 has manged to obtain a single-core score of 2378 and a multi-core score of 8132. If you recall, the Galaxy S9+ had visited Geekbench in December with similar scores of 2422 and 8351 in the single-core and multi-core test respectively.
