Geekbench tests show the performance of the Adreno 740 GPU, the graphics card found in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 — which may have a special name for the Galaxy S23. In this case, using the Vulkan API, he managed to register 10,744 points, which is notably higher than the 6,233 of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and also the 8,418 points in the variant with the Xclipse 920, GPU made by Samsung in partnership with AMD, seen on the current generation Exynos 2200.
The smartphone used in the test has model number SM-S918B, runs Android 13, features Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with overclocking for the Galaxy S23 series, with a maximum speed of 3.36 GHz, and 12 GB of RAM memory.
Images show results of night photography
Edwards Urbina, known as @edwards_uh, posted images on his Twitter profile that were allegedly taken by the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The device should have a main rear camera of 200 MP, with promise of improvement mainly in night photos.
The photos show a significant improvement, with the first photo of each tweet having Night mode turned off, while the second appears to have the feature turned on. The difference between the images is great, with much more clarity, being able to see everything in the scene.
The informant Ice Universe (@UniverseIce on Twitter) also joined in the fun, sharing some images that reinforce improvements in the level of detail of the photos, even when in 12 MP mode — where a pixel-binning of 16 to 1 would be done.
Now, it remains to wait for the presentation of the new trio, expected to arrive on February 1st, during the Galaxy Unpacked event. Other products are also expected to be unveiled at this event, including Galaxy Book 3 series notebooks and accessories to make up the Galaxy ecosystem.
