A new Samsung device with model number SM-X808U has been unexpectedly found on the Geekbench database. This is most likely the 5G variant of the Galaxy Tab S8+ for the US market. with information about the processor chip and memory has also been revealed.
We are looking at a high-end Android tablet model using the flagship Snapdragon 898 chip, with a single-core score of 1,211 points and a score of 3,193 points in the multi-core tests on the Geekbench performance rating scale. . The specifics are as follows:
True to previous rumors, Snapdragon 898 on Galaxy Tab S8 + will own an 8-core configuration, including 1 super high-performance core running at 3GHz, 3 high-performance 2.5GHz and 4 economical cores. power runs at 1.9GHz.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 processor problem
Similar to the flagship Galaxy Z Fold 3 folding screen smartphone product line that was just launched in early August, the upcoming Galaxy Tab S8 tablet models will most likely only have a Snapdragon chip version (specifically). maybe Snapdragon 898), instead of the traditional Exynos.
That’s the information revealed by leaker “Ice Universe”, who is known for his extremely accurate sharing about upcoming top technology products. The exact reason of course has not been revealed, but the most likely cause lies in some problems with Samsung’s production capacity with the Exynos 2200 series of chips. Before that, there were also many rumors about ca The Exynos Galaxy S22 series will also be launched in a limited number of markets than usual. Samsung will probably corner the Exynos 2200 production lines to service the Galaxy S22, which will have larger sales than the Galaxy Tab S8 in general. But in return, according to experts, it is highly likely that many Galaxy Tab S8 Snapdragon 898 variants will be introduced to meet market demand at different price points.
According to previous performance leaks, the Exynos 2200 has made a very strong impression. This chip not only beats the Snapdragon 898 in processing performance, but also scores higher than the A14 Bionic in the graphics test. This is probably thanks to the presence of the 6-core AMD RDNA2 GPU on the Exynos 2200. Therefore, the fact that Samsung cannot equip the Exynos 2200 on the Galaxy Tab S8 can bring a lot of regret.
As for the Snapdragon 898 (or possibly also known as the Snapdragon 895), this will be Qualcomm’s next-generation high-end system-on-chip (SoC) for the mobile market. This chip will be integrated with the Snapdragon X65 5G Modem-RF system, and is built on the leading 4nm process for high power efficiency.
